Pristine sand and dunes with a few good restaurants await you at playa de Bolonia.

It is a surfers beach all year round, backed by the remains of a Roman settlement (The ruins of Baleo Claudia 380BC). 

The town, for the next three centuries, had a huge theatre with temples dedicated to Juno, Jupiter, Minerva and the Egyptian Goddess Isis, the Romans being equal-opportunity believers.

On the shore were the circular stone vats used to salt the tuna. 

Restaurante Las Rejas

At one end of the stunning beach, you will find this characterful family-run restaurant, serving fresh fish and seafood.

On this visit in October 2019 we...

CHIRINGUITO MANACA

Drive past the Hotel Indalo on the road from Mojácar to Carboneras, bare right inland and take a left at the third roundabout onto Playa Macenas where you will see the Castillo de Macenas, just before the Macenas golf goes inland.

Drive past Chiringuito Macenas (you could stop here for a drink and/or tapas) and onto a dirt road which is not in great condition and initially runs along the edge of the sea on a cliff and then winds through canyons inland.

You will see stunning scenery on the drive and with due caution it is perfectly passable by car.

It is quite a rough and bumpy track but eventuall...

BAR PACO BUENO

This is a very traditional, social club, old school style Pintxo bar. There are always many local families here, the young to the very old mixing amongst the tourists. The bar is big on boxing, rugby and Basque rowing with lots of old memorabilia on the surrounding walls.

It is run by owner Paco Bueno (who was a boxer in his younger days ) and his sons.

It's lively, entertaining and a friendly atmosphere.

The specialties are deep fried seafood like calamares, but the prized dish is the deep fried gambas, you need to wait for them to come up piping hot, but be quick as they are soon snapped up!
