TAP Portugal  


Enjoy expansive areas and clear waters together right next to the buzz of the city or relax on a more peaceful and discrete beach just a few kilometres away. Along 14 kilometres of coastline there are plenty of options for those who want to spend time soaking up the sun or enjoying the beach.

The city has 14 kilometres of beaches, which are easily accessible by public transport and separated from the hustle and bustle of the city by vast areas of waterfront promenades, where you can sit and admire the scenery. The most favourable places for water sports are located near Malaga Bay. The western side is dominated by fine sandy beaches and clear waters, while the eastern areas are mostly stony and therefore in less demand. Practically all locations offer good facilities where you will find restaurants that serve pescaíto frito, a typically local speciality. Almost all the beaches are able to boast the Blue Flag. Among the 16 beaches in the city La Malagueta Pedregalejo and San Andrés are two of the most frequented. Malagueta beach has recently undergone improvements for its expansion, while water quality was also the subject of special attention from the authorities, who have also been focused on improving access and creating new facilities. Gualdamar is located slightly further away, while the golf course beach has a nudist area. Los Baños del Carmen and Peñon del Cuervo are some of the more modest areas. Outside the city limits, and just a few kilometres away, you can find some of the most popular bathing areas such as Torremolinos and Fuengirola.
