The beach on 8th August. (near Mundaka, in the north) Not a soul in sight. OK - the sun's out of sight too, but I much prefer this kind of beach to the crowded beaches in the south. What about you?

Hmmmm...it seems quite free of pebbles too!! Yes, I prefer this kind of beach. How many on there in the nice sunny weather? Still probably not many. Another thing about the beaches in the north is that they are tidal which, for me, makes them more interesting. Our local beach is quite bland and pebbly. Still lots of room tho'.

Funnily enough there was a picture in the Daily mail today of Bournemouth beach and there were thousands on it catching probably the last opportunity of the summer. They were packed like a tin of sardines!!:eek:

Ha ha:D

But what's it like in the winter Jo? Is it quieter (and to my way of thinking) nicer?

I realise, especially to the younger crowd, a crowded beach to some is just great - more people more action, but I've never enjoyed people packed places

I don't think there are ever a lot of people on it as you say Chica.

I thought the weather in England was terrible at the moment. It was a few days ago anyway when I was there. We went to Sand Point, Weston super Mare and took a similar photo of a deserted beach. The story of my summer...!

Mojacar is the nearest touristy beach to us and and quite popular with the Spanish so in August it's absolutely bouncin'. We first went there in January and it was like a ghost town. With a bit of winter sun it was a lovely walk along the beach to Garrucha ....... wouldn't like to attempt it just now though:D

Damn Pesky Wesky its so empty in those parts :alien: ..ima show you Benicasim here in castellon..always crowded except furing la siesta..ussually just young people soaking the sun and drinking...i like it during those hours real chill..
Glad you enjoy your beach rotarise. I must admit it does look pretty empty. I wonder if it's due to the total lack of sun and the red flags that are probably flying just out of the picture...

That's an unusual name, PW - Mundaka. Wonder what its origins are?

Tally.xx
Dunno, but it's Basque. It's between San Seb. and Bilbao. This isn't Mundaka it's self. Mundaka and other villages along there are surfing places. Apparently, it's one of the best places to surf in the world

We have quite a few nice beaches around the Mar Menor but this time of year they are packed. What we normally do is either go across the mountains to a beach at calblanque on the med which is much quieter, or get the boat out and go to one of the islands in the middle of the Mar Menor. All the tourist can do is look and wonder what is on the islands so it much quieter.

Yep a boat too. Only a little one though. I really wanted one and as my OH has a horse it was only fair. Well thats my story and I´m sticking to it ;)
We were actually going to go to the beach this afternoon as we dont have any appointments today, but OH doesn´t fancy it:rolleyes:.

Still we have been invited to a friends for a paella tonight so thats something to look forward too.
We were going to go to the Tomatina in Bunol tomorrow but OH has made an apponitment I can´t avoid. It´s a shame as I have wanted to go since moving here but its not going to happen this year.

Also another one is the giant water fight on Monday at Hondon de Las Frailes which we will be going to. The whole village has a massive water fight. All the locals with houses fronting the streets throw buckets of water over everyone and you all just play :D
