Malagueta Beach (Playa de La Malagueta) Tours

Malagueta Beach (Playa de La Malagueta)
One of the cleanest, sparkliest urban beaches in Andalucia, Malagueta is blessed with a soft, sandy sweep of 0.75 miles (1,200 m) in length and a spectacular backdrop across Málaga’s smart waterside apartments to stumpy hills inland. Lying just east of the fishing port, it is one of 15 beaches within the city limits and is completely manmade on reclaimed land.

With only a moderate tide typical of the Mediterranean Sea and clean, shallow water, the beach is well served by lifeguards, shady spots under palm trees and several play areas, making it perfect for families spending the day there with young children. The calm waters of Malagueta are ideal for swimming and facilities for adults include sunbed and parasol hire, showers and workout stations along the Promenade of Pablo Ruiz Picasso.

The curve of the beach is lined with a series of shops selling swimwear and beach necessities as well as chiringuitos (simple bars offering drinks and tasty tapas) and upmarket seafood restaurants. Although it gets very popular with local families in the height of summer, there is ample parking nearby.

Practical Info

Admission is free, and it is open 24/7. The beach is best accessed by car from the city center in five minutes along the Paseo de La Farola, or if you are taking public transportation, take EMT bus no 14 to the Paseo de la Farola and walk 10 minutes.
Address: Malagueta Beach, Málaga, Andalucia 29016, Spain
