Eat Sardines in Somo

A seaside plan.

If you are in the city during the summer, you should explore the other side of the bay. You can get there by car or on a traditional ferry, called 'reginas' after the company that runs the service. After enjoying a day at the beach on the huge Somo sandbank, you can go to Pedreña for some fish. There are plenty of roadside terraces. All kinds of pan-fried and chargrilled fish are served here. From calamari and squid to different types of sea bream. However, the most typical thing to order is grilled sardines.
