“Dirty, dirty, dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

This is the city's most-used beach and you can tell. It's crowded and polluted by run-off from the nearby port. The locals call it a derrogatory name which I won't repeat here.

“Nice area for a stroll...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

Playa de La Malagueta is the city beach of Malaga.Its quite crowded in summer and easily reached from the city center even on foot.Most of all I like the wide and long waterfront sidewalk in front of the beach for a long stroll even as far as Pedregalejo.The beach has shower facilities,etc and its a good option when you do not have the time to get to another beach further out of town.Sun is hot in summer so if you are out for a stroll go after 8 p.m.!

“A Wonderful Place to Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

The Malagueta Beach is a very popular beach with the local residents during summer, when they swim and sun themselves. In other seasons it is a wonderful place to stroll, with many seaside restaurants. The paseo maritimo is paved and one can go for kilometers walking along it. The bay is beautiful. The beach has many facilites, such as bathrooms and a first aid station.
