October is still warm here..
When autumn arrives on the Costa del Sol, one of the best seasons to visit the area has just begun. Autumn, or fall, means that summer is over in most parts of Europe.
Is it Really Fall If You’re Still Wearing Flip Flops?
In southern Spain, autumn is nothing but late summer; with sunny beach or pool days, the golf season starting again and many sunny days still to enjoy on the beach or by the pool.
No, summer is not over yet! Not in Southern Spain!
If you disregard the traditional calendar dates, summer in Andalusia is every sunny day all year long. Southern Spain is where you can enjoy a day by the swimming pool in December.
