  • Maro beach: located in Nerja, approximately 45 minutes by car from the city of Malaga. It was named the second best beach in Spain, evidently making it the best beach in Nerja. It is hidden away between cliffs and coves, making it a very special place to enjoy the surrounding nature. If you are a fan of diving, then you're in luck, as this beach boasts a wealth of marine life, making it a favourite spot to practice this sport.
  • Artola Dunes at Cabopino beach: this natural environment is located in Marbella and provides an example of what Malaga's beaches were like before they were developed. This beach has something for everybody, with families spending the day here, people participating in water sports and even a dedicated nudist section.
  • Peñón del Cuervo beach: located within the limits of Malaga city, it is famous because it has no beach bars. This beach is exclusively dedicated to sunbathing and spending the day surrounded by tranquility as it is home to a plant that is in danger of extinction, the limonium malacitanium (or siempreviva malagueña in Spanish). So, if you want to enjoy a day by the sea as quietly as possible, surrounded by nature, this is the beach for you!
  • Bil Bil beach: located in Benalmádena, it takes its name from the red Arabic-style castle named "Bil Bil", which was constructed in 1927. The best thing about this beach is that it is located at the heart of Benalmádena, meaning that if you want something to eat, drink or go for a walk, the atmosphere is guaranteed to be good.
