Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Playa las Palmeras is a 700 metre long beach of pebbles and sand. It is situated east of Puerto Caleta de Vélez harbour, and is bordered on the other side by the family bathing beach, Playa Algarrobo-Costa. At Playa las Palmeras you'll find lots of Spanish families enjoying sunbathing. There's no water sports operator, just basic facilities such as toilets, showers, sun loungers and a lifeguard. Nonetheless, the beach has been awarded the Blue Flag, and has a children's playground that's a firm favourite with the little ones.

Playa las Palmeras - bathing beach on the Costa del Sol that's popular with the locals

Playa las Palmeras lies to the east of Puerto Caleta de Vélez. It’s situated in the small town of Algorrobo-Costa, not far from the popular Andalusian tourist resort, Torre del Mar. The beach is 700 metres long and a small jetty marks the boundary between it and the neighbouring beach of Playa de Algorrobo-Costa. However, you can easily get from one to the other.

Playa las Palmeras, which has a surface of pebble and sand, was awarded the Blue Flag in 2015. This quality mark confirms that the beach has good water conditions and supports sustainable tourism. In fact, the character of the beach is anything but touristy. The bathers on the broad, spacious sands are predominantly Spaniards enjoying their weekend or evening leisure time. It never gets overcrowded here, so you should be able to park without a problem.

Even so, the extensive beach has the essential facilities such as toilets, showers, some sun loungers and a lifeguard. What's more, Playa Las Palmeras is wheelchair accessible. On the road running along behind the beach you'll find several restaurants, which serve refreshments and snacks as well. The particularly charming chiringuito, Tropy, located right on the beach, serves Spanish cuisine and fresh fish straight from the grill. There are various passing beach vendors who can provide you with beach equipment.

You're guaranteed hours of tranquillity in the sunshine on this beach. But you'll have to manage without a water sports operator. To make up for that, however, your kids will be able to let off plenty of steam on the play areas.
