Beaches in Spain

Top Beaches in Spain

With the arrival
of the summer I decided to conduct an informal poll among my family and
friends to find out what are the beaches they liked the most. 
After much discussion and deliberation we were able to agree which are
our top Beaches.

Playa-de-los-Muertos Playa de los
Muertos in Carboneras Almería
considered one of the best
beaches in Spain, this beach is actually very unique as it has a
feature that makes different from any other beach
in Cabo de Gata and for that matter Spain.  Playa de
los Muertos is perfectly straight as if it had been
deliberately drawn with a ruler but even more unique is its
name.   Have you wondered why it is called the beach of the
dead?  Apparently throughout history many bodies of
pirates, sailors and merchants were washed to the shore
due to the dangerous waters, the large amount of currents
that exist in these waters have been the cause numerous of
accidents and legends.
Maspalomas, Gran Canaria
this beach offers something for
everyone from all kinds of water sports to bird watching,
sunbathing or just drinking at one of the bars along the
beach. Considered one of the best beaches of the Canary
Islands with its white sand, clear blue waters and dunes
formed by the wind Maspalomas is a natural paradise.
Playa-de-los-alemanes Playa
de los Alemanes in Zahara de los Atunes Cádiz

located in the Costa de la Luz it has
golden fine sand and turquoise waters the beach is quite and
Cala-Conta Cala
Conta in Ibiza
located west of San
Antonio after Cala Bassa it is a beautiful beach with
breathtaking views and gorgeous turquoise waters.

to get there early or come later on in the afternoon. 
The two main beaches are separated by a restaurant with
fabulous views

in Spain belonging  to

de Catedrales in Ribadeo
is a
spectacular beach when the tide is low visitors have the
opportunity to enjoy wonderful walks through the arches
the sea has slowly created on the cliff, as well as
exploring the numerous caves.  The beach can still be
enjoyed when the tide is high taking a stroll along the edge
of the cliff or drinking a caña while looking at the
fantastic views from el Restaurant de Las Catedrales
The place is a lesson on how nature once more has surpassed
man kind creating gothic arches even before man discovered

Oliva in Valencia

the Balearic Islands consisting of a hybrid of blues and
