The best beaches in Malaga

Malaga is renowned for its beautiful beaches, often characterized by golden sand, clear waters, and excellent amenities. Here are some of the most notable ones:

La Malagueta: This is the most popular and easiest to access, given its central location right next to Malaga's city centre. It’s very well equipped, with a wide range of services including restaurants, bars, and water sports facilities.

Pedregalejo: Located to the east of the city, Pedregalejo was once a traditional fishing village. It’s characterized by its small coves and old fishing boats on the sand. The beachfront is lined with 'chiringuitos' (beach bars) offering traditional local seafood.

El Palo: Adjacent to Pedregalejo, El Palo is another traditional fishing village with similar charm. The beach is well-equipped and also features numerous chiringuitos serving delicious local dishes.

La Caleta: This beach is less crowded than La Malagueta and is very popular among locals. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the water is generally calm and shallow, which makes it great for families with children.

Playa de la Misericordia: This beach is located to the west of the city and is one of the longest in Malaga. There is a pleasant seaside promenade lined with several restaurants and bars. It’s also a popular place for watching the sunset.

Playa de Las Acacias: This beach is in the Pedregalejo district and is known for its calm waters, making it a great choice for families. It’s also home to several beach clubs and chiringuitos.

Playa de Guadalmar: This beach is close to Malaga's airport and is the only one in the city where naturism is officially allowed. It's also popular with kite surfers.

Banos del Carmen: Not so much a beach as a coastal landmark, this historic spot east of Malaga city center offers a small strip of sand and a beachfront restaurant in a setting that's full of old-world charm.

Remember that beaches can get crowded in the summer months, especially in July and August, so try to get there early to secure a good spot. And don’t forget your sun protection!
