Joaquin in the Park

Don’t forget that Joaquin from Chambao de Joaquin will be strutting his stuff in Majuelo Park in Almuñécar on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of this month. He will be making his usual giant paella in such a way that only Joaquin can.

Vicente Barbero

Vicente Barbero is 81-years old, and is the founder of Chamboa Vicente, a beach bar that could tell a few local tales for sure!
The awning outside says that the Chamboa opened in 1965, although Vicente was in fact open before that, but he would just turn up each summer with his reeds and grass and build the bar, dismantling it at the end of the season.

VIP Visit

La Herradura had a famous visitor at the end of December. Although the event went largely unnoticed, the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, dropped in one Sunday to enjoy some afternoon sunshine and a bite to eat.
Joaquin at Chamboa de Joaquin has been a busy man lately, with his spectacular annual charity paella event in Almuñécar, and prior to that, where did Ms. McAleese and her entourage decide to enjoy a view of the bay and a bit of Spanish nosh? You’ve guessed it!

Joaquín for Cuba

This yearly event in the Parque Majuelo in Almuñécar should not be missed, with a giant paella prepared in spectacular style by Joaquin, Cuban music and other entertainment, it really is a great day out.
