There are many ways to enjoy your summer holidays in Spain and although all of them will lead you to the conclusion, that this country is wonderful, I think we will agree that you should feel and hear the waves of the sea at least once in your summer vacation.
Speaking of my own experience, I have a British family and every summer that they come to visit, it’s very easy to know that what they want is a good day of sun, beach and paella. And since I’m their host, I know exactly what to do.
There is nothing like waking up near the sea, with the sound of the waves and a cool breeze. Buy some delicious “churros” with chocolate for breakfast, and go for a nice morning swim at the beach (in my case, since I’m from Murcia, my favourite place to go would be La Manga, being able to go for a swim in the “Mar Menor” or in the Mediterranean Sea).
After a few hours of leisure and relaxation, while lying on a sunbed, well protected from the sun (as you know, always use sunscreen), and taking a last minute swim which is more than refreshing, we get to the key moment of the day. It’s time for lunch. And … What’s better than having a delicious PAELLA at a beach hut bar? Because you really CAN’T have a perfect summer day without a paella.
It is true that not all beach hut bars can cook a great paella, so you should make some research about where to go for the meal. But if you find the ideal place, I can assure you that you will be having the perfect Spanish summer day. Because this is not just about the paella. It’s also about feeling the joyful and fun atmosphere while eating at the beach in summer in Spain, near the sea. I can assure you, it’s a unique feeling.
At this point, if my family isn’t still in love with Spain (which is impossible, because they fell in love right after their first step outside the plane), I really don’t know what else to do.
After resting for a bit, cooling off in the water and having a great time with the family, comes one of the most beautiful moments of the day, the sunset on the beach.
These sunsets will leave you amazed. An indescribable moment, which you can enjoy either going for a walk or sitting in a terrace. But whatever you do, feel it. Enjoy it. An extraordinary landscape that this country offers you.
All these are experiences that surely many of you will have already lived. Now there’s only left to say that if you are familiar with this plan, please keep enjoying it, because we are so lucky to be able to live it every summer. And those who have not experienced it yet, leave whatever you are doing and start planning your next vacation, because once you try it, you will feel the need to repeat it every summer from now on.
Finally, I just want to say that this year my family went back to Scotland a bit happier, since they have discovered the Spain’s FUN’s paella mix. They will be able to put colour in the grey winter Scottish days, cooking their own paella, in a very easy and fun way, and thus relive those summer days until their next holidays.
