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.

So, Malagueta is a beautiful beach, many kilometres long exactly into the town center!!! It is better to visit it by foot cause there is no parking. The bad is that this beach has so many visitors and some time you can't enjoy it! There...More

It's a nice beach, though I think the one we ended up on was San Andreas. They all run continuously and look the same. The beach had bathrooms, and children's playground. There was a nice fish restaurant nearby, we had very good lunch there. We...More

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

A lovely beach right in the heart of Malaga. Mostly Spanish folk which makes for a nice atmosphere. Not too busy in September, although quite a few jellyfish in the sea.. My friend got stung every time she went in the water.

Whilst there are plenty of facilities and places to eat around the beach, the beach itself is horrid as it is made up from lots of little sharp stones. It is uncomfortable to walk on and not good for little one to play on either.

I like this beach. Most days the water is quite clean, and it is nice place to take sun-bath, swim or play something on the beach. Atmosphere is friendly and quite relaxed, even it is near the city center. Only the Spanish (?) idea of...More
