I’ve wanted to go there for a long time, and finally this year I was able to accomplish my dream.
Months before, I booked my ticket on the internet with the shipping company Mardeons for the journey between Vigo and Cies Islands, since there are a limited number of places a day. The journey lasts about 45 minutes.
When you get there you basically have all day to get lost on the island. I went in the summer and there were too many people, and everyone walked towards the lighthouse. Anyway, it was worth visiting this beautiful place.
We took some sandwiches to eat there, although in the boat there is a bar where you can buy sandwiches, drinks, ice creams, etc. I liked best Rodas Beach, impressive! No wonder it was named the best beach in the world in 2007. The water was extremely cold, but we went in for a swim anyways.
An authentic surprise and a completely essential stop if you’re traveling along the White Coast. It’s not everyday you find a place like this. A tiny island that has been populated for hundreds of years. A refuge where the habitants still conserve their ancestral Italian last names, as they historically came from there and decided to stay on the tiny island.
You can only access the island by boat. It's really is worth taking the ferry from the nearby Santa Pola. Once there, you can walk around the precious streets, have a snack or drink from one of the many stands in the summer, and take a dip in the sea! The beaches aren’t over crowded, but be careful of the wind!
The journey from Lanzarote to La Graciosa takes about 25 minutes, and a lifetime of memories. Those ve have been there know that it is a treasure that few have shared.
It has dream beaches, a few bars and lots and lots of sand. The only towns are Caleta de Sebo and Pedro Barba, and both are fishing towns. You can camp, dive, cycle, hike, observe birds, be in the beach, trek…
Legend has it that a sick man was abandoned on this island and, after some time, became completely cured by the rich sludge. On that place a resort was built in the midst of a pine forest. In summer it loses some of its charm by excess visitors, at other times of year you can enjoy a romantic and decadent atmosphere.

Benidorm is an important tourist destination on the Mediterranean Sea, where there’s a mix between great relaxing beaches and great nightlife. It has a lovely bay. Its microclimate insures great weather year round. It’s an important tourist destination, and you should enjoy and live it once in a while.
It is an island where sea wolfs used to live; this is where the name comes from.
Island of Lobos (wolfs): time stops, the blue of the sea is special, the light floods it all. The sea surrounds it with a veil of foam. We were intrepid explorers for one day, curious naturalists that analyzed every corner.
If you go to Menorca, you can’t forget to visit Punta Nati, located only a few kilometers from Ciutadella and possessing some of the best views of the north of the island.
I’d recommend going at sunset and enjoying one of the most spectacular light shows on the island. Prepare a picnic basket and enjoy. You can’t miss it!
In the middle of the Costa Brava is a place called "Illes Medes", a nature reserve with its own unique beauty. You must go by boat, the water is crystal clear and the fish are calm because there is no fishing allowed, due to the fact that it is a nature reserve. Recommended.
We left at 8 in the morning in a catamaran and three hours later we were at the island. As it's a protected environment, they let you see, but not touch. They have everything very well controlled, but it's a marvelous place and is worth the trip. The scuba diving is exceptional, with a large variety of sea planes.
In the west coast of the island of Fuerteaventura I discover the small locality of Betancuria which, presided by its church-cathedral, was the ancient capital of the island until 1834. Its name comes from the French founder Bethencourt, who turned it into the political, administrative and religious center of the island in the 15th century.
The church-cathedral of Santa María de Betancuria is its most important monument. The bell tower and the columns preserve some of the remains of the primitive construction using a Gothic-Norman style. The visit to the museums of sacred art and the archeological one are very interesting, both with historic collections of great value. The smallest municipality of the island, with just 800 inhabitants, will delight the traveler who discovers it.
Mouro Island, in the autonomous community of Cantabria, is located right at the entrance of Santander Bay, opposite the Magdalena Peninsula. It is a very small and rocky island of only 1.7 hectares. It is of importance because on the highest part of the island is one of the nine lighthouses of Cantabria, Mouro Island lighthouse. The small island belongs to Santander and you can see it from the Bay of Santander, the Magdalena Peninsula and the Trasmiera coast, which is formed by the Somo and Loredo beaches. The island had its own place in history because during the War of Independence, it helped the British (who were then allied with the Spanish) keep the French away from the coast.
San Nicolas Island, also known as Garraitz, is one of the things that makes Lekeitio one of the nicest places I have ever been to. Located not far from the shore, is accessible on foot at low tide from boardwalk above, but it is slippy and you have to be careful. You also have to be careful with the tide, specially if you are unsure of how the tides work, is a very common fault tourists make. It can also be dangerous to swim as there are many rocks around. There are many legends about the island, one of which states that in ancient times, leprosy patients were marginalized and kept here in a monastery. Today there is only a shepherd with his goats and many rabbits. There is also currently an exhibition of art of a Basque sculptor. For me, it has become a tradition to climb up every year at least once to the lookout from the top of the island. The views are spectacular.
