Despite the beautiful beaches, swimming is not the most popular activity in this area, as the maximum temperatures in summer are close to 22ºC.
On the other hand winters are not very cold, the minimum temperature in mid-July does not usually fall below 4ºC.
Rainfall is not the most frequent issue in this area of the country, but we will not be safe from rain at any time of the year; Summer is the driest season, whose daily probability of precipitation is around 20%, and winter is the rainiest, with a daily probability of around 35%. Normally it is cloudy at any time of the year.
In short, in terms of weather, the best time to visit it is summer: December, January and February.
But it coincides with the largest influx of visitors. This should not be relevant if we are going to carry out any activity other than overnight along the Coastal Track, which requires a reservation for its huts and campsites, so before venturing to explore it, we must check if there is availability on its official website and book if there is. With more than 300,000 visitors a year, the number of hikers on the track is very high, but only 20% spend the night on the route; Even so, the number exceeds 250 per day in high season and the most popular campsites and huts can be booked months in advance.
