It's a nice beach, though I think the one we ended up on was San Andreas. They all run continuously and look the same. The beach had bathrooms, and children's playground. There was a nice fish restaurant nearby, we had very good lunch there. We...More

Playa de Malagueta beach is full of garbage from Morroco. Very disappointing. I would not recommend it and the Uber services are terrible

A lovely beach right in the heart of Malaga. Mostly Spanish folk which makes for a nice atmosphere. Not too busy in September, although quite a few jellyfish in the sea.. My friend got stung every time she went in the water.

In Malaga for 1 week so decided to spend a day at the beach. 10€ for two sun beds under a parasol. It is a little stoney just before the water edge so I would take flip flops or shoes you don’t mind getting wet...More

I like this beach. Most days the water is quite clean, and it is nice place to take sun-bath, swim or play something on the beach. Atmosphere is friendly and quite relaxed, even it is near the city center. Only the Spanish (?) idea of...More

We didn’t venture onto the beach itself as we awaited to board the cruise we were joining at Malaga port, but enjoyed a stroll around the beachfront area and took some nice photos of the sands. The beach looked busy and beautiful with golden sand....More

This is a great place to soak up the sun without going too far from the city centre, but, as it is a city beach, it isn't the most beautiful and the sand is rather dirty. For that reason I would recommend paying to rent...More
