Playa de La Malagueta, Malaga

3.5
#1 of 6 in Beaches 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 .

  • in the middle of the city, very busy, of dark sands, the water was quite clean but icy, I entered and went out instantly. There are lounge chairs to rent, vendors, people who offer to do massages, something I saw on other beaches as well. We stayed a while under some trees and left

  • It is definitely one of the most famous beaches in Malaga, very close to the historic center of the city, so as against it is that it is always very crowded and not suitable for those who are looking for tranquility. As a pro there is precisely its proximity to the center, so with a nice walk starting from the Muelle one you get to this kilometer beach full of chiringuiti and a series of services that make it, therefore, very busy.
