A seaside resort in Spain. I think that’s all I need to say for you to conjure up a little piece of paradise that we can refer to here as Peniscola.
The beach itself is the epitome of a seaside resort. There are water sport activities, cafes, and gift shops.
The sand and water are a summertime playground, and the town situated on a rock off the coast is a beautiful vista for sunbathers.
The town itself is a quaint maze of steep, cobbled streets and a 13th-century castle with panoramic views of the coast and Artillery Park, full of lavender and olive trees. What caught my eye was all the little attention to detail, like these artistic tiles decorating the bottoms of the balconies. It’s something an artist would do. I’d never think of this myself.
Peniscola is located near Valencia, about two hours south of Barcelona. It’s definitely the place I’d choose for a beach getaway in Spain.
