Just 3 km from the city centre you can enjoy a swim in the sea at Pedralejo Beach / Las Acacias - a 1,200 metre stretch of clean beach with a friendly atmosphere. It has black sand and a moderate swell, but is fairly busy. Very near it you will find others, such as La Arena Beach, almost 4 km long, Peñón del Cuervo Beach at 2.5km and El Candado Beach. However if you have enough time and what you want is to escape from the overcrowding of the urban beaches, you should hire a car and take a tour of the coastline, heading towards Nerja (about 65km). Here you will find coves and beaches where you can spend the whole day, in beaches such as Calahonda Beach, Maro Beach and El Pino Beach, as well as Alberquillas Beach and Torre del Pino Beach.
