Arroyo Vaquero - Costa Natura - Guadalobón

Arroyo Vaquero beach is located in Estepona, just 8 kilometres from the town, and next to Bahía Dorada beach.

This is a quiet beach which does not get too busy, perfect for those wishing to relax and enjoy the sea. The rocky seabed and the consequent marine vegetation and fauna make this the perfect choice for diving enthusiasts.

As the area is quiet and off the beaten track, naturist bathing is permitted here. In fact, Costa Natura, the beach next to Arroyo Vaquero is home to the first official naturist resort in Spain.

This beach does not have many services. The beach is approximately 30 metres wide and the shore has few stones compared to other beaches.



  • Suitable for disabled persons
  • Own car park



The beach is approximately 100 kilometres from Malaga. To get there take the A-7 highway towards Marbella, crossing this and other towns including Fuengirola. Leave the A-7 at junction 153 and continue until you reach the Arroyo Vaquero Holiday Resort (from where the beach gets its name).

To reach Arroyo Vaquero beach from Estepona, just take the A-7 motorway to junction 153 which will lead you to your destination.
