WALKING IN SPAIN - LOVLEY WEATHER, WARM SEA, INTERESTING WALKS
I have chosen September for walking as the sea will still be warm and perfect for swimming, the days a little cooler for walking and the crowds gone after everyone has gone back to school.
We will stay in the mountain village of Castro which is quiet, got delicious spring water and beautiful views out over the mountains.
Every day we will leave for a walk after breakfast about 10.00
Our walks will not be a race as it is important that we enjoy our surroundings and have a chance to take photos, listen to the birds and just enjoy the variety of habitations that surrounds us.
The walks will include the only desert in Europe, the desert of Tabernas; coastal walk in Cabo da Gata National Park, white village and mountains walks.
We will start each day about 10.00 after breakfast and have a late lunch out. I will confirm all the details the night before.
There will usually be a possibility to opt out along the way if you chose to relax or do something else.
