Between Fuengirola and Benalmadena. Small cove for all over sunbathing. Lovely bar (food available). Need to get there early to bag a space... It does get busy. No sunbeds so bring a towel and better still a mat. Stairs down to beachfront from road. It is free and you must go nude or the bar staff will persuade you ☺️.... More

We have been visiting this beach for about 5 years. It is very friendly, very relaxed with good facilities including a reasonably priced beach bar. It is good for singles, couples and families alike. Beach shoes are needed but the sea is clear with good snorkelling. Toilets are cleaned regularly and an outdoor shower is very welcome on hot days.... More

Average. Can't make its mind up whether it is sandy, rocky, or shingle. Extensive, but just more of the same. The prom is more attractive than the beach, and is usually full of morning joggers.

One of the first nudist beaches to be recognized in Europe, it's a small cove with headlands at both ends with a steep descent from the road through trees so it's well hidden. There's a bar where you won't get served if you're clothed. No cameras allowed. Very quiet in December.

This is a nice beach surrounded by cliffs. There is a bar with music and karaoke, toilets are just around the corner. Recommended place for couples, singles as well as families. Just be careful: there are big and slippery rocks under the water and a lot of seaweed washes ashore.

Had heard of Benalnatura so decided to visit while staying at a local hotel. Wife is not interested in naturism so visited solo. Felt a little uneasy entering the beach but despite being quite busy with gay men and ladies, could see couples plus straight men and women singles. To be honest no one bothered anyone and everyone was very... More

Lovely beach and as described in previous posts it is pebbled from the waters edge into the sea, so take beach shoes with you. The bar is very reasonably priced and as cheap as anywhere else. The beach was absolutely ram jam full when I first visited on a Sunday afternoon, midweek it was quieter but still very busy in... More

A small naturist beach. We got there quite early on two days of our holiday having dropped our boys off at a dive shop. The beach fills up quite quickly. All sorts of people and nationalities. The beach was clean, tidy and stony as are most of the beaches in that area. There is a bar which also serves snacks,... More
