How to get there

Transport
Car, Bus
Access
Short walk

South from Malaga on A49. After Fuengirola exit to El Chaparral. The beach has several accesses. The most space for parking is on the parking lot, but then you have to carry your gear a bit away from the main beach area (specially during summer). You can drive a bit further east and park in the small streets. A bus stops also close by.
