There’s loads of entertainments such as watersports and slides for the children to play with and socialise whilst at the same time being in a friendly environment. What more could you ask for your family?



Situated after the Old Town, Poniente beach is west of the usually overcrowded Levante but none the less exciting! The water sports and activities on offer remain various and entertaining without the hassle of over 6000 people looking for a spot in the sand. So if you still want a magnificent beach to feel the golden sand under your toes while sunbathing without the usual noise, then this beach is for you. The overall laid back style and relaxed atmosphere is perfectly inviting for those who like a bit of more space for their own and family, so why be disappointed and alone on a secluded beach?

Finally for those who want a piece of quiet on a sunny Mediterranean setting, the Malpas beach is guaranteed not to disappoint. Located close to the harbour under the castle cliffs and brilliantly decorated by palm trees, this beach is way less crowded than the other two while being as enjoyable. The activities on offer are less than the other two superstars of beaches but at the same time its less crowded and friendly nature makes it an idyllic spot to relax with a beer or cocktail in hand and gaze down the endless blue of the Mediterranean whilst savouring the sunshine.
