Playa de la Malagueta, in Malaga, is located between el Puerto de Malaga and playa de La Caleta.
This beach gets its name from the neighbourhood, La Malagueta, located in the city centre. During the nineteenth century it was occupied by sugar factories, warehouses, shipyards and other industrial productions. At the end of the century they built the Hospital Noble and the Plaza de Toros, and it began the transformation into what is now the district of La Malagueta.
This beach is one of many that were reclaimed on the Malaga coast. With its dark sand, it spans an area of 1,200 metres in length and 45 metres in width, and usually has a moderate swell tide.
When the hot season begins we can find rental services for hammocks and parasols as well as water sports equipment such as pedalos.
Next to this beach is the Real Club Mediterráneo de Malaga, of utmost importance because it is the oldest in Spain with the most current features.
It also has a playground for children to enjoy themselves, making it an ideal beach for children.
