Nice beach

Nice sandy beach with great waves. Parking is a bit hard to find if you get in late during the day but still not too bad. Lots of restaurant located close by.

Nice beach surrounded by numerous bars ,restaurants and shops. Not easy to park though. The local fish is great ,prices are fair, professional massages on the beach , wheel chair friendly , easy walk into Torremolinos or Benalmadena harbour.

An infinite walk along Carihuela stretch, packed with shops and snack bars. Local families and tourists alike, a nice place to be in the sun.

Looking for a vacation on the beach? Just 45 minutes from Malaga airport, this is a convenient place to visit. A long weekend or a month's retreat, everything is conveniently located.

This is a lovely beach, set in an even lovelier area. The waves can be rather unforgiving though and there is not a lot of paddle water as the shelf drops quite steeply.

We stopped her to enjoy the beach one day it was 4.50 euro each for a sun bed for the whole day and you get the wifi passcode so I didn't think that was bad as they all charge. The people here were nice enough you have the bar where they sell food and drinks not badly priced either. It... More
