Create an itinerary including Playa de La Malagueta
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.

  • It's an urban beach, so if you have visions of white sands as far as the eye can see, this isn't your place. But if you're in the city and you need a quick beach break, or you want to go see the sea....  more

  • Very beautiful beach located 5-10 minutes walk from Malaga Centre. It is very clean and well maintained. Lots of restaurants, cafes and nearby facilities available for use. Very spacious area too, good place to jog and do exercise. Plenty seating area available and small kiosks for drinks etc.
  • Nice, spacious and mostly clean beach (for August). Depending on how close you are to the port, the water changes it clearness and cleanness. Its temperature also varies from 16°C to 27°C depending on areas. Parasols/lounges are 10€ at most places (remember to bring cash). Sand is nice, not the finest but soft enough for my taste. Would go back!
  • Was only able to spend a few hours here but I was already checking prices to see how much it would be to come back! Such a great experience
  • Only walked around a bit but the location is beautiful
  • Beautiful beach which was pretty much empty except for the morning runners. Loads of deck chairs. Warm enough in December to just chill out
