1. Playa de la Malagueta
This popular beach is a short walk from the centre of Malaga, making it a very convenient choice for tourists who do not usually have their own transport to get around. With its fine, golden sand and clear waters, it is a great place to relax, swim and sunbathe. However, it can be quite crowded, especially during the high season.
Location: Paseo Marítimo Pablo Ruiz Picasso, 29016, Malaga, Spagna
2. Playa del Palo
Is located in the eastern part of Malaga. A typical fishing village is located here, so the experience is that of a quieter beach. The sand is dark and there are several fish restaurants and bars along the seafront. However, this place offers fewer services than other beaches in the area.

4. Playa de la Caleta
This charming cove is located in the western part of Malaga and offers a quieter, more secluded experience. The beach consists of small stones and there are several chiringuitos (beach bars) selling fresh fish and drinks. However, the bottom can be a little rocky, so it is not the best place to go for a swim.
Location: Playa la Caleta, Malaga
5. Playa de Cabopino
This lovely beach, recognized for its natural beauty and tranquility, is situated about 15 kilometers east of Malaga. There are many chiringuitos providing food and drinks along the beach, which is flanked by dunes and pine trees. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get to, so people without a car might not find it to be the greatest option.
