Waking up at 5:30AM is no fun. But when it is to go to the beach to watch the sun rise with your friends, then it doesn’t seem as bad. I love pretty skies and, in fact, I have stayed up a few nights after a night out just to see the sun rise from my terrace. So when we talked about missing on a lay in to go to the beach very early in the morning, I was 100% down.
It was weird seeing that beach so empty as, during the day, it is absolutely packed and you can barely walk without steeping on someone’s towel. We got there at about 6:40AM and sat down to have some coffee and biscuits whilst the sun was rising. I had seen many sunsets from that same spot before but they had been nowhere near as beautiful as that sunrise. As you will see in the pictures, it was breathtaking and something worth doing if you live near the beach or are on holiday.
We stayed there until about 8AM, when the sun was completely up and shining. I don't think I had ever taken pictures that early in the day - as I am usually in bed or rushing to uni - but the lighting, oh the lighting, it was incredible. The most ordinary picture looked like straight out of a travel magazine, and I did feel like I was in some tropical island in the Caribbean or Hawaii.
