We chose a day on the beach for our final day in malaga after checking out of our apartment, as we werent due to fly until 10pm. Big mistake.......beach beds remarkably pricey at €7 each. We hoped for a peaceful chilled few hours but were constantly ( every 5 minutes) approached by very pushy massage girls who even started to touch you after you had said no gracias . Trying to doze was impossible and if you dared to sit up they were there again in a flash.
Add to this the "table cloth" sellers who held up their offerings in front of you totally blocking out the sun and you are not in for a pleasant experience. There is not a minutes peace, as the numerous guys selling drinks and crisps were also constantly marching through the beach beds every couple of minutes, repetitively chanting very loudly what they were selling....
There's only so many times in your life you need to hear " FANTA, COCA COLA, CERVESA"!! bellowed in your ear while trying to chill out on the beach.
Avoid this place at all costs, you'd pobably have a quiter time if you put your beach towel down in the ferry terminal, or at the end of the runway at Malaga airport....

We have been in Malaga 2 months as i write this review. I have walked Playa de La Malagueta several times as well as the entire length if the harbor drive and promenade. While the sand doesn't have the appeal of the Caribbean or Florida beaches, it seems to always be clean. When cruise ships are in port, its quite easy to spot sunburned tourists trying to get a tan in one day.

It’s the beach! Peddlers roam selling drinks, massages, beach blankets, and more but all were kind and aware of children playing on the beach; a simple “no, gracias” worked. The sand is a dirty brown but still fun to play in. There’s a small playground just up from the beach that was nice too. Umbrellas and chairs are available for hire.

We choose to stay out to by this beach rather than in the city as it is so relaxed and beautiful. The beach is very well kept with lots of facilities in terms of toilets, showers and exercise equipment if needed.

You can rent sun loungers at €14 a day for two with a parasol if required. The locals just take a towel and shelter under the palm tree which is a great idea.

We did some excellent walks along the beach and also dined at the fish restaurants along its edge.

You can find quieter parts further out and it really is a lovely beach.

The beach and water were clean and it's a walkable distance from the city. It's not exactly a picturesque beach with white sands and crystal clear water, but still pretty decent.

The water was vile. The beach is covered in cigarette butts & there was a sanitary pad and a razor in the water. I’ve never seen a beach so dirty. Obviously badly polluted by the nearby port.

Nice beach close to the tourist area. Easy to access. The beach was clean and not too busy. Water is nice,warm, drops off quick.
Not a lot of food options along the beach but you can get food and water.

Terrible. The sand is made of a fine dirt and rocks, which will stain you towel brown. The sea was full of plastic and litter. It backs on to a busy main road, and parking is a nightmare. Don’t bother.

If you like a beach made up of plastic, cigarette ends and dirt disguised as sand, then this is the place for you! I would highly recommend you cross this one off the to do list…

Central and easy to reach. Not the best in the area, but full of services and really enjoyable! It deserves a visit!
