THE javeamigos.com CHIRINGUITO SURVEY - THE RESULTS
It's back by popular demand! After a year's absence, the javeamigos.com Chiringuito Survey returns for its sixth edition, a critical look at the five main beach bars of Xbia which line the seafront between the port and the Arenal each summer between May and October. In our survey, we're not looking for the most popular or the trendiest, current in-vogue place to have a drink or two or indeed the cheapest although cost is taken into consideration. What we have been looking for is the one beach bar that made us think "I really don't want to leave this place!" - essentially the venue that really made us feel comfortable and want to while away a few hours by the sea.
