Marina Alta are a boozy bunch


A STUDY from the Spanish Federation of Hospitality (FEHR) and Coca Cola has lifted the lid on which Marina Alta municipalities boast the most bars.

Teulada-Moraira, Calpe, Javea and Denia – in that order – top the list.

The study compares the number of bars to the number of inhabitants (per thousand).

There are 101,397 bars across Spain, representing an average of 2.8 per thousand inhabitants.

In Teulada-Moraira, there are nearly six (5.91) bars per thousand inhabitants, in Calpe and Javea there are exactly 4 and in Denia there are 3.62.

Benitachell has only 0.97 bars per thousand inhabitants whilst Els Poblets and Benissa top 2 with 2.16 and 2.27 respectively.

Ondara exceeds the national average with 3.16 bars per thousand inhabitants whilst Pedreguer (1.61), Gata (1.55) and Pego (1.48) fall short.
