Spain's Top 10: Freshwater Oases
29 June 2019 @ 21:27

I thought it would be interesting to move a little inland.... When it comes to Spain everyone seems to picture a sandy beach on some coastal resort but infact I have to say that I have had some of my greatest moments in Spain, inland at many of the country's idyllic fresh water spots. Lagunas de Ruidera was a wonderful discovery many years back. What is so fantastic about these places is the crystalline fresh water, many of them are actually born from natural springs. The water is incredibly refreshing as opposed to the hot bath water which can be found on the Mediterranean coast during the summer.

So if you fancy a change, this is a wonderful alternative and you probably won't have to fight to find a spot to lay down your towel! The word oasis comes to mind when I see them as in many occasions all that can be seen around them is arid land and dry pine forests. Some of these places also allow water sports and fresh water fishing so also an great opportunity to keep yourself busy.

 

These are 10 of the top places around the country, naturally there are so many, so feel free to posta comment if you know of any more wonderful freshwater oases...
