Good view of Malaga Bay area and Benalmadena Port. In november too cold to try my swiming suit but as I was told its quite popular in summer for its sandy seabed and small waves.

Another clean beach with plenty of sunbeds to rent. Bars are situated along the beachfront area and it is within walking distance of all hotels in the resort.
