SabrinaSummerville Says: The newly built Marina Rubicon is a picturesque 20 minute walk along the seafrot from Playa Blanca town.Crowded with small and medium sailcraft that bob up and down in crystal clear waters, the marina is also a haven for hungry fish and squawking gulls. Sitting at any of the...
SabrinaSummerville Says: My first words of advice are - don't be put off if your initial reception at Casa Pedro is rather cool to the point of rudeness. It's worth your while to stick it out.The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and was easy to spot, situated as it is at the end of the beach...
SabrinaSummerville Says: La Casa Roja sets itself apart from the mundane in every way.It was recommended by our hotel, but I would have chosen it anyway from the fascinating architectural appearance to the mouth watering menu exhibited outside to the location right over the marina.We hadn't planned...
If you're a girly shoe-lover, like me, you'll adore this shop.
I happened upon it while rambling aimlessly (which is sometimes the best thing to do on holiday) along the seafront. My eye was captured by the most wonderfully pretty ladies shoes I had ever seen.
On wandering into the shop I discovered bags, scarves, some costume jewelry, and other accessories to make you look like a princess, even when wearing the plainest outfit.
The shoes look as if they're hand-made, and most of them are adorned with hundreds of tiny flowers or elaborate beading.
I came away with just two pairs - one pair of pink sandles where the straps are comprised of tiny pink rosebuds; the other pair are silver with daintily dangling silver beads along the ankle straps and, of course, a matching bag.
I wanted to buy so much more though. They come in myriad colours - turquoise, lemon, red, orange, bright blue, then the more commonplace colours like black and white. But even the monochrome shoes look spectacular.
The majority of shoe shops stock mainly sensible shoes, boots, and sandles, with a sprinkling of glamour models. This store is the exception, as every single pair is a work of art.
Bring a big suitcase, a healthy credit card, and be prepared to spoil yourself.
What to buy: Shoes!
What to pay: About ?200 - ?250 per pair.

Address: On the promenade facing the ocean.
Favorite thing: I really enjoyed my stay in Playa Blanca... first of all because the hotel chosen was away from the hustle and bustle... and secondly because the hustle and bustle after all was quite "normal". I visited at Xmas - not exactly low-season, and the place was peaceful enough to be enjoyed and not to be caught in crowds. I would recommend Playa Blanca to families - or even to couples who don't mind NOT having a wild nightlife. And besides, it's not as windy wa people say...
