La Carihuela, Torremolinos : History and Information

The beach of La Carihuela, in Torremolinos, is 18 km away. from the center of the city, and covers from the Bajondillo beach to the Puerto Deportivo de Benalmádena.

Of dark sand, it has an extension of 2,100 meters in length and 40 meters in average width, and usually has a calm or moderate wave tide.

If for some reason the beach of La Carihuela stands out, it is due to the number of nearby restaurants and chiringuitos where you can enjoy the typical fried fish from Málaga or numerous traditional dishes.

Its name pays tribute to the old fishing district located east of the city, now converted into a cosmopolitan area that concentrates a large number of leisure establishments and hotels.

Its areas of palm trees with natural grass provide a pleasant shade that invites you to enjoy the summer days.

In high season we can find kiosks, hammock rental services and nautical equipment such as pedal boats. In addition, in summer, this beach becomes one of the most frequented in the area thanks to the fact that it hosts various shows.

One of the most special days to enjoy the beach of La Carihuela is on July 16, during the feast of the Virgen del Carmen, patron saint of the municipality, which hosts a wide program of recreational activities around the procession and Boarding of the Virgin.

The opening of the lighting became a real phenomenon in the city. So much that half an hour before the start of the show and you could almost walk on the street and the crowd was concentrated until the roundabout of the Marqués de Larios mobile in hand to not miss a detail of the lights. Among them was Laura Mira and her husband Bernardo, who arrived at seven at the Center and already found all the mogollón. “We wanted to go for a snack, but we have stayed to take a place,” they acknowledged.

Before the city was lit up, the balloons became the improvised protagonists of the afternoon, since the usual blues with the slogan Merry Christmas that distributes the town hall were joined by other reds scattered around the Ronald McDonald House and some white from the Lo Güeno restaurant.

The person in charge of lighting Christmas was the mayor of the city, Francisco de la Torre, who together with the mayor responsible for Fiestas, Teresa Porras, and different members of the government and opposition team, pressed the button that started the show of lights. At seven o’clock the large 18-meter-high tree lit up the Plaza de la Constitución and seconds later the music began to play on Calle Larios. Although in the first pass only two songs sounded, attendees who walk down the street will enjoy ‘Feliz Navidad’, by Boney M, ‘Christmas Festival’ by The Boston Pops Orchestra and ‘Wizards in Winter’, by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Like last year, the central street will host two shows every day: at 6:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. and it will last about eight minutes, since the three songs will be played in a row. As could be seen in the premiere, for this year more Christmas songs have been chosen and the lights shine at a somewhat slower pace than the previous year.

Until next January 6, when Their Majesties the Magi of the East leave all their bags full of gifts in the houses of the people of Malaga, about two million points of light will illuminate the streets of the capital. All the bulbs are low consumption and have involved an investment of 573,211 euros in the emblematic areas of the city. On this occasion, Calle Larios, has been decorated with a vault with about 2,630 microled cords, two domes and 18 porticos with windows, stained-glass windows and cathedral-style rosettes that have been made looking as close as possible to that of Malaga.

Christmas will light up this year in Malaga for 44 days and to avoid traffic incidents as a result of the high number of people who come to see the lights, the City will restrict the passage of private vehicles through the Alameda Principal during Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays , holidays and vespers between 18 and 22 hours. As it happened yesterday, since the cars were diverted by Córdoba Street and Alameda de Colón.

1. Origin of the Malaga feria

Summer festival in Malaga have their origin in the commemoration of the incorporation of Málaga to the Crown of Castile by the Catholic Monarchs, who entered the city on 19 August 1487. A few years later (1491) the City Council established the Start of festivities. Over the years they have been gaining strength and today is the big summer party in southern Spain.

3. Real de la Feria.

It has an area of over 500,000 m2 and 179 trade show booths belonging to social malaga fair organizations, clubs, guilds and companies, the vast majority with free access. It also has all the infrastructure and services, not to mention the typical attractions of a fair for the enjoyment of young and old. The Real has several distinct parts: in the area of the North booths have more room and animation and South are more familiar and where you can eat and be more relaxed.

