Guadalmar Beach, Malaga, is in the Malaga district of Churriana, between Guadalmar estate and golf course and the Natural Beauty Spot of the Mouth of the river Guadalhorce. The space extends over 64 hectares, and is a protected area because of its high environmental value, inhabited by a number of species. Its position makes it one of the main routes for birds migrating between Europe and Africa.

The beach, with a moderate swell and dark sand, is 400 metres long and 30 metres wide. There is no promenade at the beach, but it is surrounded by a lot of plants.

In the hot season it is possible to rent sun loungers and sun shades, and nautical sports equipment such as pedal boats.
