Considering travelling around the south of Spain over the summer? Here are our top tips on how to make the most of it!
1. Plan for the heat (and be realistic about it!)
The south of Spain can exceed 30ºc on any given day during the months of July and August. The further inland you go, the hotter it will get. So if you are planning on travelling during these months, make sure you always have water with you, sun cream and a hat.
2. Don’t overload your agenda
The heat can often be overwhelming. Plan one or two activities or things to see for a day. We recommend using the cooler mornings to do things and spend the rest of the time wandering around or relaxing in the cool. Which leads us to our next point:
3. Stay somewhere with a pool or near the sea
Doing your sightseeing in the mornings allows you to spend the hottest parts of the day in the cool of a pool or the sea. This will be a life saver when it’s too hot to move!
4. Traffic can get busy
Summer traffic can get really bad in the south of Spain, so make sure you plan enough time to get to your destination and have enough water and snacks on hand to deal with the heat. If you’re renting a vehicle, make sure it has aircon!
5. Check out different ways to sightsee!
You don’t always have to walk around when sightseeing. Find out if you can rent bikes or scooters to whizz around, take a horse drawn carriage ride, jump on a segway or even take a boat around! These options might keep you a little cooler during these hot months!
