Coasts and beaches to practice the Slow Travel (Part II: Spain)

In the previous post I focused on the beaches and coasts that more I liked which I have known outside of Spain. Fortunately here we also have a large and varied coastline that allows us to enjoy very areas and activities that are very different from each other. Here are my favorites:


Ortegal area is one of most uknown and beautiful coasts in Spain. Fisherman villages, history of pirates, live music and enormous beaches just for yourself (or almost). The views from the known as "the most beautiful in the bank of the world" are spectacular and sail under the cliffs in a sailing boat is something difficult to forget.


Cadiz coast is one of those places that catch, much less crowded than the rest of the Andalusian coasts, enjoys broad sandy beaches almost virgin. My favorite is the Palmar by their dunes, its environment and because many times there are waves. Other plans may be walking by the nearby cliffs or next to the Trafalgar Lighthouse and complete the day dining the new gastronomy market of Vejer.


Despite the culture, nature and history of Menorca, if something is known this island is by its wonderful beaches, white sand, turquoise waters, but also red or volcanic. There are plenty to choose from and the best thing to do is ask the locals for those secrets where to go in the months of more occupation. Stephanie Ses Sucreres and Anja of Jardí Ses Bruixes have their favorites in different points of the island.


Rías Baixas is one of coastal areas that I know best and that I like most (despite the fact that the water this cold). Although the Cies Islands are the most awards are carried and with all meritocracies, if you go in summer you will find boats up in the direction of this paradise. If you are going in the summer months are more than recommended the coves of the southern part of the Island of Arousa within the PN among pine trees and rocks; and if in addition, from there you get a canoe you can get to a deserted island.


In the Asturian coast, following the “path of the beans” from Torre de Villademoros comes to the cliffs from which you can access several coves of sand and boulders in which you can only be even in the best days days of summer. I near this characteristic fishing villages in Luarca, Cudillero and Puerto de Vega.


The images of the coves of the transparent waters of the Costa Brava with the pine trees reaching almost to the shore are some of the most well known of all along the Spanish coastline. Even so some of their areas remain relatively quiet, walking by the Camins de Ronda or diving are the stars activities.
