We decided to take a day trip and drive over to the eastern coast of Spain. It took us less than an hour and we were strolling along the beaches of Garrucha. It had been very dry in the area around Albox, but as soon as we got to the coast we could really feel the increase in humidity. I definitely felt like I was back in Florida!
Garrucha is a fishing village and is a popular vacation spot for the locals. There were a lot of bars and restaurants along the promenade but it was definitely not as commercialized as we might have expected a beach village to be. The beach was very pretty.
There were wooden boardwalks that connected the shore and the promenade. We walked down and stuck our feet in the Mediterranean Sea!
We continued walking north to the next town of Vera, where the beaches were just as pretty and we could see the mountains in the distance.
We got a kick out of the signs that were posted explaining all of the beach rules.
From here we decided to head south to Mojacar.
