Craft Beer Festival in Mijas

08Apr

Can you think of something better tan a fresh beer?

Although it is an alcoholic drink drinking beer in moderation apart from calming our thirst can also have a positive impact in our health.

Beer is 93% water, so it helps us stay hydratated. It is also low in sodium and high in potasium. It helps us to prevent cardiovascular diseases and it contains good cholesterol. It is high in vitamin B and contains minerals which help us to prevent bone and neurodegenerative diseases. It mitigates ageing and in the case of women it helps to reduce the symptoms of menopause.

As you can see there are many good reasons to have a beer, so if you are one of those who really love having a good glass of this bubbly drink while enjoying some fresh air you will certainly like the plan we are going to suggest this week.

This week, from Friday the 12th to Sunday the 14th of April, La Cala de Mijas will hold a craft beer festival.

This craft beer festival is called “Birra & Art” and it will be set in the Boulevard of La Cala. On Friday and Saturday its opening times are from 12:00 P.M till 01:00 A.M and on Sunday, as it is its last day, it will be open from 12:00 P.M till 9:00 P.M.

There, apart from drinking some great craft beer, you will have the chance to have fun with the entertainment as there will be a DJ playing some great music.  

If this weekend you are on holiday with us at Hotel Yaramar, your hotel in Fuengirola, and you fancy a good beer do not hesitate to visit La Cala de Mijas… Cheers!!

New photography exhibition in Fuengirola

01Apr

This week, on the blog of Hotel Yaramar, your hotel en Fuengirola, we would like to recommend you a great free photography exhibition.  

This exhibition is called “Back to the same” and it contains 45 photos by famous photographer Fernando Bayona, most of them in large format.

“Back to the same” is held in our local museum, Museo de la Ciudad, in the centre of Fuengirola, very close to the Town Hall and Bioparc.

Fernando Bayona is a well-known artist in the photography and art scene and in his photos the backgrounds and locations are as important as the characters that appear in them.

Bayona has had exhibitions in cities as important as Miami, Nueva York, Berlin or Barcelona, so it is very fortunate that we can visit one of his superb exhibitions here in Fuengirola.

“Back to the same” can be visited for free until Sunday 28th of April from Monday to Friday from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00A.M. a 2:00 P.M, and from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M.

No matter if you are a professional photographer or if you just have fun taking pictures in your spare time, we recommend you not to miss one of the most fabulous and unique free exhibitions in Costa del Sol.

Enjoy!
