|Hooray, it's May! - and Spring/Summer has
come to VP
UK: wet autumn, cold winter, late spring, Spain: cold and
wet winter, late spring
The ultimate culprit may be Global Warming but more directly
the weather people say it's all to do with the Jetstream being
much further south this last winter than it normally is. The
result has been that the UK had one of its longest and coldest
winters and Spain had one more like Britain's usual winter with
a succession of Atlantic depressions, which would normally have
been much further north, sweeping across the Iberian peninsula.
Even this week many places in Spain had snow in late April -
pretty unusual - and Andalucia's water reserviors are just about
full - quite a contrast to just a few years ago when southern
Spain was in water crisis. As usual, Vera Playa, at the south-eastern
corner of Spain and on the Mediterranean, has been spared the
worst of the unusually bad weather but nevertheless late April,
in particular, has been unlike previous years when it is nearly
the start of the "dawn to dusk sunshine every day"
normal stable summer weather but this year it has been unsettled
with some quite cold days (highs of around 13 to 19), rain,
wind and stormy seas interspersed with warm sunny days with
highs around 25 to 27. Quite a mixture!
May has started well, with May Day itself
having dawn to dusk sunshine, little in the way of breeze and
a high of over 27C - much more what we expect at Vera Playa.
And 2 May is on the same lines, albeit with some cloud from
time to time, but hopefully nothing worse.

|April storm wreaks havoc on
Beach amenties strewn across the naturist beach in wake of this
|A strong easterly wind
on 24/25 April saw huge seas lashing the beach at Vera Playa.
Waves broke right over the sandy beach and flooded amenity areas
beyond the promenade and covered the promenade in sand. The
roundabout at the sea end of Avenida Tortuga Boba was flooded
and closed off by the authorities for safety. The open area
in front of Vera Natura was extensively flooded. The council's
workers have spent weeks getting the many board walks and facilities
such as toilets and beach showers ready for the summer season
- all of the board walks have been swept away and workers had
to recover the sections from all over the area. Toilet blocks
have been swept off their bases and in some cases turned round
90 degrees. Several beach chiringuitos (restaurants) have been
damaged. Clearing up and remedial work will take at least a
week or two.

best naturist destination
It's been a long and cold winter in northern
Europe and it's time to plan a relaxing holiday in the warmth
of the Mediterranean sun - and, of course, it has to be a naturist
holiday. There's no better destination than Vera Playa with
its long, long sandy beach and open, relaxed atmosphere. There's
a wide variety of holiday options ranging from self-catering
holiday apartments varying between basic and luxury standard
to a 4 star hotel within the naturist zone - or you can stay
elsewhere in the area and come to use the naturist beach as
and when it suits you. And there's a choice too about how you
book your holiday - you can book a package which includes hotel
room or apartment hire, flights and airport transfers or you
can book your accommodation direct and book your own flights
and car hire. And when you have visited Vera Playa for the first
time you are quite likely to want to do so time and time again
- or even to move lock, stock and barrel to live here - there's
plenty of property purchase options available and there has
never been a better time to buy property in and around Vera
