Re: It is very close to the beach!

Kwizbot                ¡Está muy cerca de la playa! 
You                       !Está muy cerca a la playa!

You could also say:     ¡Está muy próximo a la playa! 

 

Would it be correct to say: “cerca a” or does cerca always require a “de”

Thank you, Nicole

Hola Nicole

cerca is always used with preposition "de", not with "a".

próximo is always used with preposition "a" not with "de".

However, it is important to note, in case you come across this that adjective "cercano/cercana" must be used with preposition "a" not "de".

Some examples so you can see how they work:

Tenemos un apartamento que está cerca de la playa.

Tenemos un apartamento que está próximo a la playa.

Tenemos un apartamento cercano a la playa.

Saludos

Inma
