We had the Costa Blanco all to ourselves

We were prepared to brave the crowds at Spanish beaches to experience our first swim in the Meditteranean. But it wasn't necessary: a Chernobyl-like ghostliness greeted us, the residue of the popped housing bubble along the Spanish coast, where towers of condos sat nearly empty. A broad playa yawned at us, and we did have fun playing in the warm, blue, salty water.
