Malaga – about 10 minutes outside from Malaga is “El Palo” a rather ordinary outskirt but if you really want to enjoy fresh fish and seafood you just have to cross the street and go to one of the little restaurants at the beachfront. There are too many and for most you cannot reserve a table.
The chiringuitos are very simple restaurants or bars directly at the beach, some tables are even placed in the sand. But what you get for your money is outstanding in taste and quality.
Entertainment is guaranteed as well as you can watch people strolling along the beach and enjoy the Spanish sun…or watch and listen to the guys at the grill boat arguing with each other…we haven’t found out the reason. We were a little worried if they would forget about our merluza (sea bass) that was burning on the little boat grill but when it came on our plates it was wonderfully juicy and tasted just great as the shrimps pil pil, fresh tomato salad and fried baby fish.
