Also during our one month stay in Cabrera, we enjoyed some beach hopping. We still didn’t have a car and so had to take gua-guas and walk everywhere. After hearing about La Entrada, where the ocean meets the river, we just had to go. Only we hadn’t realized just how far it was from the bus stop. Little A soon fell asleep (or fainted) in his stroller and so wasn’t bothered by the long walk or the scorching sun. But it was worth it…
The beach by the ocean offers a beautiful view of the mountains and a looooong beach walk lined by palm trees. But the waves were way too strong for our little toddler. We tried to play in the sand close by, but one wave took Little A’s sun hat and another almost stole him away from me. So we had to move away quickly, and instead went to the part by the river. Since the ocean water runs into the the river it’s much warmer than they usually are. Little A loved playing in it and try to learn how to swim, or just play with all the other kids who hang out here.
On the riverside the beach is lined with small houses that in fact are tiny restaurant shops. You order, take a seat by one of the many plastic tables and get ready for the best fried fish of your life! I’m the teacher who joins the kids when they complain because they’re serving fish again, and rarely enjoy fish in restaurants either. But this fish is caught the same day, if not even more recent, and it’s one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. They also serve piña colada – out of a coconut. That just there made my whole year.
This is a beach where the locals hang out, bring food and make a day of it. If you drive – which I recommend – you just park your car on the beach close to the tiny houses.
