Summer on the beach!

Summer on the beach starts officially in Chiclana after the fair is over.

We had a wonderful time at the fair this year: great company, food, dancing, a carriage ride and fireworks on the last night.

July is here!

The school year is over and many people join us to keep up their English over the summer. The beach is starting to get crowded and all the summer beach services are available now. It is a big change from winter’s empty shores.

Lots of families! Sometimes we go for a swim during our summer walks.

Our walking schedule continues to be Fridays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. Don’t forget we sometimes have Special Events so make sure to like our Facebook page to stay up to date.

The open doors event includes a visit to the vegetable garden, workshops for children and adults and also a bar to have organic drinks and snacks.

The event seems worth a visit. If you’re interested in joining us remember we will be carpooling from Eroski or you can go on your own and meet us there.

Bring a sandwich! We may take a walk later on in Jerez.
