There is nothing more magical than waking on an un-spoilt beach. And that is why I set my alarm for 7am every day last week for a morning walk on the beach. Yes, I could have had lovely long holiday lie inns. But there is something special about enjoying early mornings on deserted beaches.
Greece and the very beautiful Ikos Oceania did not disappoint, I enjoyed several luxurious walks along the beach. The sand untouched for possibly the only time that day, my footsteps being the very first to touch the sand.
Walking along enjoying the warm of the sun starting to peek through the clouds, as the beach attendants prepare the beach for the day, before the games of volleyball, or the pedalos and canoes venture out to sea. The only sound being the sea gently lapping back and forth from the beach.
The one thing that I loved so early in morning is the beautiful pink haze on the horizon that hid the snow-topped mountains in the distance, which only appear in the afternoon and disappear again before morning.
Once I had experienced this joyous walk on my first morning I jumped out of bed when my alarm sounded every morning after that, excited to get down to the deserted beach and enjoy my long morning walk.
