It’s time for some beaches now and one of the most famous sights of Montenegro – Sveti Stefan. First up we head to gorgeous Crvena Glavija beach that has a perfect view of Sveti Stefan island and the beach is nearly empty when we arrive #bliss. We’re intrigued by this abandoned beach bar on Crvina Glavica beach. Such a prime positionContinue reading “Sveti Stefan”
Ulcinj is the most Southern town in Montenegro, on the border of Albania. It is one of the oldest settlements in the Adriatic coast and was founded in 5th century BC. We visited on one of the hottest days so far, making it a very uncomfortable experience! The beach is heaving with oiled up sunseekers.Continue reading “Ulcinj”
With barely a week back at work we’re back in the air and off again!! This time it’s to the popular beach hotpot of Majorca. We’re staying in the quiet little suburb of More Vermell close to Alcudia. Hotel More is our home for the next 10 days – well situated but not served withContinue reading “Majorca”
I’m going back to Tenerife for the first time in 24 years. This time I’m avoiding the tourist traps of Playa de les America and seeking out the roads less traveled. We’re starting in Santa Cruz the capital of the island. From here we hop on the tram to visit the UNESCO world heritage cityContinue reading “Tenerife 2022”
There’s not much in the way of boat trips from Alicante but you can visit the tiny fishing village of Tabarca. So off we float – ready to conquer the waves yet again (PSA there are no waves – it is flat calm) Tabarca is the largest island in the Valencian Community, and the smallestContinue reading “Tiny Tabarca”
It wouldn’t be a visit to the Costa Blanca without at least one trip to the capital of mass tourism that is Benidorm! In 1993 Benidorm town hall officially commemorated the first hundred years of tourism in the town. So although the town is synonymous these days with cheap (some might say tacky) package holidaysContinue reading “Benidorm”
While we wait for the old town of Alonissos to wake up, we pop to a nearby beach. This rather disturbing shack proclaims that it is actually a nudist beach!
A bit of a grey day on Alonnisos as we visit Leftos Gialos beach. This white-pebble beach 7km northeast of Patitiri has a few summer tavernas and sun loungers and is framed by headlands thick with pine forests.
On to the third of our Greek islands now. The smallest of the three on our island hoping itinerary – Alonissos. There’s lots more pebble beaches to explore plus we quickly stop off at Steni Vala harbour to check out the bobbing boats.
Skopolos has enchanting little beaches and coves around every bend and corner and the tiny Glifoneri beach is no exception. The tiny little cove is at the bottom of a steep hill, with a handful of houses.
