This morning I completed some business in Almeria early so I drove down to the bottom of the Avenida del Mediterraneo to have a look at El Zapillo, the City’s beach.
I had not been to El Zapillo for over 20 years and marveled at the transformation. Alongside the beach runs a palm lined promenade behind which are green areas where a lovely old boat was laid up.
It was before 1000, the beach was spotless and the Mediterranean calm. People were out taking their early morning exercise and fishermen were working at their boats.
I expect at weekends it is extremely busy here but midweek in May it looked idyllic.
