L’Ampolla, Sun, Sea, & Sand Cycling

  • Who would not want to spend time in a shimmering seascape?
  • Who would not want to spend time with Flamingos?
  • And who would not want to try cycling on sand?

It was a yes to all three questions, which is how we came to be in this wondrous bay for a few nights.

Nestling between Barcelona and Valencia is L’Ampolla

It is the place for a quiet winter stop over. A water-world that draws you in. The sheer beauty of the bay with it’s pretty and fairly sophisticated little town, long sandy beach and, just inland, lagoons is breath taking. The more we looked, the more we saw and the more we saw, the more we liked.

Sadly as we arrived the Covid19 lockdown was about to be confirmed by the president. We had one day on site, at the most; possibly, if we were lucky, two nights. As things turned out, we made the most of our one whole day by exploring the area on our mountain bikes, only to get back to the campsite to be told that we would have to leave by midday the following day.

We will definitely return to this magical bay.
