ALMERIA Province has scooped another “best beach” prize.
Earlier Los Genoveses beach in San Jose (Nijar) topped a poll organised by the Antena 3 television channel.
This time the Los Muertos beach in Carboneras won a ballot by the online publication 20 Minutos.
Los Muertos overtook Playa Grande in Miño (Galicia) which won in 2013 and 2014. Gandario beach in La Coruña came second, and the Bolonia dunes in Tarifa (Cadiz) was third.
This was the second time that Los Muertos was chosen as best beach after taking the title in 2007.
There was stiff competition as the 20 Minutos’ poll, now 10 years old and the longest-established of its type in Spain, selected 100 beaches. Readers were invited to put forward their own candidates, adding another 61 to the list.
The Carboneras beach soon took the lead over competitors with a final count of 35,941 votes.
