More reminiscent of North Africa than the Iberian Peninsula, Almería
boasts 3,000 hours of sunshine each year. This makes it a perfect choice for autumn and winter walking, as is Lanzarote
, where you can walk through volcanic landscapes of many colours. In northern Spain, green is the predominant colour on the aptly named Costa Verde
, where hills tumble down towards secluded coves. Tranquillity also reigns in northern Ibiza
, well away from the party set, and on Menorca
, a charming island characterised by golden beaches guarded by crumbling towers.
