For those of you who find the coast of western Andalucía a bit too fast paced and metropolitan, you'll be pleased to know that a shoreline sanctuary can be found by way of a welcome shade and refreshingly cool drinks at the unique Spanish chiringuitos. Indulge yourself in some shellfish you've probably never heard of, and an assortment of fresh seafood delectably battered - the classic fritura Malagueña.
The time passes slowly outside of the city in Andalucía, and where better to while away the hours that in these humble watering holes where sardines and other fish fresh from the sea are roasted on cane sticks over open fires built in old beached fishing boats and served simply with salt, pepper and lemon.
On the subject of Spanish sanctuaries, we have the perfect hideaway property - Torre de Tramores.This fabulous property, near to the lovely Andalucía village of Benahavis, provides a spacious, stylish and comfortable setting for family and group holidays, and is available for holiday rental when not in use by the Goldsmith family, the Estate's owners.
