    Garrucha is a beautiful and lively fishing town that still retains much of its original charm. Over the last few years it has become a popular tourist destination. Its tourist slogan is “Garrucha, Sun and Seafood”; the town is famous for the quality of its large red prawns, o­nly fished in the local waters. Garrucha has a strong fishing industry, its main source of income, with a large port for both commercial and leisure pursuits.

    Garrucha has a great selection of restaurants and bars with many excellent seafood restaurants found along the seafront serving the fresh catch of the day. They are supplied with fresh fish from nearby port, if you find yourself down o­n the seafront at dawn you will experience the typically Mediterranean sight of a flotilla of small fishing boats setting out to sea. Later the fishermen host a daily fish auction each afternoon at a quayside fish market.

    Two buildings of interest in Garrucha are the Parish Church de San Joaquin and the Hermitage de la Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Garrucha. Every year o­n the 16th July the fishermen pass the chapel o­n their way to the sea in a spirited procession.

    One of the pleasures of Garrucha is taking a lovely evening stroll around the bay. A palm tree lined promenade framed by white marble balustrades spans the length of the town, almost 2km. There are landscaped areas to sit and relax whilst watching the sunset over the Mediterranean sea and delightful play areas for the children. A stroll along here takes in three successive ports of Garrucha the sports port, fishing port and the commercial port

    Garrucha is well known for its magnificent, golden sandy beaches, stretching as far as the eye can see, for several kilometres. The beach opposite the town centre is the only blue flag in town beach in Europe. As you continue past Garrucha there are a series of superb recently developed beaches, covering 8km.
