To the west, Bologna is protected by some truly impressive dunes. And if you are a fan of water based activities, Bologna is surely the ideal place for you.

Who said that there can be no sea beaches without a sea? Gulpiyuri beach is a unique beach which is actually a sinkhole which is flooded. It lies between the cities of Santander and Gijon but its location is not exactly on the coast. This unusual place is about 100 meters from the Bay of Biscay, with which is connected through a network of underground caves.

So here you can swim in the sea without seeing it. Gulpiyuri is about 40 meters long, is surrounded by rocks and forms a kind of triangle, shaping a wonder of nature. If you want a truly remarkable beach experience, you should visit this beach.

Genoese beach, Almería , Andalucía

Cala de Sa Calobra, Palma de Mallorca

Cala de Sa Calobra

Although it is well known, the Cala de Sa Calobra beach is still extraordinary. Sa Calobra Bay is an adventure in itself. First, it is not a place that is easy to reach: either you go there by boat or through a steep and winding road not suitable for those who get dizzy or suffer from vertigo.

Once you are there, you will have two small beaches to choose from. One of the beaches is located just outside the small town of Sa Calobra.
