Beach bars to go avant-garde

STYLISH: Designs have been made by Juan Carlos Laguia, Nieves Pastor and Enrique Martin architects.

UP TO nine brand-new beach bars are being built in Malaga city beaches. Two will be set on Guadalmar Beach, whereas seven will be placed in La Caleta and La Malagueta. The beach bar’s external layout, presented by the Malaga Beach Council and the Association of Costa del Sol Beach Businessmen, features a modern design that highly differs from the traditionally more casual Spanish beach bar.

The Guadalmar bars will feature a colourful porcelain wave-shaped roof. While the ones in La Malagueta and La Caleta are inspired in the typical Mediterranean white facades and flat roofs.

The Businessmen Association will invest an average €400,000 on each bar. They estimate this initiative will create around 100 job positions for construction, while the bar & restaurants will be operated by a staff of 90, when finished. This is estimated for earlier this summer, the association’s president Manuel Villafaina said.

These future beach bars will be built following the latest coastal construction rules. Currently, there are a total of 107 beach bars that have been granted the official license, out of around 400 along the Costa del Sol, Villafaina reported.

      I guess this news has two sides: building new attractive beach houses may attract more people and support local economy.
      At the same time the existing beach bars and restaurants struggle to survive. The market has been oversaturated for years. Now that the crisis is so steep, Malaga authority should clear up the mess. This is the right time to diminish the number of the beach venues, supporting the good ones.
      In line with the Costa Regulations Malaga and Torremolinos should move many of the chiringuitos, as there are so many that build in the sand area and the distance between them is too short.
      In the end tourists tend to avoid destinations that are over-commercialized. Guadalmar is the only part of suburban Malaga coast where there are no chiringuitos or any other commercial activity. Untill now..
