It is very romantic with all people who would like to see the wonderful sunset. It is magic. You can't imagine that colors. Wonderful! You should bring a photomachine, because you want to bring this nice view to home.

Benefits from its location near the port and the heart of the city. However its noisy and not the most attractive and if you're looking to spend a day at the beach there are countless other beaches which are much better and not far away.

Great in every way except hygiene, which unfortunately makes all its good aspects pretty much beside the point. Lumps of human poo in the water, a tideline of compacted baby wipes and seaborne litter everywhere. I don't know how much of this is Malaga's fault as the city itself is spotless. Maybe a clean downtown beach in the Med, beside... More

Very nice beach with beautiful sand and some rocks. If you get and umbrella and chairs you can spend the whole day there tanning. Beautiful breeze and people constantly selling drinks and massages which is great. Close to the main attractions including Muelle Uno and lots of restaurants.

This beach is very, very long one, full of people enjoying the sun and the sea view. There are small restaurants along the beach. Some of them are good, other ones not so, with bad service but still pricy. There are also the outside gyms along the beach. It is also very pleasant and clean for a walk.

very extensive beach very close to town and all the amenities. The sand is a little dirty and hire of sunbed and sun shade is recommended and is good value. A lot of hawkers on the beach selling cold drinks and various gifts.but nonetheless seems safe and friendly.
