Virgin Cabo de Gata Beach

Cabo de Gata BeachAlmeriais, perhaps, one of the most neglected and remote provinces of Spain, located beyond the usual tourist routes and it hides an amazing cultural heritage, ecological richness and beautiful scenery. Beaches here are not so famous as glamorous resort Las Salinas Beach in Ibiza. But nature in Almeriais is definitively worth visiting.
The most amazing place here is the natural park of Cabo de Gata, located about 17 km from Almeria. This nature reserve is one of the driest areas in Europe and one of the few regions of the continent, of volcanic origin. Once you are here you should also visit the Sierra de Cabrera, a small town of Carboneras and San Andres Island, which the Andalusian Government declared a natural monument. At the same time, the park has a stunning variety of flora and fauna, as it is effected by the Mediterranean and North Africa, which provides the place with the unique microclimate: the average summer temperature here is about 25C and in the winter the temperature doesn’t get below average of 12-15C. This temperate climate is not only very healthy, but also allows people to be open and welcoming. Another feature of the weather Almeria is a breeze: the average number of windy days is 307 per year, ideal for water sports.



Majestic oasis on Playa de Galpiyuri Beach

Playa de Galpiyuri BeachAs in our understanding beach is usually connected with sea or other source of water that can be seen, and therefore majority of people love to spend time on the beach looking at the endless horizon, enjoying the views and thinking about the infinity of life and waters. Really deep impressions one can get while visiting the longest in the world Coxs Bazar Beach or amazing Malta Golden Bay. Though Playa de Galpiyuri is a unique place in this sense, it is a beach without the sea and even without any other visible sources of water.

Playa de Galpiyuri translates from Spanish as Galpiyuri Beach. It is a small beach in the shape of a seashell, located in the middle of grassy meadows near Llanes, a small town in the northern part of the central coast of Spain. The beach is not big and is located about 100 meters from the sea and it would seem to have no possible connections with it. But it is actually linked with the sea through a network of old underground caves, through which the water runs and feeds this small bay. Therefore it is truly a beach without the sea, well, without a visible sea, as the source of the water is still the located nearby sea. 



Precious jewels of Papakolea Beach

Papakolea BeachBeach "Papakolea" also known as the "Green Sand Beach" and the beach "Mahan," is one of the few beaches in the world, which is covered with sand that has an olive – green color. Beach from different angles is covered with cliffs and only one side has an access to the ocean.Papakolea Beach is not nearly as comfortable as Maho Beach or Malta Golden Bay. But green jewels of sand are definitively worth visiting this beautiful place.

Green shade of the sand is reached by the small beryl gemstones that are usually used in jewelry. Chrysolite is a golden-green semi-precious stone, which is also called peridot for the jewelry; it consists of a silicate of magnesium and iron. And depending on the ratio of these two elements the rock can have different shades of green: pistachio, herb, olive, brown, gold, yellow, etc. If you look at the beach from a distance, it appears green, but if you get closer, you will notice that it becomes an olive-gold. These green stones were formed as a result of volcanic activity, as chrysolite inclusions are found in the rocks surrounding this strange beach.
