For the 5th consecutive year and thanks to the success of previous editions, this coming Friday the 1st November sees the start of the 5th Erotic Tapas Route in our neighbouring town of Fuengirola.
Be scared, be very scared! Our terrifying Halloween programme is now available to view and download on our website. Once again, our animation team will be organising lots of fun activities for kids and adults. As this festivity coincides with the half term holidays, we’ve actually got a full programme of activities from the 12th October to the 1st November.
Next week sees the start of the 6th edition of Benalmadena Town’s popular Tapas Route. From the 18th to the 27th October, many of the Benalmadena’s bars and restaurants will take part in this gastronomic event which every year produces some mouth-watering creations!
The establishments which take part in the Tapas Route will have to prepare a special tapa designed only for this event. This way visitors will be able to make their way around the town following the ‘route’ and trying a different and unique tapa in each bar and restaurant; just make sure they are officially taking part in the event.
The first fortnight in October marks an important event in Fuengirola’s calendar: The ‘Feria del Rosario’ in honour of the town’s patron.
For the next week, trips to Fuengirola will include a compulsory visit to the town’s main fairground for a fun and entertaining introduction to true andalucian ‘feria’ culture. Lots of flamenco – music and dancing – great food, wines, sherry, shows, parades and lots more await!
Are you ready to enjoy 4 days of music, dancing, delicious food and lots of great ‘vino’? This Thursday sees the start of the Feria de San Miguel in Torremolinos; from the 26th to the 29th September our neighbouring town will be in full festive mode to celebrate the most important date on their calendar.
Once again, Active Sound Productions, a local production company specialising in the organisation of musical events on the Costa del Sol have organised an evening of the best live music in Sunset Beach Club’s Moonlight Theatre.
For the 3rd year in a row we are delighted to welcome back Buddy Walker with his fabulous tribute to the legendary Buddy Holly. A talented singer and musician, Buddy Walker is a previous winner of ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ where he performed his tribute to the rock ‘n roll legend.Walker has taken his tribute show all over the world and has even played on the stage of the legendary Surf Ballroom in Clearlake, Iowa, where Buddy Holly first played live.
The Buddy Holly Show which will take place on the 5th October 2013 is a tribute to one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century and his exceptional songs. His music has inspired some of the greatest artists of our time: The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Hollies and Bob Dylan to name but a few.
This weekend sees the start of the acclaimed Luna Mora Festival in the beautiful white village of Guaro. This unique event is your opportunity to witness and experience the magic of ‘Andalusi’ music and culture.
The Festival takes place on the 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th of September 2013 and is sure to be a great success with visitors coming from all over Spain to experience its rich blend of true Andalusian culture and tradition.
Two of the team from Sunset Beach Club visited the Luna Mora Festival last year and took some great photos which will give you a great idea of what to expect if you choose to venture into the hills and take part in the festivities; you can see the photos HERE.
Next week is ‘Feria’ week here in Benalmadena with the ‘Pueblo’ (Town) celebrating festivities in honor of their patron, the Virgen de la Cruz.
Obviously this is a very traditional event and many of the activities and events organised for the week may not appeal to many of our guests; however, we’ve put together a short list of – what we feel are – some of the highlights of the fair and that you might enjoy. Here goes…
- The traditional ‘Chocolatada’ which takes place every morning at 11.00am in the Plaza de España. Organised by the town hall, it’s basically free hot chocolate for everyone! Head on up there for breakfast one day and try some original Spanish hot chocolote (note: we’re not sure if the ‘churros’ are included ;-))
The 6th edition of Fuengirola’s Beer Festival starts today (3rd August) in the town’s emblematic Sohail Castle. For two weeks – until the 17th August – all who visit the Festival will enjoy the fun atmosphere of the Costa del Sol’s very own Oktoberfest.
Special marquees and tables have been set up where visitors can try typical German dishes, sample a fantastic selection of Bavarian beers and listen to live music.
The Fuengirola Beer Festival is open to the public from 7.00pm to 02.00am on week days and from 12.00pm to 02.00am at weekends.
Definitely makes for a fun night out. Are you planning to visit the Costa del Sol’s Oktoberfest?
