Andalucia has 1,000 km of coastline, and a vast variety of beautiful beaches.
Encompassing the entire width of southern Spain – from the Portuguese border in the west to Almería on the south-eastern coast – Andalucia has a staggering 1,000 km of coastline and beaches. Along its five coastal provinces – Huelva, Cadiz, Malaga, Granada, and Almería – you’ll find wide, flat sandy expanses, tiny rocky coves, and everything in between, catering for families, party-goers and adrenalin sports nuts. Here we suggest some great Andalusian playas, along with more things to do in the surrounding area.
On a practical note, most of the beaches listed here have facilities like car parks, showers, toilets and chiringuitos (beach bar-restaurants), unless otherwise mentioned.
Bolonia beach is a stunning curve of golden sand and turquoise sea – you can see the Roman ruins at the bottom of the photo.
