BEACHES OF SPAIN.
What Spain is famous for all over the world, except for the sights, is its amazing beaches! There are a great many of them, more than 1700 – sea and ocean, continental and island, sand and pebble … Spanish beaches are very diverse. Among them there are long open to all winds and waves, and there are small secluded coves where the water is warmed by the gentle sun and you can swim all year round. And there is a cross between an open coastal strip and a closed bay. This is a semicircle of water and sand, where light waves walk, but there is never a fierce storm.
But what is characteristic of almost all Spanish beaches is the blue flags of ecological purity. You can completely fearlessly take sunbathing and water treatments on them. The beaches of Spain are an ideal place for water sports such as jet skis or sailing catamarans. A well-developed beach infrastructure allows you to relax by the sea with all kinds of comfort.
We immediately warn you, no matter what category the hotel you have chosen, your beach is not there. In Spain, all sea coasts, including beaches, are national property. No one can buy. Fence or otherwise restrict free access to the beach. All Spanish beaches are free. So on the coast you can choose any one that you like.
This site presents absolutely all the beaches of Spain, all provinces and the entire coast. You can not only see their geographical location, but also view photos.
The best beaches on the east coast are located on the Costa Blanca. The “white coast” of Spain stretches for 212 kilometers. And about half – 101 kilometers – is a strip of magnificent fine sandy beaches that gave the name to the famous resort. Almost all of them are marked with blue flags of the European Union, which are awarded for the cleanliness of beaches and water. On the Costa Blanca in the provinces of Alicante, Valencia and Almeria, you can swim from May to October.
Beaches in Torrevieja.
On the coat of arms of the resort town of Torrevieja, the phrase “Torrevieja is white from salt and tanned from the sun” flaunts. About salt – this is not at all because the city is one of the largest salt production centers in Europe, but because the coast of Torrevieja is washed from three sides by the gentle waters of the salty Mediterranean Sea. And about the sun, and so it is understandable, because there is no second place in Europe where the sun shines for about 350 days a year! The sea and the sun are the main wealth of the city. And these two temptations together can be obtained if you descend on the golden sand of numerous city beaches. On all beaches there are sun loungers and sun protection fungi, fresh water speakers, coastal bars and restaurants, beach stalls with ice cream and soft drinks, rental water bikes, catamarans, first-aid posts and rescue stations. From north to south within the city are the following beaches: La Mata, Los Locos, de Cura, Asekyon, Naufragos and Punta Prima. And between them stretches a bizarre amazingly beautiful rocky coast, interrupted by small secluded sandy bays. A common feature of all the beaches of Torrevieja is the fine golden sand. But the shape of these beaches is different. The beaches of La Mata, Acekion and Naufragos are direct beaches open to all the waves and winds, where there are all conditions for sailing. Punta Prima is a closed and cozy bay. And the beaches of Los Lokos and De Kura are large arched sections of the coast, not too closed, but protected from large waves by breakwaters and capes. These beaches are located in the central part of the city, directly adjacent to the beautiful promenades.
And on the outskirts of the city directly adjacent to Torrevieja are the magnificent sandy beaches of the cities of Guardamar and Orihuela. Many citizens love to relax on them.
Beaches of Guardemar
Guardamar de Segur resort in the province of Alicante – a typical “beach paradise” of the Mediterranean. In a small town during the peak season gathers up to 200 thousand tourists. The local sandy beach stretches for 11 kilometers. Depending on the state of the sea – calm, worried or stormy – green, yellow and red flags appear on the beach. If you have a red flag, swimming is not recommended.
Vacationing Spaniards come to the beach with their umbrellas, tents, mats, sun loungers. Tourists rent loungers under canopies. All beach accessories, including sunblock and sunblock, can be purchased at nearby stores. Along the beach there are showers, their use is free. And cabins for changing clothes on Spanish beaches are not provided.
Guardamar de Segur beach is crowded in the summer, so lovers of secluded relaxation go to the so-called “free beach”. It is named so not only because you can sunbathe in what the mother gave birth. This is the only place in the area where you can come with dogs. Pets are not allowed on other beaches.
