The province of Malaga offers the chance to enjoy extraordinary places. One of the most effective ways to relax is spending a day on one of its fabulous beaches. You’ll find everything you’re looking for: sand, clear waters, and warm temperatures. In addition, the dip in the sea is almost guaranteed, since sunlight shines around 300 days a year. These are some of the best beaches in Costa del Sol that you would love to be in with your children. But there is much more to see and do around the area.
Beaches in Costa del Sol that you would love to be in with your children
Playa de Calahonda (Nerja)
The small beach of Calahonda is located in the town of Nerja, under the Balcón de Europa. This beach of 120 meters, is characterized by its dark grey sand and turquoise blue waters, which attract hundreds of tourists every day. In addition, its location near the centre of the city and the number of services provided (showers, hammocks, cleaning services, and rescue), make this an essential place if you are visiting the Costa del Sol. You will feel safe and cosy if you travel with kids. This is one of the best beaches in Costa del Sol that you would love to be in with your children and it is also accessible for disabled people.
Playa del Castillo (Ejido, Fuengirola)
This beach is located at the foot of Castillo Sohail, in the small town of Fuengirola. It is known for its tranquillity since it is quite distant from the centre of the city. Its clean waters receive the Blue Flag every year, a quality award granted by the European Union. Thanks to the collaboration of the municipalities of Mijas and Fuengirola, you will easily find parking areas and a special area for dogs. If you do not feel like spending all day on the beach, you can enjoy sports activities and sail on the river that runs through the town. You will enjoy Playa del Castillo as much as your little ones will do.
Playa de Cabopino (Marbella)
The beach of Cabopino, also called Artola, is located in the middle of a natural area near Marbella. It is surrounded by sand dunes (Dunas de Artola), which were declared a Natural Monument by the Junta de Andalucía in 2001. The peculiar Ladrones Tower (Well of Cultural Interest), also welcomes thousands of tourists every year. This beach of light gray sand and not very deep waters, is considered semi-nudist, besides being very popular among the gay community. It also has a large number of activities. The beach is very well equipped, and is easily accessible, both by car and by bus. Perfect for liberal families who want to teach their principles to the youngest ones as soon as possible.
Playa de la Malagueta (Málaga)
Between the port of Malaga and the beach of La Caleta, there is the wide beach of La Malagueta. It is very popular in the city, and therefore, usually quite crowded. Its name, written in large letters, serves as an orientation to the visitor. In addition, you can enjoy beautiful views of both the mountains and the recently reconstructed pier. A wide variety of beach bars, excellent services (surveillance and rescue, cleaning, rent of umbrellas, and hammocks), and a young atmosphere have contributed to making La Malagueta one of the most appreciated beaches in Malaga.
It is actually very close to the city centre and many hotels. So you can be sure that you can come back home the moment your children start to get bored… If that ever happens at the beach.
