Welcome to my Puerto Duquesa blog

I've been visiting Puerto Duquesa three or four times a year for the past 20 years and have seen the area change enormously in that time. Where once there were dirt tracks and open countryside, there are now two lane motorways and apartment complexes. And whilst the area has changed and grown dramatically, it has still retained its small town, or should that be 'small marina' feel, which keeps me, and thousands others, coming back year after year.

Since I am currently in the USA it is a slightly odd time to start a blog about Puerto Duquesa, but the reason for doing so is simple - I may actually have some time to write some stuff! Most of the things I'm going to write about are things I like doing in the area or places I like going. Clearly I am not going to be able to cover everything, but hopefully I can give you a taste of what makes this such a special place and give you some ideas for your next trip.

If you can't immediately find what you are looking for, please scroll down and look in the blog archive (click the triangles to expand the list of articles). You might also want to start with these articles: Puerto Duquesa: the basics, Favourite (best?) restaurants in Puerto Duquesa, Puerto Duquesa beaches and Holiday accommodation in Puerto Duquesa. Want to get to know the area? Try A walking tour of Puerto Duquesa.

I welcome contributions, comments, criticisms and...well...praise.

If you want to link to me or you want me to link to you, that'll work too. If I think you're a good local company and you're prepared to part with a few euros, you might be lucky enough to advertise on the blog (which, fyi, is page rank 3 on Google - just type in puerto duquesa at google.com).

Thanks / Gracias

Puerto Duquesa Celebrities

For those of you who haven't seen him around, Keith Floyd has visited Puerto Duquesa on number of occasions and I believe he owns a property in the area. A legendary chef, Mr Floyd is making a number of appearances at the Roman Oasis this summer where he will show off his skills and cook up a mediterranean inspired treat. Tickets are 125 euros and he is performing on the following dates:

June: Tues 19, Thurs 21, Sat 23, Tues 26, Thurs 28 and Saturday 30.

I visited the Floyed Cookery School on the 30th of June. It was an absolute hoot. The great man himself is a little bit older and frailer than i remember him on tv, but his razor sharp wit is still intact.

Glad to hear it was good. Hopefully he'll do it next year as well as I'd be really keen to go. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
