Tomorrow, Thursday, June 7 thousands of people will again meet in the popular fishermen´s district of La Carihuela in Torremolinos to attend the traditional Pescaíto Day which this year celebrates its 25th edition.
What began 25 years ago as an initiative among some traders in the neighbourhood, today is one of the flagship events of Torremolinos which attracts thousands of visitors enjoying more than 10,000 kilograms of fried fish that is distributed for free with a drink in the streets near the waterfront.
There will be as well musical entertainment, dancing and live music, so that it is not surprising that last year attended this event over 35,000 thousand people, enjoying a tasty fried fish and a cold beer under a radiant sun. Among the dishes available on the beach of La Carihuela are for example sardines, anchovies, squid, mussels and even portions of Paella. This great gastronomic festival will take place between 1 and 5 pm.
Pescaíto Day is held the first Thursday of June. The festival takes place on the promenade of La Carihuela district, where bars and restaurants give away free fish of various species. The fried fish is a typical dish of the municipalities of Malaga.
The beach of La Carihuela is one of the most popular ones in Torremolinos, with more than 2,000 metres length and a high level of occupancy during the summer months. It is an urban beach with a large number of services and is easily accessible on foot, by car or bus. It extends from the centre of Torremolinos almost to Benalmadena Costa and has a good number of hotels, entertainment and dining.
Precisely their particular seafood cuisine including the “fried fish” has made famous this stretch of coastline of the Costa del Sol. There is no better plan than to enjoy the beach and sun and then sample in the refreshing shade of a beach bar a serving of fried fish with salad and served with a cold beer… Unique flavour of summer in Malaga!
