Autumn arrives once again and we say say goodbye to summer before getting back into routine. However, a change of seasons does not have to be so traumatic. For those who are lucky enough to live in a coastal city like Barcelona, going to the beach in October is still a possibility that's within their grasp. While it is true that sunbathing in a swimsuit will be impossible, there are still other very interesting alternatives, such as:
La playa es un lugar ideal para hacer ejercicio. Además, gracias a que en otoño baja la intensidad del sol, en ella se está especialmente a gusto. Running, voleibol, circuitos de gimnasia... cualquier opción es válida.
In October, the bars are still open so you can always take advantage of a Sunday stroll to visit the bar you like in order to have a nice lunch with drinks whilst listening to some music.
If you have one of these loyal pets, you must know that in autumn, you will have no problem taking her to the beach and letting her bathe and wallow in the sand. Yes, you will have to clean her up afterwards!
Those who like water sports know perfectly well that autumn, in particular, October, is the best time for windsurfing and many other water sports activities.
Many studies claim that the beach is the perfect place to unwind from daily life routines. In summer, Barcelona has an influx of tourists so relaxing on the beach is virtually impossible. But in autumn, the opposite happens. So, if you start to feel the effects of work stress on your body, take a free morning to lie on a towel and relax whilst listening to the sea waves.
Having a picnic with family or friends is something that everyone wants, especially in October. Take your picnic basket, a couple of bottles of wine, and some nibbles before going to the nearest beach and enjoying the sunset.
It is clear that October is a favourite month for those who can not stand noisy and overcrowded beaches. Furthermore, the inability to sunbathe or take a dip, unless you are really brave, lets you use your imagination and consider other alternatives such as the ones we have mentioned here. There is no doubt that you will feel better by spending a leisurely time on the beach.
