Vamos a la Playa is the ninth episode of The Amazing Race 34.

Story[]

Teams embark on a megaleg in Malaga, Spain, where racers become grill masters and brave rough waters.

Route Markers[]

Teams were flown to Málaga, Spain, and began the next leg at the Castillo de Gibralfaro.

The order of departure from Castillo de Gibralfaro are as follows:

  1. Derek & Claire (8:00 am)
  2. Luis & Michelle (8:00 am)
  3. Emily & Molly (8:15 am)
  4. Marcus & Michael (8:15 am)
  5. Aubrey & David (8:15 am)

Teams must make their way on foot to Plaza de la Merced, where they would find their next clue.

"Who will be the master of pieces?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must observe a nearby example of Pablo Picasso's painting Three Musicians, then with the aid of an assistant, arrange six large glass panels into a frame that, when arranged in the correct order, would recreate the painting. Once they have successfully recreated the painting, the artist would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Málaga Cathedral, where they would find bicycles that they must ride to the El Cubo structure at the Port of Málaga, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Fish Fry
Teams must ride their bicycles to Playa de El Palo, where they must skewer and roast 18 sardines to make a traditional dish called espetos, then serve them in three plates of six sardines each. Once they have cooked three plates of espetos to the judge's satisfaction, he would give teams their next clue.

Aubrey & David, Derek & Claire, Emily & Molly, and Marcus & Michael chose this task.

Choice B: Sailboat Supply
Teams must ride their bicycles to Playa de El Palo, where they must pick up a cooler of ice from a nearby delivery truck, then inflate a standup paddleboard, which they must use to transport the cooler and eight lifejackets all at once to a boat anchored offshore. Once they have completed the delivery and returned the empty cooler to the delivery truck, they would receive their next clue.

Only Luis & Michelle chose this task.
