I always felt fortunate to live near the beach, in Portugal. I only take 15-20 minutes to reach it by car. In Aveiro, in the coastland, there are three main beaches: Costa Nova, Vagueira and Praia da Barra. This weekend, the weather was excellent, and as my holidays are about to end, I went to Praia da Barra to take profit of one of my last days at the beach.
Praia da Barra means something like Breakwater Beach in English, and has this name because of its characteristic one kilometer long breakwater. Praia da Barra also has a beautiful lighthouse with pink and white stripes. There are many esplanades and restaurants near the beach, which are fabulous places to go after a dive in the ocean.
After a cold bath in the sea, I returned home, already missing that hot and sunny afternoon. No matter how many times I visit this beach, I always find it beautiful. What do you like most about going to the beach? Do you live in the coastland or near it? Let me know in the comment section!
