All the bar seating areas are out on a terrace which is great for watching the world go by! Bennys bar is my favorite bar in this area, the owner and staff are so lovely and... More

I didn't realise that this little square existed at the back of the beach close to the marina but will be a frequent visitor now. Very pretty with a fountain and bars around it. Has much more soul than the marina and better prices too

This place is slipping, the little French bar with the microwave ovens and the cats has now closed! Thank god but small blessing are, Once upon a Time has had a major improvement and Malcolm and Jackie are still running one of the best bars on the coast. Love the place - especially Budys!

Several bars to choose from with Buddy's best atmosphere ( no tv's ) and excellent irish barman Shane. This is not an Irish bar.

Buddys bar in the plaza is a great place to go. The owners Jackie and Malcolm are a lovely couple and make you feel very welcome. Some friends of ours said what a good bar it was and they were right. Most of the bars were not open with it being late in the season but I bet in summer... More

This attractive little square is just to the side of the Triton Hotel and has a fountain in the middle of the square. There are 2 bars now only open in the square in the evenings and no bar open during the day.

This is a small residential square with about 5 bars, a hairdressers and an excellent tapas restaurant. It is quiet as they have to conform to 'residential' restrictions. My fav was 'Buddy's' (hi to Malcolm, Jackie and especially homeboy Shane). Be sure to call into Budda Bar (Hi Jan). A real find. Just a few steps up from Plaza de... More
