BBQ at Union Beach

Submitted by Simone on Mon, 07/22/2013 - 14:00

You have reached your destination!  After a long beach walk we suddenly catch the first kite school like an oasis in the desert. They are placed between shady palmtrees close to the shore made out of bamboo and palmleaves. The lovley garden invites to chill out and a huge green field offers space for resting and avoids any sand in your kite gear. Slightly exhausted and thirsty we can't wait to get the first St. Miguel beer and we launch into the small bar.
