Nerja council has once again extended the catering concessions for Burriana bars for the eighth time. Last November, the town hall announced a change to the licences it issues and stated that they would not be automatically renewed as they once were and that requirements were to be met before any decision was taken.
Burriana beach, in Nerja, is home
to some of the most famous chiringuitos,
or beach bars/ restaurants, in the Malaga Province.
The last time they were officially awarded long term concessions was in 1999, which was for a period of 10 years even though many of these establishments have been in business for 50 years.
Some popular restaurants near the beach front have been open all year round to cater for the holiday makers that arrive regularly in Nerja even in the quieter season.
Many returning visitors will be pleased to see their favourite bars and dining places open as usual to welcome them on their next holiday.
