The beaches of Málaga are a great attraction to people from all over the world. You can go there
during the whole year, but especially during the summer time it is a great place to be.
You can start at Morro de Levante, which is a pier that marks the entrance to Malaga port. Towards the East of this stretch out the Malagueta beaches, 2500 metres in length, bordered by the Pablo Ruiz Picasso promenade. This promenade also passes alongside the La Caleta beaches, a continuation of the others.
If you further east towards the fishing zone of Pedregalejo, there is the Las Acacias beach, dotted with chiringuitos or refreshment stands. It has great tapeos and public facilities. This beach extends from the end of the promenade to the mouth of the Jaboneros stream.
This channel of water acts as a natural border, on the other side of which is the El Palo beach in the area of the same name. Nearby are the restored Carmen Baths.
Malaga’s beaches offer a wide range of leisure activities and cuisine. All along the coast you will find restaurants and chiringuitos where you can try the typical “pescaíto”, which is fried fish. These commerces have been formed into three routes or “tapas trails” by the AEHMA. There is the Anchovy route in El Palo, the Sardine route in Pedregalejo and the Squid route in the west zone.
