Malagueta beaches

This beach area is extremely popular with the locals, who enjoy coming to swim and sunbathe. In actual fact, Malagueta Beach is an artificial beach – it was created long ago using sand brought in from the Sahara desert. In order to avoid the encroachment of the sea, a small dike has been set up as protection.

A great area to socialize in, there are many up market beach clubs, bars and cafes, an exclusive restaurant and a nautical club. A wide range of activities are available here including swimming, jogging, mountain biking. The water is kept clean and there are showers and public toilets nearby. Lifeguards are posted at all times. Malagueta Beach even draws locals on winter days if the sun is shining.

Do you enjoy the sun and surf? Then why not relax on sunny Playas de la Malagueta in your free time while here in Spain for your Spanish Language Course in Malaga.
