Cádiz is a beautiful city to get lost in. It has people who help us feel comfortable, and an old area where you can discover small shops and central squares where you can have a drink on the terrace and in the sun. Although obviously the weather is not like summer and we may not bathe in the waters of the famous Caleta beachYes, we can see all these environments. And if we are fond of water sports such as kitesurfing, we are in the ideal place.
If we leave the peninsula we can go to Ceuta, a place where other cultures mix and that has a lot to offer us. See the royal walls, which transport us to bygone times, or stroll through the Mediterranean park. There are also small islands nearby, such as Perejil or Santa Catalina. We can also go hiking on Monte Hacho, and we will also be very close to Morocco, in case we want to make one more getaway.
Melilla is another city located on the African continent that belongs to Spain, and in which we can enjoy an enviable time for this time of year. We can walk through Hernandez Park, but one of its greatest attractions is to see the XNUMXth century citadel. It still has three of the four original walled enclosures. Other places to see are the Plaza de España or the Military Museum.
In Alicante at this time it is still cold, it is true, but not as cold as in some cities in the center or north, so it may be a good idea for a weekend getaway. We can go up to the old Santa Barbara Castle, from which there are spectacular views, and see the island of Tabarca, a place that is also a must-see as it is a natural park.
Ibiza is another of those interesting destinations that we find during the winter. On this island there is not as much atmosphere as in summer, but it is a more relaxed way of seeing it. We will not go to the beach but we can walk quietly through Dalt Vila and prices are sure to drop a lot in the low season. There are many quiet corners, towns and beaches to see without having to go in summer, when everything is packed with tourists.
In the Canary Islands we find another vein to escape the cold winter. And in this case we can even go to the beach, because temperatures can be 25 degrees on these islands. Fuerteventura is one of them, with the obligatory visit to mount Tindaya, or the famous Cofete beach. You can also visit the small towns, such as El Cotillo, or La Ampuyeta.
Lanzarote is another destination that tends to be crowded in summer, but enjoys great weather all year round. On this island we can enjoy the black sand beaches, but also visits such as the Timanfaya national park, or the Cueva de los Verdes, the tunnel formed by the Corona Volcano.
On the island of Tenerife we also have a great offer all year round with great weather. We will not only enjoy the hotel pool, but also beaches such as Playa de Los Cristianos or La Tejita. The Teide visit It is a must, going up in its cable car to have incredible views of the island. We can also visit the Loro Parque or the Siam Park, a very fun water park.
We are now going to the south of the peninsula, and Malaga can be a good destination during the winter season. The weather is still good to enjoy the Costa del Sol, but if there is no beach day, we have other things to do, such as seeing the Alcazaba or the Roman Theater.
Another southern city that can offer us many interesting things. In Seville we not only find a very interesting old area, but there are many monuments to see, such as the Giralda, the Torre del Oro or the Real Alcazar.
