iphone6+ Start of the beach season in Collioure, South of France
In June there is still lot's of free space at the beach in Collioure. Water temp. at 17 deg Celcius is not so tempting and air temperature is only some 23C.
Beside of that the beach, one of 3 in this village, looks quite idyllic in the fair weather as it did this day.
