Malaga’s beaches are privileged to be located alongside a grand city with all that this signifies in inherent services and attractions. With an extension of 14 kilometres, which is only exceeded in destinations such as Marbella and Estepona, they have excellent communications, both by public transport and by private means and they are separated from the urban traffic by magnificent esplanades that make 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 our beaches. In the one same city, you can delight in the genius of Picasso or visit a monumental ensemble such as the Alcazaba-Gibralfaro-Roman Theatre, and at the same time enjoy some great beaches where you can relax and rest.
La Malagueta, La Misericordia, San Andrés, Campo de Golf / San Julián, El Palo or Pedregalejo are just a few of the 16 beaches that make up the city’s coastline, and which are equipped with 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 or Campo de Golf, (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.
Furthermore, you will have no difficulty in finding many “Chiringuitos” (beach cafes) and restaurants along the esplanades. These are true sanctuaries of great traditional Malaga cuisine, where “pescaito frito” (fried little fish) and barbecued sardines on a stick reign supreme.
Take a walk down to our beaches and sunbathe or practise some sport, 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.
