"¿A la playa se va por aquí?"

Reviewed by / Apr 24, 2014

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.

    Es bastante útil, pero sería muy interesante si además incluyera información sobre el nivel de la marea o el color de la bandera

    Muy buena app. Sería genial si incluyese también nudos y dirección del viento.

    Funciona muy bien en Desire. Interfaz poco intuitiva, mejorable.
