As La Malagueta beach is the closest to the city centre and most easily accessible, you’ll primarily find tourists or other guiris here topping up their tans or playing beach sports such as volleyball.
Located just at the end of the Muelle Uno promenade and close to the bullring, this is an easy escape on a sweltering day.
Lay on the sand, rent a lounger, take a dive in the water, or relax on the grass in the shade… and don’t forget to take a photo next to the iconic Malagueta sign!
Tip: If you’re looking for something to eat or drink, there aren’t so many options on the seafront at Malagueta. Head either into Muelle Uno or head further down the coast towards La Caleta beach and go to one of the chiringuito beach bars.
