Playa de La Malagueta, Malaga

3.4
#4 of 41 in Outdoors in Malaga
Just beside the main port, Playa de La Malagueta offers you a great place for sunning and swimming. While the water here isn’t the clearest, this is a low-key beach that isn’t typically crowded. The waves here are moderate, so you can enjoy some water sports as well. Beach chairs and parasols are available for rent, and a long walkway runs along the sand. Palm trees, some of which house parakeets, provide shady spots to cool off. See Playa de La Malagueta and all Malaga has to offer by arranging your trip with our Malaga itinerary planning tool .

  • Málaga is beautifully located by the sea. But also at the port. If you expect a romantic, quiet, clean beach, you can visit quiet the Malequeta times. With the Muelluno, a kind of outdoor shopping rating Mall beach is connected more or less with the city. Sand Pebble Beach, water with just the quality you can expect near a port, colorful umbrella, a few restaurants... just really Spanish Beach feeling. It is worth at least to the refresh in the sea! And if you have more time, the beach town just runs away until it is rural, quiet and good fish in simple beach restaurants is served. It comes back with a city bus.

  • If I have to judge the sea of the big city, I definitely preferred the one in Valencia to Malaga. The beach is poorly maintained and is not even beautiful.

  • There is plenty of things to do outside of water but if you are going to the beach to refresh yourself and swim in the sea then it is a bit of a let down. Water is muddy and dirty with plenty of trash...  more »

  • Not the clearest water and also some jellyfish floating around, but the beach has such a positive vibe. It matches the city and landscape, perfect to go for a swim and sunbathing. There are also showers to wash the salt off.
  • Must go place; long calm beach, nice sand, perfect watter even in octomber! The watterfront.......beautifull and full of restaurants.
  • Fantastic place to be with family. Good public facility for swimming in the see. Very nice restaurant and bar on the beach. Grill seafood is aeesome.
  • Relaxing beach. Not very crowded but the water is quite cold.

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
