Boho Beach Bar Playa Padre burnt to the ground in a spectacular fire yesterday afternoon.

Fire ripped through the popular beach bar, located on El Cable beach, around 7pm. Local residents where quick to call the emergency services, who were on the scene within minutes, but little could be done to save the thatched establishment, which was closed at the time.

One of the most fashionable beach clubs in Marbella, Playa Padre was opened in 2017 by actress Pamela Anderson, while Vikings star Katheryn Winnick visited last year.

Co-owned by Global Gift Founder María Bravo and her partner Nicolás Escánez, Play Padre was due to open this Easter for the 2019 season.

The cause of the fire, which left a plume of smoke over Marbella, is still unknown. Police have not not ruled out any hypothesis, and are waiting for the results of an investigation.
