Andalucia has 945 km of coastline and a diverse range of beaches, varying from the rugged and rocky to open strands of golden sand. The best beaches in Andalucia start from Murcia to the border with Portugal. Here is Umuzee’s list of some of the best beaches in Andalucia. It may help you choose where to buy a property in southern Spain.
El Rompido is in Huelva province and is part of the Costa del Luz. It is part of the fishing village of Cartaya, which is located at the mouth of a river estuary. The beach hasn’t been developed, mostly because it sits on the edge of a nature reserve and visitors can get a boat to take them to the more remote parts of the beach.
Playa de la Barrosa
Another spectacular beach on the Costa de la Luz, La Barrosa is in Chiclana de la Frontera. The beach stretches for eight kilometres and is divided into three sections starting from the quieter stretches in the south to the busy section in the north, closer to Chiclana.
Playa de Bolonia
Another Costa de la Luz beach, and this one is just a few kilometres away from Tarifa. One of its main features is a massive sand dune and there are the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia as well. Like neighbouring Tarifa, this beach is a favourite with windsurfers and kitesurfers.
Playa de Cabopino
Making a list of the best beaches in Andalucia can’t possibly go without this 27-kilometre beach to the east of Marbella. Probably the most famous on the Costa del Sol, it has a variety of sections ranging from areas that are aimed at families to the part reserved for naturists. With excellent beach bars and restaurants nearby, as well as some famous beach clubs, it remains a popular beach with residents and visitors alike.
Playa de la Caleta
This urban beach is one of the best known in Málaga city. It is only a short walk from the city centre to this beach and is preferred by those seeking a quieter place to relax than the busy sands at the Malagueta.
Playa de los Muertos
This lies on the Costa de Almeria and is an almost straight stretch of golden sand. It is secluded and access is via a steep Cliffside path. It’s the kind of beach where you need to take your own refreshments, as there are no beach bars here.
