Campoamor Beach

Campoamor Beach has always been one of our favourite spots here on the Costa Blanca South. The two restaurants that sit right on the edge of the beach are La Barraca and Montepiedra. We actually haven't got round to eating in La Barraca yet even though the menu looks beautiful and we have only ever had snacks in Montepiedra, but that aside they're both such perfect places to sit with a coffee, soak up the sea air whilst watching the world go by.

Sadly when we went for a walk there the other day they were both closed up for the season. Covid aside I think they would be closed anyway, as many places do shut from January into February here.

It doesn't stop us from spending time at Campoamor beach though. We love to walk along the beach promenade and then around to the marina.

Back in September 2019 when the 'gota fria' hit it damaged the beach front in Campoamor pretty bad. They've had a temporary wooden walkway there for quite a while now. It was definitely there all through the Summer and the road has been closed in both directions for the whole time too. When we were there on Thursday just gone, it looks like renovations have started to the promenade. So fingers crossed the beach front will all be back to normal soon!

On the far side of the marina is a new and used boat sales office. We did have a look around and surprisingly there was a boat for sale that caught our eye and something we possibly could afford. Very tempting, but when we came away and thought about it properly we probably wouldn't get much use out of it! A very nice idea, but I think we'll stick to going on boat trips rather then having our own! Fun to look around though!

Campoamor beach is very very popular in the Summer with local and oversea tourists. We have people coming down from Madrid for their summer holidays as well as people from across Europe and us Brits too.

Have you been to Campoamor beach before? If you are ever in this part of Spain I'd definitely recommend Campoamor, it's such a lovely area and the beach is beautiful too. We always get that 'holiday' vibe evey time we go there.

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
