Living life in Sunny Spain
The sea, the world ocean or simply the ocean is the connected body of salty water that covers over 70 percent of the Earth’s surface. It moderates the Earth’s climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle. It has been travelled and explored since ancient times, while the scientific study of the sea— oceanography—dates broadly from the voyages of Captain James Cook to explore the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 17 79. The word “sea” is also used to denote smaller, partly landlocked sections of the ocean.
A wide variety of organisms, including viruses, bacteria, protists, algae, plants, fungi and animals, live in the sea, which offers a wide range of marine habitats and ecosystems, ranging vertically from the sunlit surface waters and the shoreline to the enormous depths and pressures of the cold, dark abyssal zone, and in latitude from the cold waters under the Arctic ice to the colourful diversity of coral reefs in tropical regions. Many of the major groups of organisms evolved in the sea and life may have started there..
Idyllic and charming, El Faro is best known locally for its iconic lighthouse, from where it gets its name. Perched on a jutting peninsula that is located a couple of kilometres west of Fuengirola, El Faro boasts some of the finest Mediterranean views found anywhere on the coast. This is the spot where the coastal highway becomes extremely winding. The road hugs low and close to the shoreline, leading to somewhat distracting views of the richly azure Mediterranean horizon. Once there, El Faro proves extremely alluring for visitors and residents of all ages.
