Sun and beaches are the great offers of Malaga, with 161 km of coastline, where you can find irresistible beaches; from the most bustling ones to the quietest ones. Here we offer you the ten most attractive maritime spots that you should visit during your vacations.
The Costa the Sol is a mayor destination every summer due to its warm climate, tranquil and transparent waters and its richness in landscapes, where we can find numerous beaches between the mountains and the sea.
In the occidental part, with 1.700 meters length we find the Playa de Sabinillas in Manilva with a good number of services and leisure activities. This one is in contrast with the Playa de Artola in Cabo Pino (Marbella) surrounded by vegetation and situated in a protected area denominated Dunas de Artola. It’s golden Sand and moderate waves characterize this nudist beach. Estepona as has well a couple of inspiring beaches, especially the Bahia Dorada, a 700 meters long beach with, chiringuitos, bars and a camping.
A total of 4.400 meters of dark sand and cobbles, tranquil waters and close by vegetation we find at the Playa de Calahonda in Mijas. From early morning until night we find people going for walks along its shore, as it communicates without interruptions with Cala de Mijas.
Another emblematic coastal landscape of Málaga is the Peñón del Cuervo. The golden sand of La Araña extends for 400 meters alongside a semi urban nucleus.
In the more occidental part of Málaga are outstanding the cliffs of Maro. Its more isolated situation gives this place a special charm due to its tranquil ambience. At this beach we have to access walking. Further we find the Playa de Almayate with nearly 3 km of coastline in a natural environment. This is a less frequented beach, very adequate for relaxing and enjoying some spectacular sunsets away from the bustle and contamination of the city.
Nerja is another coastal destination to where we can escape. Here we find a more familiar ambience in a picturesque environment with a great offer of services like sunshades, telephone, nautical hire, parking spaces, chiringuitos, bars and close by Restaurants. Nerja offers as well cultural alternatives as for instance visits to the emblematic caves.
Closeby the village of Chaquete we find the Playa de Algarrobo, with a high occupancy and close to an urbanized area with tall buildings; ideal for practicing nautical sports due to its moderate waves and its length of nearly one kilometre.
Close by as well we find the Playa de Wilches in Torrox. This one is another of the calm beaches where we can enjoy a spot with little occupancy.
