Title: Beach of 2018
Post by: Jo Wissett on January 31, 2018, 03:50:29 PM
I am really hoping that we can a lovely wide beach again this Summer.  It was simply superb last year.  I used to love sitting there with a glass of wine as the waves started to glisten beautifully early evening, watching all the Greek families enjoy some precious family time, all ages together having fun.  Deep sigh...

Hi All
Has the beach been washed away?
The sea looks nearer our bench than last year!
I wanted to insert a picture but don't know how.

The size of the beach for summer visitors is generally determined by what happens in the spring. The storms can bring sand in, or take it away depending on which direction they come from ( - ask Dimitris - he's an 'expert' on these things) so I shouldn't worry about it at the moment 'cos it can literally change overnight.

Do not worry for the beach. - About 7 days ago I was in Arillas , after an overnight storm , and all the kelp on the beach was not a pretty sight. The next day, after overnight bad weather, all was OK and the beach looked very well indeed. - Now that 'ole kelp n seaweed is back but this is not a problem for all here.
Those super switched on locals will clear what nature leaves behind. - Twill be a pussycat by May.

Hoping for a lovely wide beach too, not that we tend to sit on it (not a fan of sand!!) but it's nice to look at! :-D  SO looking forward our visit in July after missing last year due to trips elsewhere.

We tend  to go down later in the day, where the rocks are to the left of the pier, just for a quick swim before a shower and drink before dinner.  Mike prefers the pool.

Any updates on the beach, as I saw some pictures on Facebook & it looked full of sea weed. Be nice to have a wide one like last year, the South was the best its been in a while
