La Mirada Pool, La Zenia, Spain


La Mirada Restaurante in La Zenia has always been one of our favourites. From coffee's in the winter over looking the beach to lounging by the poolside in the summer, it is always one of our go-to places and to date it's never one to disappoint.

Today we headed down to the pool to have a bit of a 'holiday' day which was very much needed especially after our recent not so great hotel stay in Torre Pacheco (see the post here).

Before entering the pool you buy your wristband from the bar opposite the pool, €9 for a sunbed and pool, €5 for pool only.

Then relax for the rest of the day!

Pedro the pool guy is excellent. He's always so friendly, helpful and very efficient.

To our surprise the pool was very quiet. It's coming to the end of the summer holiday's but we didn't expect things to start quietening down until next week.

The food at La Mirada has always been consistently good and such a varied menu. We went for a little tapas today, Calamari alla romana for Mark and magra con tomate (pork in tomato) and patata fritas for me. With some alioli too, Delicious!


Located at La Zenia beach next door to the Servigroup hotel it is a popular place for tourists, locals and expats alike. We find it great value for money where you really get that holiday vibe and go away feeling relaxed, happy and looking forward to the next visit.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
