There are a number of dark sandy beaches and with calm waters, some of them are: The beaches of San Julian, Sacaba, Misericordia, San Andres, La Malagueta, Caleta, Peñon del Cuervo, Pedregalejo and El Palo.
Whenever traveling to a destination we like visiting the shops looking for a souvenir gift or a little treat to take with us. For gifts and souvenirs we recommend a walk through the old town, next to the area where are situated the monuments and museums mentioned above. If you want to visit malls, there are available the following: Corte Ingles, commercial centre Larios, commercial centre Vialia and Fnac. These four are situated very close to each other and very close to the Malaga train station and bus station in Malaga.
