START THE YEAR IN YOUR SWIMSUIT

For several decades, among the rituals of initiation for the New Year we have started noting a first dive into the water, a great way to start the year with a sporty, healthy, and energetic manner and of course, in a swimsuit.

These collective dips occur in more and more cities and countries. Lisbon in Portugal, gathers its daring bathers on the beach in Carcavelos, Cascais, since 1943. What began as a challenge among friends today gathers thousands of people every year.

In Spain, with Barcelona as a pioneer, more and more cities that join tradition, such as Valencia and Gran Canaria.

This collective madness brings together daring swimmers who stand the cold and run into the sea to shake off the remains of the year gone by and welcome the next. And after a swim, nothing like a good meal to warm up again.

Is there a better way to start the year than to do it in a swimsuit? It’s always summer somewhere. Make it. Wear it.

SPAIN’S MOST EXTRAORDINARY BEACHES

The Spanish coast harbors unusual landscapes that drive us to places we never expected. Today we want to show you some of the most fascinating beaches in our country, trips worth taking any time of the year.

sakoneta

Sakoneta Beach, Guipúzcoa, País Vasco. Striking for its landscape drawn over time with the soft going and coming waves. Located at the outsides of the city of San Sebastian, this place remains in a wild state that makes it special.

charco-azul

Charco Azul Beach, El Hierro, Canary Islands. One of the most spectacular swimming areas located on the smallest of the Canary Islands, it consists of two natural pools in a cluster of caves that point directly to the wild Atlantic Ocean. Turquoise waters and the ocean’s surrounding sound will not leave you indifferent!

ses-illetes

Ses Illetes Beach, Formentera, Balearic Islands. This tongue of land that enters the sea almost touching s’Espalmador Island, is a curious picture of calm waters on one side, and waves on the other.

las-catedrales

Catedrales (Cathedrals) Beach, Lugo, Galicia. Its peculiar rock formation has earned to its magnificent nickname and is considered one of the most amazing beaches in the world. Its caves and crannies can only be crossed until noon, because after that the tide and the ocean take back this natural temple.

gulpiyuri

Gulpiyuri Beach, Asturias. This tiny beach it has been declared Natural Monument, is so special because the sea reaches her through a tunnel between rock walls.
