Bike ride along the Costa del Sol: Malaga - Part 2

We had perfect weather on our last day in Malaga- Sunny, clear skies and 80 degrees. Malaga has a beachfront path that is around 12 miles, so Brett and I rented bikes and spent the day trolling up the beach, stopping every so often to refresh with a cold beer and a few tapas.
 We stopped to relax on a secluded beach towards the end of the path, and sat underneath a palm tree to get out of the sun for a bit. My Irish skin does not lend nicely to direct sun for prolonged periods of time.
For lunch, we stopped at this great spot just towards the end of the path, El Tintero. This restaurant is in many tourist books, but there are still a lot of locals here, as it is a bit of a hike from the Malaga port where all the tourists stay. We ate everything from grilled octopus, to paella, fried fish of some type. The restaurant is kind of like Chinese dim sum, in that waiters circle the restaurant carrying various dishes, and you get can choose from anything they are coming around with.  Unfortunately no pictures of this place, but I thought I would mention it anyway.  
Then on the way back down the coast, we stopped to eat some of the traditional grilled sardines.
Sorry for the awkwardness of this picture, we had quite a few people staring at us, trying to eat these guys.
And since this is my last post on Malaga, here are some of my favourite pictures we took while in Malaga:
And no trip to Spain would be complete without churros...
