We’ve got a double dose of Valentine’s Day at Sunset Beach Club this year! As the 14th February falls on a Friday this year, and knowing that there are many people who work on the Saturday, we’ve decided to offer our Valentine’s Day Gala Dinner on two nights: Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February 2014!
If you’re looking to treat your loved ones to a special evening, we can certainly help. Just look at the mouth watering menu our chefs have prepared for this special occasion (see below). And if you’d like to make the evening a little more special, we’ve got some great accommodation options (see below) for you to enjoy a romantic weekend.
This week saw the start of a new gastronomic event in MijasTown and La Cala de Mijas: La Ruta del Cuchareo (literally translated as ‘The Spoon Route”).
During the cooler months of winter (January, February and March) locals and visitors will be able to sample a wide selection of tasty local homemade dishes and stews. Many of the bars and restaurants in Mijas and La Cala will be offering a fantastic combination of warm tapa (stew, casserole or rice served in a clay dish) and a drink (beer, wine or soft drink) for just €2
One of the most popular activities here at Sunset Beach Club is the Spanish Cooking lessons our animation team puts on for our guests every Wednesday.
The star of these cooking lessons? Spain’s most famous and popular dish: The Paella.
There are many recipes and formulas that promise the secret to the ‘Ultimate Paella’; however, the reality is that a Paella can be made with lots of different ingredients allowing the cooks creativity to shine.
If you go to Valencia (Where the paella originated) it’ll look and taste different to the paella you’ll find here on the Costa del Sol. The important thing is that they all taste amazing and make for a delicious and enjoyable meal
We recently wrote about the Erotic Tapas Route which was to be held in Fuengirola at the start of November. This fun and ‘cheeky’ event has grown in popularity over that last few years and now attracts thousands of visitors from all over Spain.
As it’s such a unique concept, we like to get our roving reporters on the scene to grab photographic evidence of these ‘erotic’ tapas and see what all the fuss is about. Our intrepid colleague, Inma, enlisted the help of some of her friends and – camera in hand – started her adventure visiting many of the bars and restaurants participating in the Erotic Tapas Route.
We’re always looking for fun and interesting things for out guests to do whilst on holiday with us and we think we might well have stumbled across a great one here: Gourmet Tapas Tours in Malaga.
It’s funny how we came across these unique tapas tours… they actually mentioned us on Twitter after having taken a group of guests who were staying at our hotel on one of their fabulous gastronomic tapas tours of Malaga. Turns out they’ve actually had over 30 groups of Sunset Beach Club guests take one of their tours so they must be doing something right
We’re not sure if it’s the best place but it will certainly provide a welcomed change to the overpriced sandwiches and snacks available at most of Malaga airports food outlets.
Local chef, Dani García (2 Michelin stars) recently launched his latest gastronomic concept, a Deli Bar aiming to seduce traveller’s senses with a range of mouth watering dishes with a clear identity: the gastronomic traditions of the south of Spain and the use of local produce.

Have you ever tried ‘Churros’? No idea what we’re talking about? Stick around as we’re about to tell everything you need to know about this delicious Spanish treat!
A ‘Churro’ – sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut – is a popular fried dough snack which is normally eaten for breakfast accompanied by a bowl of thick hot chocolate or a good café con leche. The ingredients for the typical churro couldn’t be simpler: A mixture of flour, water and salt. Once the mixture is prepared it goes into a ‘churrera’ (special churro making machine) which then squeezes the doughy mixture into a large fryer where it’ll remain until crispy and crunchy – this usually takes about 30 seconds!
A while back we asked our Facebook fans to name their favourite bars in Benalmádena. Forty six people replied with their top choices so we thought we’d include them here on the blog in case future guests are in need of some recommendations as to the best places to enjoy their favourite drink!
