    I’m sure there is one – if you exit the Cucharas Shopping centre and turn left and start walking up the hill – on your left – there’s a big car park and a dental practice – its near there –

    Some of the bars do it as well I believe ?

    There used to be a second hand book shop in one of the little streets running parallel to cucharas beach. In between beach and main road. Sorry can’t remember the name and not used for few years.

    Also your apartment reception may do it. Nazaret did when last there.

    Joe is right. Turn left opposite the Cabrera Medina car hire office on the main road into Calle Del Marrajo (that’s what it says on Google) and go past the dental practice. The Book Shop is just past there on the left. You could get to it from the opposite direction from Las Cucharas beach

      Sorry. Should. have said “just past there on the right”.

    If you are near Playa Bastain (next to Sausilitos), there is a second hand shop there, Costa Less, that sells loads of second-hand books for about 1 Euro. They are open most days (not sure about Sunday) between 10 – 2

    Thanks for everyone’s suggestions, stay near to Playa Bastian and know the little shop there so will pay it a visit on our next visit (November). Bring it on!!!

    The book shop that used to be near Las Cucharas beach has now closed, but the people who bought it now have the Coronas Newsagents in front of the Coronas Hotel and have a large selection of books there. I agree with the other Sue that Costa Less also has a great selection of books and they’re cheaper.
