Just a 20 minute drive north of Playa Blanca is the stunning village of El Golfo. The fish restaurants in El Golfo are considered amongst the best in the Canaries, and once visited, it’s not hard to see why.
With the beautiful setting overlooking the sea (where you will often see the fishermen clambering to catch the fish for your meal) there is a good selection to be had.
El Golfo restaurants take their reputation very seriously, and only serve the freshest of local ingredients. Don’t always expect a menu here – as often you will be told “meat or fish”. Trust them in their choices, and you will not be disappointed.
El Golfo is fantastic for lazy lunches, but it is at sunset when the village really comes into its own. Sitting almost at the water’s edge, with platters of fabulous food… and glasses of something chilled, local, and full of flavour. It’s a personal favourite of us here at Canary Nightlife
