1.Playa de Bolonia
The beach is just up the coastfrom Tarifa.
Literally off the beaten track, since it lies at the end of a no-through road. The little town has a lot to give: Roman ruins, juice bars and cool wooden beach restaurants serving delicious fresh fish. And of course, a wide sweep of golden sand, backed by a grassy flower-covered bank, ending in a steep pine-forested dune.
There is actually a lot of wind which makes the beach very attractive for wind and kite-surfing crowd.
2.Playa de Cristo (Costa del Sol, Malaga Province)
This Blue Flag beach just outside Estepona is the best of many in the area if you ask me. It is a small bay with crystal-clear azure water, how does that sound to you?
If your family is still with you it is just the perfect place to be. It is super for families, with a car park just behind the curve of soft, white sand.
3.Torremolinos (Costa del Sol, Malaga Province)
Where it all started: The Costa del Sol's first ever resort is just 13 km north of Malaga. Torremolinos has a certain 1970s retro charm - a long, straight stretch of coast lined with rows of sunbeds, backed by high-rise hotels and apartments
This town offers the classic Brits-on-the-costa experience; bars showing live football matches, fish and chips, and busy nightlife, including a buzzing gay scene.
4.Playa de los Genoveses (Costa de Almería, Almeria Province)
Cabo de Gata National Park in Almeria has some truly stunning beaches, gloriously pristine and mercifully undeveloped.
Los Genoveses is one of the most perfectly picturesque with a large horseshoe-shaped bay and shallow water, bookended by impressive cliffs, which you can easily reach by a short and easy walk from a car park.
As with all the beaches in this area, don't expect any facilities. It is basically just you and mother nature.
5.Playa la Herradura (Costa Tropical, Granada Province)
This beach is made for Watersports, mainly scuba-diving but also windsurfing.
Also, the mountains of the Sierra Nevada are a short drive away from La Herradura meaning you can ski and swim on the same day, how cool is that?
6.Playa del Cañuelo(Costa del Sol, Malaga Province)
This shingly cove near Nerja is well off the beaten track, and is a favourite spot with trendy hippy types. You get there on a little bus (2 euros return per adult, free for children) which winds its way down the tree-covered slopes of Maro hill to the clear waters below; the headland is great for snorkelling, and there are two beach bars; swimwear is optional. El Cañuelo is in the Acantilados de Maro-Cerro Gordo Natural Park, which stretches east into Granada province.
7.Playa de los Muertos (Costa de Almeria, Almeria Province)
A dead-straight line - as if drawn with a ruler - along the Almeria coast, bordered at either end by a huge rock, Los Muertos beach is a geographical phenomenon. It is also wonderfully isolated, making it ideal for naturists. So don’t forget to bring your own drinks and food.
8.Matalascañas (Costa de la Luz, Huelva Province)
This beach is the closest to the city of Seville.
It is a resort town with kind of different personalities.On the right-hand side, you will see miles of empty sand backed by dunes - this is part of Doñana National Park, only accessible to those on foot or bike. And on the left-side hand you will see are modern high-rise apartment blocks and cafes with a promenade behind the sand. Hugely popular with daytrippers and groups of young; expect loud music and excitable teenagers.
So, the decision is up to you 😉
9.La Fontanilla (Costa de la Luz, Cadiz Province)
Situated in front of the center of fishing town Conil de la Frontera, this beach is broad and flat, with a vase expanse of sand at low tide, and lagoons, as the sea recedes far out. If you've ever dreamed of riding a horse along the sand, splashing gently in the waves as they lap the shore, this is the place to fulfil your fantasy,though only in low season I'm afraid. Just north of Conil are a series of hidden sandy coves called the Calas de Roche.
10.El Rompido (Costa de la Luz, Huelva Province)
From this small fishing village, located on a river estuary surrounded by marismas , take the boat out to the uninhabited spit of land opposite with its superb beaches. Ideal for families, though take your own food, with the added appeal of the boat trip and back-to-nature simplicity. It's also great for nature-lovers - the Parque Natural Marismas de Rio Pedras y Flecha del Rompido has spoonbills, egrets and storks.
