Garrucha fish market

14 Apr

As you will know if you read my blog, Garrucha is a lovely fishing port about 15 minutes away from us.  As you would expect there are dozens of fish restaurants around the harbour and along the whole stretch of beach towards Mojacar.

But if you are out earlier in the day, in the late afternoon, it is worth looking in on the fish market where every day after the boats come in at 5 ish, they auction off the day’s catch for restaurants, fishmongers and supermarkets.

There is a proper viewing gallery but we always just stick our heads in and watch from outside. Only the buyers seem to know what on earth is going on but I don’t think you have to worry about scratching your nose here!

There is a bar called the Clam (The Almeja) just in the port where you can sit outside and have a drink and see the boats come in– the restaurant is also very good for later on – no-where really gets going for food until 8.30 or 9 o’clock though.  At this time of year, when the light is beautiful at dusk, it is the perfect place for a sundowner.
