The Alicate beach is located 10 kilometres east of the centre of Malaga town of Marbella and next to the beaches of Costa Bella and Pinomar makes a spectacular stretch of coastline of about 2 kilometres long. This beach has been awarded the Blue Flag 2021.

This beach is 850 meters long and has about 25 meters of average width. It is considered one of the best beaches in the area and borders one of the most exclusive residential areas of Marbella, which shares the same name. Arroyo Alicate is the origin of the name of this area.

Its golden Mediterranean sand, clear, calm waters and its ability to help us forget the daily stress, become one of the most charming beaches of the Costa del Sol.

To this we can add to the wonderful landscape effect provided by the natural barrier of pines, meadows and bushes that protects it and gives it that nice feeling of seclusion, privacy and of unique experience.
