Beach under the winter sun. It is this happy houseband‘s favorite babysitter. And what better place for our young boys to combine freeplay in three languages (Polish, English and Spanish) with getting some winter sun tan than here in the Costa de la Luz.
In the first few days of March, we headed off to explore a new beach: Playa de la Puntilla in El Puerto de Santa Maria in the bay of Cadiz. It was only a bit over 15 minutes drive from Jerez and it turned out that we had been here before by train and on foot shortly after our arrival two years ago.
It was quite hot at about 19 degrees with that strong Andalucian sun shining through that baby blue winter sky. So, the boys quickly shed most of their clothes.
Can’t get to the beach? So we bring it to you in this video.
Very close to the beach is a big green space overlooking the beach and the bay–an ecological park made up of pine trees and dunes (Pinares y Dunas de San Anton) with shaded picnic areas. A camping site sits about 200 meters (650 feet) from the shoreline. There are also two playgrounds and 3 chiringuitos (beach bars). Paved walkway along the shore makes for easy walk, bicycles, etc.
What do you prefer? Beach in the winter? Or the summer?
