While living in Denmark, November was always the month I feared the most. It gets colder, the countryside bare and dull and the darkness sneaks up on you way too early in the afternoon. Here in Spain November has become one of my favourite months.
In this area there is the huge difference in high season and low season, and November is the month where many aeroplane companies stop their flights for almost 6 months and the number of tourists drops drastically causing a lot of restaurants, hotels and tourists attractions to close down. Us included! We close in November & December every year.
Many ask us where we’re going to spend our holiday. And the answer is off course; HERE! November is a gorgeous month. It’s still quite sunny, the beaches and the roads are almost empty. The weather is perfect for hiking, cycling, walking the dog on beach, watching our son’s football matches, surfing and 90% of our lunches this month we have enjoyed outside on the terrace. But it is not just November, but all the winter months, there is like this. Yes, we do get rain, strong winds and the temperature might drop to 10 degrees(C) but mainly it is a beautiful time for outside activities. There is a reason for why this is called the Coast of Light.
I can not figure out why Costa de la Luz is such an overlooked coastline for active holiday during the winter months.
