In whatever coastal town you stay, during the hot summer days the best recommendation is swimming and sunbathing on the beaches or in the swimming pools. Even though among more and more demanding tourists, such type of recreation can not be counted in the special kind of vacation, that is still the best and the most typical way to spend your vacation. However, the rest that means staying on the beach, swimming, and sunbathing, can not be always and completely fulfilled, so the time that you plan on spending on the sea, you could assign to some other activities which will make your vacation more beautiful, more interesting and different that the previous one.
