Seafood Fair (Feria del Marisco)

Benalmádena is getting ready to host it’s popular ‘Feria del Marisco’ (Seafood Fair) from 18th to 21st April. This event takes place in a large tent in the parking area (next to Kaleido Bar) in Benalmádena Marina. All visitors to the Marina will be able to sample some of the most delicious seafood at bargain prices!

Year after year this successful gastronomic event has gone from strength to strength; in previous editions, more than 25,000 visitors made their way to the Marina to sample the mouth-watering seafood available. They consumed seven tons of seafood and 5000 litres of beer! We expect a similar attendance this year, especially with the excellent weather forecast.

There are 5 restaurants taking part in this edition offering visitors the best products (food and drinks) at unbeatable prices. All the seafood available is substantially discounted so it’s a great opportunity to tuck into your favourite dishes without spending too much; in some cases, you’ll find dishes up to 40 or 50% cheaper than in a normal ‘Chiringuito’ (Beach Bar).

These are just some of the dishes you’ll be able to sample over the weekend and their estimated prices:

  • Prawns – €8
  • Mussels – €6
  • Fresh Oysters – €3
  • Rice with seafood – €5
  • Drinks – €2
  • … and lots more!

The restaurants featured this year are the following: Los Mellizos, Casa Rafael (Papa Erig), Almarina, Almadraba and La Despensa.

The XV Seafood Fair will be held in a 500-metre square marquee and you’ll be able to start sampling the delicious food from 12:30pm each day.
