"Paseo Maritimo Antonio Machado" Beaches Tip by blint

Beaches, Málaga: 15 reviews and 24 photos


The seafront and beach of Antonio Mechado is not far at all from the Centre if Malaga, just past the port which dominates the view.

What can I say, it is a city beach where you can go to catch some rays if you don't have time to go further afield. I don't know if the water is all that clean as it is right beside the port, but It didn't look too dirty to the eye at least.

Of course the sand is grey and thin, but I suppose it is far better than nothing or mud.

There are lots of beach bars which seemed to be open from Spring onwards to have a morning coffee, an afternoon beer or fresh sardines cooked in front of you on little boat BBQ's.

The backdrop of the main road isn't too pleasant either, but you can't have everything. Malaga is a working town not a holiday resort.
