The Strand

The word Strand is also the Danish and Swedish word for beach, which is an extremely appropriate name for this restaurant seeing as it is located across from Velilla beach.

Swedish owner, Anna Karin Johansson, told us that she ended up in Almuñécar in 2007 because her Danish husband, Egon Philipp, dragged her here (her own choice of words – but not hard to imagine as he is a Viking after all).

The decision to open The Strand was a natural one based on the fact that she has worked with food/gastronomy since she was 20-years old. When we inquired as to how she decided on her menu, she told us that she asked herself the question “What am I missing?” and devised her menu accordingly.

The Strand menu ranges from pasta dishes, to pizza, sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads. They also offer a selection of fresh meat, chicken and seafood dishes. The Strand is cozy and elegant with outdoor seating as well.

They are open every day from 13:00-16:00 and 19:30-23:00 except Sunday evenings and Mondays. Paseo Velilla 7, Almuñécar. Tel. 648 606 654.
