Nice beach, you can rent a chair and umbrella for 5 EUR. We enjoyed our stay here. A bit cold weather, but ok since it’s hot in the air. :) Some women sunbathe topless, but watch out, I personally confronted a guy filming the topless...More

Long, clean beach. Cold, but refreshing, Mediterranean water. You can get a lounge and umbrella if you need it. Popular with locals and tourists. Can get a bit crowded.

Probably the most popular beach among the tourists and locals. The beach is kept clean. Only problem was the big amount of jelly fishes, but it depends when you go

A lt of people especially in the weekend, close to the port so the water is oily and filled with jellyfish, that they try to fish out. Not my first choice, but is ok, with lots of shops and hotels nearby.

We visited Malaga the second week of May on a cruise. We walked from the ship to the beach. The beach was clean, pretty and lively. The sand was dark. A few brave people were in the water, as the water was still chilly. The...More

As far as town beaches go this is quite good. I would say that it is worth going to the far end (at the end of the Port pensinsula) because it is quieter and the sand seems better quality somehow.
