Fantastic beach just outside Málaga town. We cycled here on your rented bikes. Plenty of spots to eat and/or have a drink too!

Spent a day here in October - so much fun! Beautiful views, with mountains in front of you. Clear waters, clean beach and lots of options to eat out. Don't need more.

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

Is a great part of Malaga. Keep and eye on the jellyfish as they have been coming very often. The beach is normally quite clean and have lifesavers help around.
