Beach of Altafulla

When I went to Barcelona this summer, I made a little excursion south, in the direction Tarragona, to visit some friends living in Altafulla, small town on the Costa Daurada. It's about 100 km south from Barcelona and easy to go there with the coastal highway. You'll go out at the exit "Torredembarra/Altafulla", then follow the signs to Altafulla. In the city, follow the direction of the "roman ruins" and after "Playa de Altafulla". It's a great and wide sand beach and the beautiful blue/turquoise color of the sea gives you immediately a big smile! :)

The water isn’t very deep until an artificial little island of rocks with a little lighthouse on it… but on the other side it becomes much deeper and very interesting for diving and fish observation. I couldn’t resist the temptation to take my Horizon with me on this little island, even I could walk with my Horizon secure above my head and my chest in the water….. it didn’t fall in the water and so I could make these cool images of the sea and the beach of Altafulla, but looking from the sea! :)) At my return on the beach, I saw this very cute dog coming out of the water at the same time, I couldn’t miss this picture… ;) So, if you’re in this area, just have a look at this beach.
