I've heard bad comments about this beach, but I tought it very nice; calm and crystal clear water, quiet, and with nice restaurants offering seafood and sangria. Not sandy though; it is a peeble beach.

A lovely beach with plenty of beds and umbrella's and safe bathing. Also has beach bars. It is a 15 minute walk around the Port from Malaga which in its self is a very nice walk. Plenty of cafes also on the beach road.

Very very easy to access from town and near all the restaurants and shop along the waterfront. Lovely beach to laze around on.
