swimming in November and footwear for walking

We are going to Jardin deTecina for one week at the end of November. Will it be warm enough for swimming and what footwear do we need for walkiing.

Yes, it should be warm enough for swimming (for us hardy northern types). I've swum at Xmas before and it was fine once you get in. There're also several pools at the hotel which will be warmer than the sea.

Unless you are doing the serious walks, many of the walks can be done in ordinary footware, provided you've got good, non-slip soles. I've been all over the island in ordinary shoes, no problem, but I'd maybe get proper boots for the cliff walks.

What kind of footwear you need depends really on the hikes you do. We did a fairly easy hike in the laurel rain forest and our trekking sandals were sufficient. Anyway, we did another hike to the waterfall near Valle Gran Rey and there you should have good footwear with non-slip soles. Anyway, I was quite happy about wearing my hiking boots. We did a third hike - El Tion near Vallehermoso - where in my opinion hiking boots was a good option … at least for part of the way. I think for quite a few walks/hikes you don't neccesarily need hiking boots but for some you should have them.
