  • Work has started to prepare the land for the seaside restaurant on Calahonda beach

Nerja town hall has put a contract out to tender for the construction and management of a new chiringuito (beach restaurant) on Calahonda beach, next to the Balcón de Europa.

Work has already started to prepare the plot of land, which the town hall acquired in 2017 from a private owner for the sum of one million euros.

Prior to that, in 2014, the Papagayo chiringuito had been ordered to close due to complaints by neighbours.

The owners of the new chiringuito will have to pay the town hall 20,000 euros per year over a 25-year lease period.
