Guadalhorce Beach, in Malaga, lies at the mouth of the Guadalhorce river, from which it takes its name, in the district of Churriana.

The beach is covered in dark sand and is 950 metres long and 60 metres wide on average. The natural conditions of the estuary make it somewhat more difficult to reach than other beaches, so it is guaranteed to be quiet.

The space, declared a natural beauty spot because of its high environmental value, extends over 64 hectares, and is inhabited by a number of species. Its position makes it one of the main routes for birds migrating between Europe and Africa.

Churriana is one of the eleven districts in the city of Malaga, and the takes its name from its neighbourhood. Historically, it was an independent town until it was recognised as part of the city in 1999.
