Malagueta Beach Vacation Packages

Laze under the Andalucían sun on this popular beach, which is just a short stroll from Malaga's historic city center.

Malagueta Beach is an ideal place to escape the city and unwind by the sea. During the high season, waterfront food vendors and busy restaurants line the shore, parents and children use the playground facilities and visitors enjoy beach activities. Stretch out on a sun lounger, walk barefoot on the sands and cool off in the calm waters.

This man-made beach is comprised of sand imported from the Sahara. Just a short walk from the historic city of Malaga, the beach is conveniently located making it the perfect place to rest after a day of sightseeing.

Spend the entire day here or simply stop for a break while exploring the historic sights. Relax under the shade of an umbrella, cool off with a drink, snack on a plate of tapas and sit back and look out at the vast ocean. From the shore, you may be able to observe surfers in the swell and fishermen pulling in their nets.

Bring your favorite book to read or just close your eyes and listen to the sound of the waves. Families can stop to play at the nearby playground or splash about in the shallow water. If you need to stretch your legs, walk along the esplanade and breathe in the fresh salt air. The restaurants and food vendors along here draw in crowds during the day and night.

Malagueta Beach hosts several festivals. Visit in June and you might get to attend the Feast of St. John, when a large fire is lit and people dance in the hot coals. In August, the town celebrates the Feria de Malaga, one of the biggest festivals in the Costa del Sol. Flamenco performances and fireworks are staged to celebrate the historic end of the 800-year Moorish rule.

Reach Malagueta Beach via the Pablo Picasso promenade. Make the short walk from the city center or take a bus from Paseo del Parque. Parking is available and it is a 30-minute drive from the airport.

Travelling isn't just about famous destinations and swish hotels. It's about the experiences you live and the memories you collect along the way!

Before heading home, why not consider trying a DAYTRIP Málaga on MiniBus (2 entrances included)? It's an excellent way to spend your time.
