The beaches of Benalmádena stand out for their quality and popularity, although we can find quiet and natural beaches the further we move away from the centre of the municipality.
On the Costa del Sol among the best beaches of Benalmadena, we also discover coves exclusively for nudists.
We would like to point out that almost all the beaches have large areas of sunbeds and wooden umbrellas for rent, although there is always space for those who prefer to just use a towel.
In addition, almost all beaches have showers and taps.
