  • Could anybody give me some information about restaurants in the LG/PS/PDLA area that cater for coeliacs? My wife and I will be arriving in LG on 12th January 2010 for an 8 week stay and I would like to know if there are any restaurants in the aforementioned area who would provide Gluten Free meals? I would also like to know a bit more about the coastal path that links the 3 towns, as in where does it start and end and if any of your contributors could provide any photographs or a map showing the route of the path I'd be more than grateful. Many thanks.

  • Best thing to do is browse this site. There are many maps and local info available. Google Earth allows you to zoom in on the area in good detail. There is a path which links Los Gigs with Puerto Satiago leading from Crab Island to the foot of the hill of Calle De La Hondura. The path then continues behind the Hotel Barcelo and comes out at Spanish Corner. If you're feeling fit you can rejoin the path further on past Playa De La Arena and walk all the way to San Juan.

  • Regarding your enquiry about gluton free meals, a lot of restaurants will provide these if you ask when booking. I have friends who spend all winter here and she has this condition. Certainly Glynis at Tajinaste resaurant always provides her with these meals. However they eat in lots of places all through winter and she doesnt really have a problem. the restaurants are mostly very helpful. Sorry to be vague I shall try and ask her for specific restaurants and will post again when I get this info.

  • My friends in Uk have e mailed me the following. When they are here they have no problem with dietary requirements at San Francisco Sporting Club as they only use corn flour. They also say Amazonia is good too and Casa Mon in Alcala. Also Tajinaste Restaurant is good and these restaurants are all accommodating. Others they say you just have to ask before booking. Hope this helps a bit.

  • Hi Chrissi and Jambo,
                Thanks for the reply. I've had a look at the LG/PS/PDLA area on Google Earth and the path seems to be marked out well enough on it. I have one more question regarding the coastal path and that is, can you walk right around the coast from the public swimming pools near the Pablado Marinero to PDLA? I've noticed that there seems to be a path and steps going along the coast from where you get access to the natural salt water swimming pools on Crab Island at the end of Calle Habiscus, but can you continue on towards Calle de La Honduras from there? I saw that there's no way to get around to the Hotel Barcelo Santiago except by walking down along Calle de la Honduras and then rejoining the path at the side of the hotel?

    Chrissi, thanks for the info on the restaurants in regard to obtaining gluten free meals. It's the 'missus' who is coeliac not me.

    Any further info in regard to both subjects would be appreciated if and when this becomes available. Once again, many thanks to you both. Looking forward to coming over in January and you never know, but we might bump into each other during the time we're there.

    Hi another restaurant to add to your list for a gluten meal is, the Chicken Shack in Puerto Santiago, always guaranteed  great food, the most reasonable prices and you will be entertained by the proprietor, the one and only Chicken Legs, a very popular place for you to visit, I hope you both have a great holiday
