Brussa

I'd never heard of this beach until Fred at http://www.fred29.it/tempo-libero.html mentioned MTBing around there.  I wanted to road bike to it and check it out.  It's an easy flat ride, 70 km in 2.5 hours.  It took an extra half hour coming back, maybe I was tired.

The last km or 2 of the road is hard packed dirt but is no problem on a road bike.  There are a couple of trails to the beach through the pine forest, and then a wide, flat, hard-packed sand beach.  This was great to find because the other local beaches are very commercialized: high rise hotels, souvenir shops, snack bars etc.  This beach was all natural, a little like Fort Pickens National Seashore at Pensacola.  Lots of heron, egrets, cormorants, ducks, seagulls and even a pheasant in the pine woods. 

I rode on the beach a few hundred meters on my 23mm slicks till I reached a wooden boardwalk back to the entrance.  Very pleasant ride and a new place to explore- I may come back with the dogs in a few weeks.
