The fruity and fresh flavor of Viña Esmeralda, an organic and vegan-certified white wine, pairs very well with the smell of saltpeter, the caress of the sun, the view of turquoise waters and golden sand, the sound of the waves lapping the shore. An experience that is enjoyed with the five senses and that we propose to live in wonderful coves and beaches that dot the Spanish Mediterranean, from Cap de Creu, in the north of the peninsula, to the border that is Tarifa, where the Mare Nostrum looks out over the Gates of the Atlantic Many are part of protected natural areas, are restricted to traffic and require visitors to walk to reach them. Compared to other destinations more crowded with tourists in July and August, there are still alternatives where you can escape and find your own space where you can uncork a good bottle of Viña Esmeralda, recognized with the gold medal for best white wine at the Tastavins Penedès competition, and continue dreaming in front of the sea. Here are some infallible ideas. –Cap de Creus (Girona): Dalí’s fantasy come true In a handkerchief of 11 kilometres, some of the most beautiful beaches in Spain are concentrated. Cala Culip, Cala Prona, Cala Playera, Cala Culleró… A spectacle of sea and geology to the north of the Costa Brava, in Cap de Creus, extension of the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean, with natural park status (and restricted access to traffic). Until October 1st). The cooler with the bottle of Viña Esmeralda can be placed in the backpack, to get to know these wonderful landscapes from land or on the deck of one of the boats that are rented, to enjoy them from the sea. You can also pair Viña Esmeralda with good fresh fish from the fish market at the Monterrey restaurant (Port de la Selva) or eat at Es Baluard, in the old Cadaqués wall and with views of its bay. Within its municipal area is Portlligat, where the house in which Dalí lived stands, now converted into a museum. –Sitges: beaches and good vibes Garraf Park (Barcelona), a protected natural area, overlooks the sea through the homonymous beach, with an unmistakable silhouette thanks to the mountains that escort it and its 33 white-painted fishermen’s houses and green. The traveler can get a bottle of Viña Esmeralda here (warning: it is quite crowded during the summer) or in other sandy areas of the municipality of Sitges: Sant Sebastià, where the locals go, very close to the center, and with beautiful views of the historic quarter, or La Fragata, just below the church of Santa Tecla and San Bartomeu, next to the yacht club, the favorite for sports activities. Sitges still retains its charisma of a modern town half an hour’s drive from Barcelona. No one like her to mix, with a very good vibe, family tourism with an international LGTBI atmosphere; gastronomy –Le patio, Costa Dorada, Komokieras– with a party. –Ibiza: Cala Saladeta, a paradise 7 minutes from the party A Cala Saladeta, shallow sandy bottom, turquoise waters, is accessed through a path between the rocks from Cala Salada, its busier older sister, which is arrives by bus (cars are left in a farther parking lot). Its landscape is an invitation to spend the day well stocked with groceries (not forgetting a very cool bottle of Viña Esmeralda), especially in June and September, when the heat is hot but the vacationers have not yet arrived en masse (or have already left). ). At the base of the rocky cliff that separates both coves, fishermen’s huts (or dry dock) were built. In seven minutes by taxi, in about 25 by ferry or in about 50 on foot, the traveler is planted from Cala Salada to Sant Antoni de Portmany, with its Sunset Strip (promenade with sunset views), where you can enjoy, they say, the best sunsets on the island; with symbols such as Café del Mar (with its beach club Café del Mar); and with lots and lots of partying in the West End. –Menorca: the Camí de Cavalls with sunset at the Cova d’en Xoroi Minorcans are proud to have recovered and opened to the public their historic Camí de Cavalls (the Way of the Horses): a route of 185 kilometers, divided into 20 sections to do on foot or by bicycle, which surrounds the entire Menorca and allows you to discover its coast inch by inch. Discovering wonders worth toasting with a Viña Esmeralda, such as the Turqueta, Macarella and Macarelleta coves, Pregonda, Mitjana or Galdana. Or arriving at the popular beach of Cala en Porter (a good option when traveling with children), close to one of the largest urbanizations on the south coast of the Balearic island, the starting point of a kayak route to explore the cavities that the sea has pierced the calcareous rocks. Here stands the natural cave of Xoroi, carved into the cliff by the waves and tides. Enabled as a daytime