Carvajal Beach
Holiday Travel Guide

Swim in the tranquil waters of this safe, clean and popular beach, known for its distinctive dark-coloured sand and pebbles. 

Join the locals and tourists who regularly spend their sunny days here on the unusual Carvajal Beach, which has striking dark sand. Take advantage of the excellent facilities and enjoy the usually calm waters, which tend to be safe even for smaller children at most times of the day.

Arrive early in the morning to find the beach at its quietest. Take the time to stroll the full length of the strand, which stretches for 1,476 feet (450 meters) and is 115 feet (35 meters) wide. Sun loungers and colorful beach umbrellas are available to rent for the day. You can also rent a hammock to lie in and doze off as you sway in the gentle ocean breeze. Feel safe in the knowledge that this beach was given a Blue Flag Award in 2016, meaning it is officially certified as a clean and well-maintained beach of the highest standard.

Bring your own food and enjoy a picnic on the sandy shore. Alternatively, make use of the popular restaurant that faces directly onto the beach. This is the place to pick up drinks and snacks, as well as larger hot meals.

You may instead choose to follow the coast to the southwest. Discover yet more beautiful beaches along the way, as well as a range of different waterfront eating and drinking options. Whether you are in the mood for seafood, Italian cuisine, Mediterranean classics or something completely different, you are likely to find what you are looking for along this well-developed coastline.

Note that there are also many different accommodations, including apartments and hotels to suit all budgets, located within just a few minutes’ walk of Carvajal Beach. Choose to stay here overnight and you will be able to enjoy watching the sun set over the calm ocean. However, it may be easier for you to simply drive here for a daytrip from further afield.

Reach Carvajal Beach by car from Fuengirola within around 15 minutes, or from Málaga within around 35 minutes. Leave your car in the parking lot conveniently located right next to the beach.
