Iznajar Lake

​Valdearenas Beach is our nearest beach, 5 minutes drive from the rural village of Iznajar in the Córdorba province, Andalucia. The freshwater lake is a beautiful turquoise and acts of a reservoir for the region. The beach has a great campsite and  chiringuito and during the summer you can go swimming,  rent pedalos,  kayaks and go sailing. 

Off-season it’s a great place to make a sand park , Chaos’s idea, marvel at your footprints in the sand and marvel at the stunning view.

    What a beautiful spot to enjoy. There is something about water, whatever it’s form that is so appealing.

    1. Thanks, the water and sunshine make a magical combination.

  2. That place looks so peaceful, like a hidden area

    Thank you for linking up

    1. Thanks for hosting this, we enjoy sharing a photo and looking at the other photos posted. It feels hidden and remote. Although not too far from Malaga, Granada, Seville or Cordoba as the crow flies.

    Looks like a good little spot for you – how nice to have something like this only 5 minutes away!

    1. yeah beautiful spot, the boys loved playing there. It’s 5 mins from the town of Iznajar which is worth a visit.

  4. What a beautiful spot. Looks so inviting when it is cold back in blighty

    1. Thanks, the sunshine is lovely, there was a nip in the air, but it was still OK to picnic in shorts!

    They look tiny against that massive beach. What a treat to have it all to yourself.

    1. Thanks, Chaos set off and soon became a dot against the shore line when we got out of the car.

    Beaches in the off season are the best! This looks like a wonderful place to stop and enjoy life. I love the final image. 🙂

    1. Thanks, there was only us, a couple of dog walkers and two guys in a boat all day. The boys loved the space, the lake is unusually low at the moment.

  7. You are lucky to have that so close. I love the planting on the hills, it looks like quilting #MySundayPhoto

    1. Thanks for commenting. This was a great find at this time of year. There are miles and miles of neatly farmed olive trees in this area.
