Be like a local

At first sight you will not recognise the establishment because it doesn’t have any sign with the name on it.  But don’t be afraid, you will find it by following a line of people waiting outside a bar with big brown doors. There it its.

We recommend you to go early because  it fills very quickly. Arround 12.30h is the perfect time. The best thing is to eat a light breakfast early in the morning and then go to the beach. When it’s arround 11h- 11.30h take a shower at the beach showers and then go straight to ‘La Cova fumada’.
