THE TUNA FISH ROUTE AT CONIL DE LA FRONTERA (2 hours drive from Marbella) IS BACK FROM 10TH MAY TO 10TH JUNE 2014

Tuna fish is caught at Conil de la Frontera (Cadiz, Andalucia) in May when the first tuna fish come to the Mediterranean coast to lay eggs.
This is when its meat is the tastiest and most appreciated; a true delicacy that is fished using the same technique as two thousand years ago: tunny nets—a traditional and spectacular art of fishing.

A large part of the economies of Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate and Conil de la Frontera are based on fishing this fish and they celebrate the arrival of the wild tuna fish, the most delicious, most versatile and, of course, tastiest with fairs and festivals.

Easter Week in Andalucia

Holy Week, Semana Santa, in Andalucia is an event that literally transforms towns and cities across this region. Processions of elaborately decorated floats with Jesus and Mary statues, groups of pointy-hood wearing Nazarenos (penitents), and shrill brass bands, walk slowly through the streets, from their parish church to the cathedral and back. It is an amazing experience, and a great time to come to Andalucia if you want to imbibe some deeply-held traditions that have less to do with religion than with social groupings and rituals. Many people avoid this time of year to visit Andalucia, but if you come prepared, both for the crowds and the inflated prices, then it is well worth the effort. You will never see anything like it again.

TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT ON THE QUINTESSENTIAL BOHEMIAN CORNER OF SOUTHERN EUROPE – CAÑOS DE MECA (Only 2 hours drive from Marbella)

There are some places that just can’t be found anywhere else in the world and Caños de Meca, in Barbate is one of them. This hamlet is located in the South of Andalucia, along the Cadiz coastline and became a focal point for the hippie and bohemian movement of the 1960s. Today, it remains a haven for those in search of ‘karma’, the tranquillity of endless beaches, crystal clear waters, nudist enclaves, all set in the Breña Natural Park, offering vegetation consisting mostly of pinyon pines falling growing just beside the sea.

TEN ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES THAT WILL TRANSPORT YOU TO ANDALUCIA’S ROMAN EMPIRE
 
Andalucia’s artistic wealth and rich heritage is a product of the melting pot of cultures that have lived on these lands throughout the centuries. You can find vestiges of the region’s ancestors in every corner of southern Spain that help us imagine what it was like during its different historical eras. One era of splendour, known as “Bética,” was the Roman Empire. If you travel through Andalucia, you must visit the archaeological sites of the early years of our history. Theatres, baths, aqueducts and necropolises are perfectly conserved the length and breadth of the country. Don’t miss these ten Roman sites we recommend in southern Spain that will transport you to the heart and magnificence of this great empire that conquered the Mediterranean.

Just enjoyed a four night stay at the Fuerte Marbella which was my second visit to this hotel and had the best time again! The location is perfect and the place has such a good feel to it. Very relaxed and the service is just fantastic! I love this place and can't wait to book up another visit soon!

"We stayed in the Fuerte Marbella for 3 nights in March. We found the rooms to be comfortable, clean and well presented and the hotel was conveniently located near the Old Town and it's range of restaurants and facing the beach to the rear. The weather was less impressive but the covered pool and hotel facilities kept us entertained on one particularly wet day. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and staff were friendly and courteous. We'd certainly stay again!"

The Fuerta Marbella Hotel is a very nice hotel, very friendly staff and excellent service. This made our holiday perfect. We will certainly come back and recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I have stayed at the Fuerte Hotel on a number of occasions. We found the quality of the services and the location to excellent on the first occasion and the standards have been maintained over the years. We have not had a bad experience and have greatly enjoyed our holidays, hence the return visits. Our most recent holiday was for 10 days in May 2013. Despite unusually inclement weather, we had an excellent stay. It is certainly an hotel to which we will return and which we can recommend without reservation.

My wife and I have been staying at the El Fuerte for a week every year for about the past ten years and every visit has been a very pleasant experience. This year we were there for the second week in September and I think this was probably the best holiday there ever. The reason for this was probably the climate which could not have been better, and the fact that this year we had a full sea view room (we usually have a side view) and were allocated room 134 which is one of the larger ones in the new block; a superb room with a wonderful view over the Mediterranean. The staff in the hotel were as helpful and friendly as usual and the breakfast and evening buffets were up to the usual high Fuerte standards. One of the pleasures of the Fuerte is just sitting in the shade of the pine trees on the terrace with a drink looking out to sea. One minor quibble is that the service there may be a little slow, but who cares if you are waiting in such an agreeable location. We are already planning next year’s visit.
