Fodor's Review

Lined with low-rises and plenty of greenery, this typically urban beach is between Benalmádena and Fuengirola. One of the Costa del Sol's "blue flag" holders (awarded to the cleanest beaches with the best facilities), the 1¼ -km (¾-mile) beach has yellow sand and safe swimming conditions, which make it very popular with families. There's a choice of beach bars that rent lounge chairs and umbrellas, and regular live music in the summer. Like most beaches in the area,

Playa Carvajal is packed throughout July and August, and most summer weekends, but at any other time this beach is quite quiet. The Benalmádena end has a seafront promenade and on-street parking, and the Carvajal train station (on the Fuengirola–Málaga line) is just a few yards from the beach. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards (mid-June to mid-September); parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunrise; swimming.
