A day at the beach is always a delight, which beach we choose depends on how the family is feeling, in need of chilling, adventure or people watching, or perhaps rocky without sand, that’ll be for my OH – he doesn’t do sand !! There are plenty of fabulous beaches to choose from, and plenty to suit all our needs.
Sweeping golden sand, rocky coves, hidden gems, or glamorous beach clubs with waiter service, that’ ll do nicely. Just 30 minutes from La Rosilla, and a world away from the mountains.
This years beach season seemed to take for ever to arrive, and our first planned beach day the weather looked questionable, but I was determined, I’d worked hard, needed a change of scenery and a spit roast chicken had my name on it. So we packed up, things for every eventuality and headed to the Costa. Our favourite hidden cove, on the Nerja coastline was our destination, and yes the weather was, well, parky, but then that came with it’s positives no-one else had braved the day and we had the beach to ourselves.
Waves, wind, bat & ball, picnic, treasure hunts and rosie glow.
Torre-del-Mar is a charming, traditionally Spanish seaside town, with a long shingle beach. At the very end of the town, over the last few years, have popped up some fabulous beach clubs, the ideal way to while a way a day, relaxing, chilling, sipping and dining, all the style without the Costa price tag.
Our last trip to the Beach club, a rare day in the week that me and my husband were off together, and yes I can get him to the ‘Beach Club’ , again was weather challenging, it was blowing a hoolie, and natural skin exfoliation occurred, after a few hours and many moves of the sunbed to face out of the wind, we gave up and headed…to the bar 😉
The weather from now on in should settle, and from tomorrow school is out for Summer 🙂 Beach time here we come.
I’ve never tried any of the Beach Clubs at Torre del Mar – must try and do something about that this year 🙂
