We at Niza Cars know what our favourite beaches in Malaga are and want to share them with you in the following list.


Maro Beach

This Malaga beach belongs to the town of Maro located 5 km from Nerja, and that’s why it is known as Maro Beach. It’s famous for its beautiful natural surroundings and crystal-clear waters. Its numerous coves and the fact it’s nowhere near the centre of town make it a very quiet beach.
Some of this Malaga beach’s coves are equipped with all kinds of services like showers, restaurants, toilets, etc. On the other hand, others are totally natural, and you won’t find any of these services, ensuring you can unwind completely.

If you are a lover of water sports like snorkelling or kayaking, Maro Beach is a very good choice to do these sports.

This Malaga beach should also be included in any list of Andalusia’s best beaches. In spite of it being only 120 metres long, it’s surrounded by cliffs and located to one side of Nerja’s famous Balcony of Europe.

It has grey sand, which contrasts with its turquoise waters that attract a large number of visitors every year. To top it all off, it is right in the centre of Nerja, so you can enjoy all kinds of services and a wide variety of nearby restaurants and beachside establishments.

 

Malagueta Beach

This beach in the city of Malaga is right in the city centre and very near the port. It’s one of the most popular beaches in Malaga due to its size, measuring more than a kilometre long and approximately 45 metres wide. It’s easily accessible, and all sections of the beach are equipped with showers. The offering of typical Malaga restaurants on the beach is very broad. If you’re visiting the city of Malaga, don’t hesitate to drop by this beach and enjoy a good fried fish platter at any of its seaside restaurants.

Bil Bil Beach

The name of Bil Bil Beach is derived from Bil Bil Castle, which was built in 1927. Its interiors are decorated with Arab-style tiles and it’s currently an exhibition centre that is very popular among tourists. This Malaga beach with fine sand is situated next to the castle and stands out for its exceptional location, stunning views and picturesque seaside promenade.

 

Castillo Beach

The name of Castillo Beach is derived from its location at the foot of Sohail Castle in Fuengirola. It is far from the centre of Fuengirola (a town in Malaga province), which is why it’s very quiet, and its crystal-clear waters are sought by many people. It’s easy to find parking spaces on this beach in Fuengirola, Malaga. A curious fact about this beach is that it is one of Malaga’s dog-friendly beaches, which attracts many people who go to it to enjoy a swim with their pets.
