Málaga’s beaches enjoy a privileged location alongside a great city with all that this means in terms of services and attractions. There are 14 kilometres of beaches in the city; they can all be easily reached and are all equipped with all types of high-quality services. In general, the beaches are separated from the urban traffic by a network of wide esplanades, making them true havens of peace and oases of tranquillity.
Think of the advantage of being able to combine, in one destination, a wealth of monuments, museums, culture and gastronomy with the possibility of stretching out in the sun or simply taking a walk along the beach. In the same city, you can delight in the genius of Picasso or visit a fabulous set of attractions such as the Alcazaba, Gibralfaro and the Roman Theatre, and at the same time enjoy some great beaches where you can relax and rest.
La Malagueta, La Misericordia, San Andrés, San Julián, El Palo or Pedregalejo are just a few of the 16 beaches that make up the city’s coastline, and which have all the necessary services and facilities to make them comfortable, accessible and safe.
You will be able to choose between the urban and lively beaches of La Malagueta, Pedregalejo or San Andrés, or the more out of town and secluded beaches such as Guadalmar (with a nudist area) or you can even choose some of the little bays with particular charm such as Baños del Carmen or Peñón del Cuervo.
In addition, you will stumble across numerous beach bars and restaurants along the promenades; these are true sanctuaries of good traditional Málaga cuisine where "fried fish" and skewered sardines reign supreme.
Take a walk down to our beaches and sunbathe or practise your favourite sport or walk, or just sit and take in the view. There are many ways of enjoying them. And remember that a trip to our beaches is great any time of the year.
