Spanish Medium Review Quiz - Vocabulary - A Day at the Beach! (Questions)

Are you a mountain person or a beach person? Both places have their attractions and both places provide you with lots of things to do! In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be spending a day at the beach, in Spanish that is. For you mountain people – don’t worry – we will visit the mountains in another quiz.

With that in mind, let’s look at things to take to the beach and things that can be found at the beach!
