If you prefer to shop at the market there is one in La Cala (15 minutes away by car) every Wednesday and Saturday and one at Calypso on a Thursday. During the summer season the shops all open on Sunday but outside that time you will need to use the mini shops at the petrol stations and the OpenCor supermarket chain – one of which is located at the entrance of Riviera .
Really you are spoilt for choice; locally just along by the supermarket there is a top class Pizzeria "Les Terraces" serving great pizzas and pastas, an Argentinian Steak House and La Venta del Golf, a fine Spanish restaurant serving great charcoal grilled meat dishes.
