Summer Notes - Fornells (Begur)
By Natalia Escaño on
Pine trees, cliffs, hidden coves, crystalline water and steep coast make this area
a very special and unique place in Spain.
Platja Fonda managed to keep its primitive purity
that you can rarely find in any other places of Costa Brava.
It is not a real natural pool made of water from the sea but it does not matter, it is almost one. It is one of the most beautiful corners of the Costa Brava and we all agree with that.
You can find that unique place between the small port of Fornells and Platja Fonda.
for the residential area of Es Cau and unique use of its residents.
The water is crystal clear !
The traditional dish from the area, without any doubts, is the PEIX DE ROCA, known for being tastier and of high quality. Each spring, they celebrate the gastronomy of the area. A selection of restaurants offers special tasting menu with dishes made of PEIX DE ROCA. In Begur, the gastronomy reflects the natural wealth of an area opened to the Mediterranean sea, where you can find any kind of fish and seafood but also a selection of fruits and vegetables.

Surf in CornwallFull post
Shooting coastal images on film, for me, there is no better medium than dated old film to capture the essence of what makes surfing in Cornwall so special.
A New TraditionFull post
Since arriving in Byron Bay last November, we’ve settled into a fairly predictable pattern. Saturdays are crêpe days and Sundays are American style, ‘fat’ pancakes.
Tenerife. European’s answer to HawaiiFull post
We didn´t expect such a rich lansdcape, the different types of rock, colours, shapes, the solid lava, the unique flora, reptiles, etc. It all made it a special place to remember. Again we couldn’t help comparing it with another part of Kauai, the Waimea Canyon, both have such a big topographycal and climatological contrast with the rest of the island that make them so remarkable and unique.
