Some views of our beach during the windy and stormy weather from the last days of 2017. the temperature was up to 15 degrees and the water up to 18 . The rare direct west wind creates great waves than can be ideal for some of the local boys and girls who are trying to harnes their power with their surfboards.
Arillas beach like you have never seen it before at this time of the year. Our beach has kept it;s size breaking all reccords from at least the last 20 years. there are some pictures to see how it looks today the 5th November 2018.
An Aerial beach report from Arillas on 15th August at 09:0 in the morning with the help of our friend Christopher. The sandy beach is one of the Best we have seen over the last 20 years. It is ideal for families with kids and for those looking for a quiet type of holiday. The beach front establishments are offering drinks and snacks on their sunbeds and they are responsible for looking after the beach too. However, it never seems overcrowded as the are large spaces of sand along the 3Km of sandy beach.
The Arillas community is bringing in to the area a “spiritual" group of volunteers that will keep the place clean and tidy all year round. The groups of these monks from Asia will be living in Arillas for the next few years teaching the zen and zin to the locals. Their main job will be to help the community gain a better understanding of the life in an economical crisis. Today they started cleaning the beach and every sunday they will be there to help in any practical public actions like, streaming, pruning, painting, building and keeping our beach and other areas of Arillas Clean from the rubbish that our tourists and locals live behind them.
Clean Monday (KATHARI DEFTERA) is the beginning of the great Lent before the Greek Easter.
Because Clean Monday is also traditionaly considered to mark the first day of spring, we tend to celebrate it with picnics or going out at a local taverna. These activites are called 'koulouma'.
Traditional foods include olives, octopus, and shrimp. In addition to picnics, outdoor activities used to celebrate the day include flying kites, dancing, music, etc.
There were not only kites flying but also a paramotor and a dellta-plane. !
In Arillas Beach the winter swimmers met today to celebrate their hobby , the fans of winter swimming gather on the beautiful beach of Arillas , where they cut the New Year cake of their (unofficial) club. that was an informal meeting from the local people who dare to swim all year round. we do hope that this will be repeated every year on a specific day by all-weather conditions.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year, From all the people of Arillas. We hope you and your families are all well!! thank you for being such good friends with Arillas.
See you Soon!!
