Eating Out, Beaches etc

Not familiar with this part of Spain, can you tell me if

a. the surrounding beaches are really busy during mid September and

b. the average price of drinks, tapas, lunch or dinner. Obviously it depends on where you eat, but just an average price for wine etc.

Many thanks.

Looks like just you and us Shiraz, we are due to arrive late on thursday september 13th staying at the Aparthotel Londres for 4 nights, if I find an internet facility handy I will up-date you, unless of course you beat us to it, I did see in some review recently that a beer in a bar near Londres was €2.

Enjoy the trip, it sure looks a fabulous place.

The beaches are now starting to quieten down, but can get a little bit busy on the weekends when the Spanish tourists visit. But nothing like it is in August. You will definitely be able to find a nice quiet place to relax either on the Mar Menor side or the Med.

The price of drinks can be on a par with the UK but there are some bars that are much cheaper than others, it is just a matter of finding them. Dolce and Cavanna is a cheap place to drink and you get free tapa. It is near Plaza Cavanna. There is also the Sol Bar which do a very reasonable menu del dia around 8€ for a 3 course. In the same area is a bar called Jimmy´s but all the locals know it as Yan´s. Drinks are very cheap here. If you go to Galerias El Flamenco (KM 4, on Gran Via, near Zocos) there is a great authentic Italian restaurant called Napule - fantastic food at a good price and great atmosphere, in the same vicinity is a Polish restaurant called Siesta (next to the laundry), 8.50 for menu del dia but the food all home made and amazing, four of us ate ther for 50€ including several bottles of wine. Also in this area is a typical spanish bar which is only open on a weekends, very cheap, good home made food and amazing wine as he also owns a bodega (wine shop).

Wine can be anything from 6€ to 12€ a bottle in the restaurants. From 1.20€ in the supermarkets. Small beers (half pint) are around 1.50€ to 2€, gin and tonics are about 5€ but the measures are still very big, so be careful.
