CONDE Nast Traveler, has recently named the ‘Best and most emblematic chiringuitos in Spain,’ with a beach bar in Malaga topping the list.
Situated on one of Marbella’s best beaches, Aquí Te Quiero Ver is a traditional chiringuito that serves local food in a rustic ambience, and can now boast to be the best in Spain.
Originally founded by José and Emilia in 1977, the beach bar has evolved from its beginning as a simple informal shack to a beautiful restaurant run by José and Emilia s’ children and grandchildren.
According to the travel magazine, chiringuitos are ‘famous for their potato omelette tapas and tomato salad, but also their fresh fish and seafood’; a place people go ‘to socialise, to see and be seen. To laugh, chat and even flirt.’
Their list of the top eight is as follows:
– Aquí Te Quiero Ver, Marbella
– El Puntal, Santander
– Dabadaba Beach, San Sebastian
– Sa Cova, Menorca
– Coco Novo Beach, Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz)
– Oli-ba-ba, Oliva (Valencia)
– Beso Beach, Formentera
– Boia Nit, Cadaqués (Girona)
