El Balneario - Los Baños del Carmen

Spanish Steakhouse
The Baños del Carmen, as the locals know it, is one of those Málaga icons dear to the heart of every Boquerón. It's called the baths because it was built in 1918 as an opulent cast iron pavilion with a bathing promenade. It's the original Málaga beach club. It isn't so popular for bathing these days as the access to the sea isn't what it was, and erosion has taken its toll on the seafront, but the building itself has undergone full renovation recently and now is one of the most charming and characterful beach-side restaurants in the whole province. The setting is ideal and gorgeous, right at the end of the long Malagueta curving beach. It sits perched in its Edwardian spleandour just centimetres above the tide, a truly waterfront restaurant. Winter storms can be unkind to it, but the other 364 days of the year it is idyllic! Here you can sit and watch the sun set over the old city and port, and take tapas or raciones, eat from the Gaucho style BBQ, take a cocktail, or just sip a beer and marvel at the whole scene. Few places are this enchanting in Málaga, or anywhere in the province. The food is generous and traditional, and there is frequently live entertainment. And you can even take a plunge if you really want to.
