La Rada Beach is in the town of Estepona, and is the most visited by both locals and visitors to this town on the Malaga coast.

La Rada Beach is a long stretch measuring more than 2 and a half kilometres, with fine grey sand, and a large number of services are offered along this lengthy promenade.

It is the Estepona beach par excellence, and has a lifeguard service to ensure the safety of bathers'.
