    iPlaya: beach weather's review

    Published: 2014-04-24, by Peter Warrior.

    A comprehensive database of Spanish beaches

    • Free, ad-supported
    • Suited for non-savvy users
    • It needs additional info

    "¿A la playa se va por aquí?"

    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.

    Used to be great for the tides but times no longer make any sense

    What I truly miss is flag status on the beach... It would be perfect. Some of predictions are very approximate. F.ex. I just had been at the beach with red flag, strong wind, and then I see just moderate wind and moderate waves...
