Playa de La Malagueta, Malaga

3.5
#4 of 42 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 .

  • Malaga is a fairly large city and one so long beach so close to the city centre is a great asset. Clean, cleaned often when we were there, easy to fit.

  • Despite being close to the tourist centre, the Playa de la Malagueta never it is crowded but it is better to use the bus to get here or do a 20 minute walk from the city centre because it is difficult to park at the beach. You can tour the promenade along the almost 1 km long sandy beach. Popular with locals and tourists, this beach in the second largest in Andalusia is attractive not only by its proximity to the old town of Malaga, with its numerous attractions such as the Cathedral Church, the shopping street of Calle Larios and the Picasso Museum, but also due to its wide range of evening activities. It has many local restaurants (bars) with cold drinks and tasty marine specialties fried or grilled, many areas of giving children lots of variety and game where you can do exercise. In the morning and in the evening, it is ideal to put shoes to run or get on your bike and exercise while enjoying the wonderful atmosphere along the beautiful promenade. Beach la Malagueta showers and free toilets and wheelchair-accessible to the beach tickets. To the West is the great commercial port of Malaga adorned by a large beacon that separates the beach from the port. Pier one, a modern promenade is located just on the other side and a shopping street with many restaurants, the beach visitors come to life after sunset.

  • The sea front is very pleasant out of season. There are some chiringuitos but between one and the other you can see the sea without actually walking on the sand. There is plenty of space for cyclists ...  more »

  • A man made beach close to Malaga centre. Good fscilities, clean.
  • 2 stars because its not smth special talking about the seadide and the wsters are not like crystall.
  • Visited in October although it was well over 30 degrees. It was mostly empty, nice bar by the entrance. Dark "dirty" sand. Not the nicest beach I have been to but ok for a city beach.
  • Nice beach, clean, has showers a playground for kids. Very nice shells.
  • Dark sand, lot of sunshades for reasonable price, nice chiringuitos all around. Can be incredibly crowded though. As it’s a city beach, the water can be one big mess.
