Muriola Beach in Spain is gearing up for the filming of “Game of Thrones” seventh season — but it’s also getting ready for an influx in visitors.
Travel + Leisure is reporting that a nude beach in Spain’s Basque Country is will be a filming location and that anticipation is building around the locale.
“Everything is surrounded by a lot of mystery,” the local mayor, Roberto Muñoz, told Spanish outlet El Correo. “We don't know exact dates or who will come, nor if new extras will be needed.”
The small cove is referred to as “a wild sandy area” by the local tourism board, reports Travel + Leisure, and it is the ideal place to those who seek a quiet atmosphere.”
It doesn’t sound like it will be quiet for too long. Filming locations such as Northern Ireland and Dubrovnik have enjoyed huge spikes in visitors coming to see the locations used in the filming of the series, but visitors — whether they are coming because of the “Game of Thrones” hype or not — will not be disappointed by what they find if the images are anything to go by.
