A comprehensive database of Spanish beaches
Although there are those who travel to Spain to enjoy its superlative culture and gastronomy, many trip goers are looking only for cheap alcohol (namely, the refreshing and healthy sangría) and sunny beaches, two things that are quantitatively abundant.
iPlaya focuses on the latter, including a huge database of more than 2,000 beaches, certainly enough yet still leaving some room to ask local natives about their secret hideouts. Accordingly, it adds weather forecasts and, when needed, tide info. Other relevant info includes wind conditions and water temperature, which is great if you're into surfing, wind-surfing, kite-surfing, parachute-surfing, or any other kind of sea sport or sport-to-be.
Therefore, no matter if you are only going to enjoy the ancient art of lizarding (learn some Spanish slang: "lagartear" means to sunbathe like a lizard) or whatever else, this app is pretty useful, especially for its Maps integration. Every beach is displayed along with some pics (taken from Google/images, no big deal here). More info or comments would have been appreciated. The UI, though improvable, is suitable even for below average users.
Anyway, it's free and ad-supported. Get on with it.
With a totally redesigned user interface, the app features more than 2000 Spanish beaches, helping you find them on a map.
Weather forecast information includes sky conditions, swell, wind, water temperature, UV index, tides, etc. You can also check sunrise and sunset times. Forecasts are provided by the Spanish Meteorological Agency, AEMET.
Explore nearby beaches. Getting there is a piece of cake: in the forecast page you’ll see a map with the location of the beach.
If you prefer, you can search the name of a beach, town or province.
Get iPlaya now and enjoy your holidays!
