Don't get me wrong the sandy beach itself is excellent and kept clean. However the infrastructure is suffering. The beach boardwalks have become dangerous to walk on or have been removed. Large areas along the "promenade" and on the beach itself are fenced off and...More

Malapesquera Beach is yet another superb beach that the Costa Del Sol is justifiably famous for. Spotlessly clean sands and the lovely inviting Mediterranean Sea are a big draw. This beach has great facilities and lots of chiringuito's dotted along the beach front. We were...More

ok when the sea is calm but when there are waves it draws in the jellyfish and the locals just stand and watch the sea from the beach, not sure why, maybe to laugh at the tourists who get stung.

Go here every year clean & tidy with WC facilities worth paying the 10euros for sunbeds & wicker umbrella with small table. Usually a nice cool breeze of the sea.

The beach, even during our visit in February was kept clean, the water was also clean and clear and the promenade merits walking along the entire length

This beach gives great views seaward and over the marina. Like most of the beaches along the Benalmadena Costa there's a good promenade walkway to stroll along.

There are really 2 parts, the beach and the promenade. Both are much easier going than the Avda. Antonio Machado, which is the street running parallel. This has some awkward crossings, where there may be a drop keep on one side of a crossing but...More
