Playa de la Malagueta – Malagueta Beach Playground

Playa de la Malagueta located in Malaga, Spain, is a beautiful urban beach with lots of playground equipment for kids of all ages. Starting at the iconic ‘Malagueta’ sign and extending south down the beach to the popular zipline. Kids of all ages can use the equipment and find a soft landing in the sand while grownups lounge on one of the many benches, on the grass, or in the sand.

Keira & Lauren Score

Rating: 4 out of 5.

There are a few seafood restaurants and bars right on the sand. Try the traditional Malaga favorite called espetos de sardinas, which is sardines on a skewer and cooked over coals. You’ll see them cooking in old dinghy boats that have been made into barbeques. There are many chiringuitos, or small bars, nearby where you can grab a cold drink and a snack and watch the kids play. Novelty ice cream pop up shops and an entire street of surf shops, restaurants, and other cool spots are right across the street. There are beach bathrooms and the restaurants also have bathrooms.
