playa do baleo, a beach with a no nonsense attitude Jul 09, 2008
i had been to the beaches of the philippines, sweden, greece, germany, the netherlands and portugal. to be able to get to the good beaches in the philippines, one must have to pay a good amount of money to be able to access them and so is in greece. in sweden - it was the beach for the rich and famous so im basically out! hahaha. in germany and in the netherlands - even in high summer its still cold to swim and in portugal, well - it's a little too touristy.
in the beaches of the philippines, greece and portugal - the good beaches have standards, one must flaunt their good bodies, money, expensive swimwears and pretentiousness or worse, a pay beach with crappy facilities.
i am not into it and thank god, my prayers were answered! as cedeira is a hippie and bohemian litle town, people couldn't care less. there is a beach located in a small town in the municipality of cedeira, in pantin. the name of the beach is called "playa do baleo".
as the area of cedeira is full of coves and little beaches and there are less population in galicia and most of all virtually no tourists, you can choose from its hundreds of beaches and you can still celebrate your privacy.
since this area of galicia, well notably spain is hippie and bohemian, nobody cares of how you look like, people dont go here to flaunt things but to enjoy the warm sun and aquamarine water, you can wear rags or better not wear anything at all. typical no nonsense attitude as what i call this a no-nonsense beach. and most of all FREE OF CHARGE and better than beaches that you have to pay but fight your way to find a space to get settled down.
playa do baleo is a big cove surrounded by two big hills with a big wide opening in the middle where the waves of the atlantik ocean gently and in winter wildly pushes itself to the shores. at the end of the shores are full of mini coves and sharp - VERY SHARP rocks, but nevertheless the beach is still wide.
there are no shops here, you have to bring your own necessities to accomodate and entertain yourself. as usual, we went with two cars, it's a bit of long walk from the town of cedeira to pantin. it took us 20 minutes of driving through hills and mountains full of eucalyptus trees to reach playa do baleo. and i think it would take 1-2 hours of walking. but if so, the excruciating pain of walking and agony will be rewarded as the beach itself is the mouth of heaven. THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FOR FREE. because the beach is free!
*i took pics from the internet because it is much better to see from the aerial view rather than normal perspective and some pics from my friend pablo the idiot*
