The paper today reported that this is the hottest start to June recorded in Almeria this century. Temperatures are rising above 30C so it was off to the beach this morning.
We decided to visit Cala del Plomo for a change. This beach is clearly signposted on the Fernán Pérez – Agua Amarga road.
The track to the beach is about 7km but it is easily negotiated in an ordinary vehicle and you can park right beside the beach. Its remoteness but accessibility make it popular with campers seeking to avoid the charges of official sites.
The beach is of fine sand which gently shelves out to sea.
There is always a little swell here which makes swimming fun and the volcanic rocks form interesting shapes in the cliffs around.
There were quite a few there today enjoying the warm weather.
As usual in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata the bathers were a mix of the fully clothed, semi clothed and naked.
