I consider Summer to be the best part of the year. Time to bask in the sun and probably get a tan too. Autumn is around the corner, and before you know it, it will be winter. You are going to miss the hot weather. If you happen to be in Malaga, or you are looking for a place to have some fun and some heat too, Malaga beaches are the ones you should be at or purpose to be there. Get your ticket. Here are some of the best beaches that you should visit.

1. Playa de la Malagueta

This beach is a 10-minute walk from the city. A great place to spend the rest of your day away from the rush in the city. Do you want to sit, stroll, skate or even cycle? The beach is flexible and will accommodate you all. They have very affordable prices that won’t make you feel like you have been ‘robbed,’ this applies to both the locals and tourists alike. There are enough sunbeds with parasols for hire, showers, etc. It’s a great place to spend time with your kids. No forgetting the soft, warm sands. Oh!You won’t want to leave.

2. La Caleta Beach

Ever thought that you could have a history lesson on a beach? I know the idea seems boring, but that’s because you have never paid a visit to this beach. La Caleta Beach is found in the historic Cadiz City of Spain. It is enfolded by cliffs and meadows, and the water is dark blue. A favorite of the locals as it is somewhat private. The beach is close to two historic Castillo’s that are worth having a peak. What better way to have a history lesson than while walking on the Atlantic waters on the shore with the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs?

Maro Beach was voted Spain’s number 2 Best Beach in 2013. Lined with cove-like borders and its picturesque surrounding, you can’t argue with that.

Apart from that, there are numerous exciting activities that you could be part of, such as snorkeling, kayaking to see the underwater caves and caverns, etc. It will be a worthwhile experience; I can assure you.
