Market, music, food, drinks
If it's August then it must be the Sunset Market at Puerto Portals. A lovely evening out is guaranteed for the 4th year on the trot as upscale marina Puerto Portals invites us all to its now famous Sunset Market every Wednesday and Thursday evening in August.
Starting at 18:00, which gives us all plenty of time for browsing the stalls – all 22 of them – arranged in serried rank along the port's boulevard before the sun does actually set. You'll find lots of well made artisan products made by local craftsmen which would make ideal and unique gifts for yourself or friends and family back home.
If you've got kids in tow, there are plenty of activities to keep them occupied while you shop, and stuff for adults – swing classes for example – before the evening entertainment begins. Wednesday nights are DJ powered, whilst Thursday is live music night with Reggae, Soul, Blues and Swing.
Finally, even though the port is well served with bars and restaurants, you can wine and dine in the market area courtesy of the food trucks and caravans serving coffees, cocktails and street food.
See you there?
