The coast is not as beautiful as the roads inland imo
Because of overbuilding. Better coastal scenery in the North West of Spain.

There are great beaches, coves etc as well as mountains all along that coastline - Galicia, Asturias and Cantabria. The Basque part has some great scenery too. And because it gets a fair amount of rainfall there is a lot of greenery too...which means very few Brits come there! But beware of people from Madrid in August...

For me, it has to be Javea or Denia. I was recently in Estepona too which was lovely too

Not that I am aware of. Here they usually float their boats and take on passengers in harbours not from a pier.

I think the literary reference passed you by - Ed of Wigan, looking for somewhere with a pier?

No it didn't, but don't forget I come from Sarfend with the longest pleasure pier in the world and Wigan ain't seaside.

Aguilas (Murcia) has the El Hornillo pier, built by the British to help load ore. These days it's a very quiet part of the coast, but reviewed on Trip Advisor and Hornillo Pier | All You Need In Murcia
Baldi will of course be disappointed as it's not very long, but it did have its own railway line. Also missing are the paddle steamers such as the Medway Queen, which we always used to get from The Sun Pier in Chatham to Southend in order to visit relatives at Thorpe Bay.

We used to go the other way for a similar reason to Chatham. Also went on the Royal Daffodil for cruise off the French Coast before they introduced day trips to Boulogne.

Piers are weird! They don't go anywhere they just stick out into the sea, but they are vey British. I remember summers as a kid going to places on the south coast for our holidays and I loved the piers, the candy floss, the amusement arcades, fish 'n chips, the smell of stale beer and ciggies wafting out of the mysterious places that only grownups could go into.

These days I am a sophisticated geezer and prefer a quiet beach without all that quaint British seaside charm. Before we moved here we lived in Dorset for several years and our idea of the British seaside was Chesil beach - 17 miles of beggar-all and all the mackerel you could catch - unless the youngest grandson came with us then there weren't not none never, so I had to explain to him why it was called fishing not catching.
