Agua Amarga & Playa de los Muertos

Agua Amarga Beach

This morning we visited the little resort of Agua Amarga at the eastern end of the Parque Natural. The landscape is not as spectacular or beautiful as in the centre of the Parque and Agua Amarga, although a neat little village, lacks character. It has a fabulous sandy beach, though, which is ideal for families.

Thr track down to Playa de los Muertos

We then went to Playa de los Muertos, further on towards Carboneras, but still in the Natural Park. You have to walk down a stony track to the beach but there is plenty of parking by the road above.

Playa de los Muertos

It is evidently an extremely popular beach but the large sandy bay is big enough to disperse the crowds and the turquoise sea was warm and inviting.

Clumps of sea Daffodil behind the beach

All aong the shingle behind the beach flowered clumps of the beautiful white sea daffodil, its delicate scent drawn out by the hot sunshine.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
