With summer well and truly here and everyone heading to the beach, where better to turn our ‘sustainable’ eye than to one of the last unspoilt coastlines in Spain. El Palmar, on the Costa de la Luz, has so far avoided the overdevelopment that we’ve seen on other parts of Spain’s 1,000km of coastline, and many people would like to keep it that way, as a last reminder of what natural coastlines looked like. Unfortunately, the area does not have nature reserve protection, and other … Continue reading

Mmmmmmaking chocolate

It’s a dream come true – making your own chocolate. A dream that is offered to everyone, young and old alike, at the world’s smallest chocolate factory, Mayan Monkey Mijas, perched in the picturesque white village.

I was there purely for research … Continue reading
