There is a cool beach bar and restaurant called Marina Playa situated on the beach of Marina del Este (previously known as Playa de los Berengueles) in La Herradura. The reason I call it cool is because it transforms from day to night.
They are open every day all summer from 10:00 a.m. until approx. 3:00 a.m. During the day, it is a tropical chiringuito, where you can soak up the sun on their beach beds and feast on their Mediterranean cuisine, many seafood specialties and mixed paellas.
In the evenings, the lighting, music and whole ambience gives you the sensation that you are in a new place altogether – it’s almost magical – even the staff and the menu changes. The main feature on their menu at night, aside from their fresh selection of seafood, is their six different types of fondues (for two people to share) as well as their delicious crêpes. How is that for unique?
The music they play is a mix of salsa, samba, jazz and funky – great to listen to while sipping a cocktail or two, or three or four…. oh, and lest I forget to mention, during the month of August, they have a live Flamenco Show every Thursday from 10:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m., which you won’t want to miss.
