The Costa Blanca beaches had a bit of a shock on 18th January 2017. They were covered in snow! Not since records began back in 1927 has this phenomenon been recorded. Everywhere along the coast had a blanket of snow covering the normally golden sands.
To commemorate this, an exhibition of photos taken on the beaches of Guardamar del Segura, La Mata and Torrevieja is currently on at the Torrevieja Casino. It’s a beautiful building to visit just for the sake of it, but now you can also witness the extraordinary scenes of earlier this year.
In my typical style, I missed it, as I was travelling in Asia at the time! If you missed it too, I highly recommend you get to Torrevieja before this wonderful photographic display finishes on 16th April.