cocktail bar and nightclub, it is accessed by vertiginous stairs and is recommended for a drink at the magic hour of sunset. –Alicante: Isla de Tabarca, a respite from the hustle and bustle Tabarca, the only inhabited island in the Valencian Community, offers a picturesque fishing port, walls declared a Historic Artistic Site and Site of Cultural Interest, a pleasant urban center for walking, a museum , a boutique hotel, and coves and beaches with transparent waters where you can enjoy a snack washed down with a very fresh white Viña Esmeralda. You can also eat in restaurants such as Tere or Casa Glòria, among others, and taste their traditional tabarquino stew. The island, located 11 nautical miles off the city of Alicante, about 8 kilometers from Cape Santa Pola, allows you to contemplate, from a distance, one of the most urbanized parts of the Mediterranean coast. It is actually a tiny archipelago formed, in addition to Tabarca, by the islets of La Cantera, La Galera and La Nao. There is a regular ferry line that connects it from the port of Santa Pola; There are also boats leaving from Alicante, Benidorm or Torrevieja. –Murcia: the virgin coastline of the Calnegre and Cabo Cope Regional Park The Calnegre and Cabo Cope Regional Park, on the shores of the Mediterranean, between Lorca and Águilas, treasures the last virgin beaches of the Region of Murcia. Between Puntas de Calnegre, belonging to the municipality of Lorca, and Cabo Cope, in Águilas, coves not too well known, vestiges of what this coast was like before the arrival of brick, there are the beaches of Baño de las Mujeres, Siscal, of La Galera, of the Sombrerico. Any of them invites you to lunch with a bottle of Viña Esmeralda included, although in the town of Puntas de Calnegre there are small restaurants practically on the sand, and in summer the El Líos beach bar opens in Calnegre cove, where you reserve WhatsApp. Already in Águilas, with a stop to eat at El Faro, Bartolo or La Veleta, appear the so-called Cuatro Calas, protected landscape, Site of Community Interest and part of the Natura 2000 network: Calarreona, la Higuerica, La Carolina and los Cocedores (among Águilas, in Murcia, and Pulpí, in Almería). –Almería: a necklace of pearls between Genoveses and Cala del Carbón Between Genoveses beach and Cala Carbón, in the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park, a necklace of wonderful coves unfolds –de los Amarillos, Príncipe, Chica del Barronal–, plus the paradisiacal beach of Mónsul. They are separated from each other by volcanic rock cliffs, with spectacular views. Saving them is the most complicated part of a circular route that runs through them, and in which it is advisable to spend the whole day, to enjoy in a relaxed way; The day will pass, thus, between walks, baths and the occasional snack, with a glass of Viña Esmeralda, by the sea. Or later, more comfortably, at the Mediterráneo (Cabo de Gata), La Palma (Las Negras) or Arrocería Sotavento (Las Negras) restaurants. Also recommendable is a stop in San José, very set in summer, and with a huge gastronomic offer to choose from, where the Tentenpié restaurant stands out. About 14 kilometers away is the bohemian and modern Rodalquilar, with its impressive Playazo. Both towns belong to the municipality of Níjar. –Tarifa (Cádiz): Punta Paloma, a refuge facing Levante When the Levante wind picks up in Tarifa, there is no doubt: the best refuge is Punta Paloma, which is accessed by a winding road between a dune and a pine forest. Its transparent water and fine sand add the attraction of relative tranquility, at least by Cadiz summer standards. Sooner or later, the traveler can jump the imposing dune that marks the border with the adjoining Valdevaqueros, an emblematic sandbank for kitesurfing where, among surfing beach bars, rises the Hotel Hurricane, an institution with a garden with palm trees like Hollywood in the golden age where you can taste a salad buffet accompanied by a very cold Viña Esmeralda. Or keep a bottle of Viña Esmeralda in the picnic cooler and head to the other side on a pleasant route of about 9 kilometers, between pine and juniper groves, which leads, cove by cove, to a coastal jewel: Bolonia. Presided over by another imposing dune of white sand, at the end that touches Punta Paloma, it hides some natural pools where you can also give your skin a bath with purifying mud. To eat in Bologna, two classics: Las Rejas -with its shrimp pancakes, cuttlefish croquettes and tuna with onions- and the Otero restaurant founded almost 65 years ago and which maintains its commitment to local products. The sunset, always with Viña Esmeralda, from the slopes next to the beach of the Serenade or Sunset beach bars. Follow us on Instagram: @vinaesmeralda
