It’s finally time to put away jackets and umbrellas in the northern hemisphere, and exchange them for sunglasses and swim trunks. In Spain, from Galicia to Ibiza, from Andalucia to Fuerteventura, beaches across the country have their sandy offerings ready before the summer influx of visitors arrive. Check out some of our proposals for this time of the year:
Granadella Cove (Alicante)
Just 200 meters long and barely 20 wide, this minute paradise in Alicante, in southeastern Spain, is perfect to dive and snorkel, or take a canoe to enjoy its rocky cliffs.
D’Hort Cove (Ibiza)
Fine sand and clear waters, D’Hort Cove is considered one of the best beaches in Ibiza. A magic location, nested by the magnificent Es Vedra island nearby.
One of the most beautiful beaches in northern Spain, it is formed by a long canal between two cliffsides, joining the very own Guadam√≠a River and the Bay of Biscay.
Canyelles Cove (Girona)
Located in Lloret de Mar, this beach is surrounded by pine trees and cliffs. Its clear waters and sandy bottoms make it a perfect spot to practice snorkeling and underwater fishing.
Cofete Beach (Fuerteventura)
The most renowned natural beach in the Canary Islands. A perfect place to enjoy nature in it purest state along its 12 kilometers of sands surrounded by mountains.
M√≥nsul Beach (Almer√≠a)
M√≥nsul Beach, surrounded by lava inlets that reached sea water, tides and wind have done the rest in shaping this diamond in the Mediterranean. The most magical place in Cabo de Gata.
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 Beach, Guip√ļzcoa, Pa√≠s 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 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 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.
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 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.
As summer arrives to Tarifa, it is definitely the time head for its beach bars, chill outs, and sunsets with entertaining background music. Today we want to introduce you to a renowed hangout in Tarifa, Tumbao, an iconic place envolved in a relaxed atmosphere and located on the spectacular beach of Valdevaqueros.
Run by the three Whaley brothers and located on Valdevaqueros Beach Bar since 2010, Tumbao is considered by many as the ideal place to relax ‘tumbao’ (lying) on the lawn next to the beach, enjoying a refreshing mojito or beer, while watching the flying kites of those kitesurfing.
Although their mojitos of different flavours are excellent, you cannot leave Tarifa without trying one of its burgers. The magic of this place is also enhanced with the spontaneous or planned concerts which bring a lot of interesting and different folks to this place.
Because a full beach day in Tarifa starts early and ends late, you better not leave without lying at Tumbao.
Location: Valdevaqueros, Road N340 Km 75
Opening: from Easter to mid September