In the area of youth and adolescents are many booths which have loud music, and finally, there is the area of the fairground, a large area with fun for the little ones and not so small, great attractions, raffles and other entertainment.
During the day fair it is very hot and the sun mercilessly punishes the people reaching 35 degrees. I advise to use light clothes and hydrate well.

4. How to get to the exhibition center and the fairground

The council enables more than 5,000 parking spaces in the center for the day fair and almost 10,000 places around the actual so you can drive but some nights there is so many people that it is impossible to park. Therefore, it is best to use public transport, either bus, offering good service both to the center and at night the royal or taxis, more expensive than the bus but compensates when shared . By the way, if you stay in the capital you can also use the newly opened Metro Málaga.

If you stay in a nearby village there are also buses with special services and trains that leave you in the center of Malaga (to Torremolinos, Benalmadena or Fuengirola).

5. Fair of the Centre

During the day people usually go to the historic center (although each year the real is more lively at day) to enjoy the party, music, tapas and drink. Larios Street, the busiest and emblem of Malaga pedestrian artery, is the epicenter of the festival, with the Constitution Square and surrounding streets of the historic center as a good place to feel the party atmosphere .

During the day there are often live bands of Verdiales in Calle Larios, brass bands and friends who encourage staff to decide to come. Of course you will hear many sevillanas and see women with beautiful flamenco dresses dancing to music. At sunset, the music in the streets must end by municipal side though people continue to party.

And a warning: beware of crowds and fights between drunks (though very seldom) . Avoid the crowded streets if you really are overwhelmed by big crowds.

More than 7,000 cruise passengers arrive at the port of Malaga during the fair days. Surely the party and the atmosphere that they will find in the city center they will never forget.

 

6. Pilgrimage

The first Saturday of the fair at noon takes place the festival of the city, a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Victory, patron of the city. Riders on horseback, horse-drawn carriages and people on foot accompany the flagship of the malaga feria to this temple so dear to Malaga.

9. Eat at the Malaga fair

For lunch at the fair in Malaga there are several details that you should know: the day you can eat well in the restaurants of the historic center (although there are many people and some lower quality) and also in the many stores that sell dishes like fried fish, ham, cheese, cooked shrimp or prawns.

Try if you have the opportunity a good gazpacho or garlic soup, a typical dish from malaga feria. I leave you some names of good restaurants and tapas places of the center: Bodegas El Pimpi. Alea, El Refectorio near the Cathedral, Meson Santiago, The Twins, La Reserva del Pastor, Reserve 12, Lo Gueno, Cortijo Pepe….Or if you want something more sophisticated  : Jose Carlos Garcia at Pier 1.

We like to go to the snack stands there right in front of El Corte Ingles, because there is quality and good price and if going into the Fair in the city center, its a relaxing location and sometimes they give free tapas :-).

To eat at night at the malaga feria fairgrounds things change and the truth is that it is difficult to eat well and be satisfied. The booths offer traditional foods like potato omelette, fried peppers, eggplant with honey, skewers, croquettes, sausages and fried fish. In all these years I remember not many places where you eat really well at malaga feria. Just use the fast food stalls that are scattered throughout the Cortijo de Torres.

Shrimps at Malaga Feria

You will eventually drink huge amounts of Cartojal at malaga feria (a slightly sweet Malaga wine with designation of origin) is taken very cold to relieve the heat of August (care that their effects may not be very beneficial). Another typical drink is called rebujito (wine with soda lime type chamomile lemon flavor), beer and all kinds of alcoholic drinks that you can imagine. But beware that it is important and fun to drink in moderation!

10. Culture

Although malaga feria is on holidays and most people come to have fun, it is worth taking a break and do something cultural because Malaga is growing a lot in this area. You can visit some monuments of the historic center or see a museum in Malaga. There are many good ones with good temporary exhibitions (Alcazaba, Cathedral, Castillo Gibralfaro, Roman Theatre ….): Picasso Museum, Thyssen Museum, Automotive, contemporary art ( CAC) … ..

 

You can not go without …

  • View the atmosphere of the malaga feria center, especially calle Larios, Plaza de la Constitution and Calle Granada. A one lifetime experience
  • Test the Cartojal wine, (drink with moderation 🙂 ).
  • Give yourself a night around the fairgrounds.
