TWO OF THE COSTA BLANCA'S popular Chiringuitos (beach bars) reopened their beachfront kiosks this past weekend. We took the cameras down to Punta Prima yesterday to find out what's going on.
The much loved Spanish beach bars are a haven for sun-seeking beach aficionados, offering welcome shade and refreshments throughout the long Mediterranean
The Chiringuito on Punta Prima's main beach is located in a high-quality residential area bustling with tourists throughout the high season, and devoid of local services along the coastline Punta Prima's beach bar is incredibly popular and provides a welcome watering hole for coastal walkers.
Constructed entirely of pressure-treated hardwood to preserve the natural environment, the Chiringuitos offer full bar service, with an elevated wooden decked terraced area overlooking the magnificent Punta Prima beach.
Chiringuitos, great value beachfront family dining
In addition to providing liquid refreshment, the beach bar also offers a menu of food including toasted sandwiches, baguettes, salads, pizzas and Spanish Tapas.
Prices are reasonable too, with a toasted sandwich from €3.70, a beefburger from €5.00, and pizza prices starting at €6.80. The ideal place for casual family dining.
Playa Flamenca's beach bar at Cala Estaca reopened just yesterday, while Punta Prima's beach bar opened Saturday. Both bars are open for service seven days a week throughout the summer.
