One thing you didn't know about El Dedo beach

Did you know that this beach is called the beach of Finger following an anecdote with King Alfonso XII?

King Alfonso XII visited the city after the earthquake of 1884. His Majesty was invited to eat espetos and when he was about to do so with a knife and fork, Migué (the owner of the restaurant) approached the king and said: "Your Majesty, with your fingers", since then the beach has been known as the Finger Beach in Malaga.
