Playa de Rincón de la Victoria - a quiet urban beach with entertainment and family fun
Whether it's in the water or on shore, Playa de Rincón de la Victoria, which spreads over two kilometres of coastline, has plenty to offer. On the sand, which is interspersed with pebbles in places, you will find the palm islands that are typical of the region and whose grassy surfaces provide pleasant spots for lying in the shade. Colourfully painted toilet blocks, showers and tall wooden towers, from which lifeguards keep an eye on everything, characterise the look of the beach, as do the individual chiringuitos, where you can indulge in grilled fish dishes and other Andalusian specialities on the beach. You'll find plenty of loungers and beach umbrellas available for hire. There are also fitness trails, table tennis tables and children's play areas available at Playa de Rincón de la Victoria, which add variety to your day at the beach here on the Costa del Sol. Your kids will be delighted with the several play areas on the beach and on the promenade. In the water you can expend some energy with a stand-up paddle boarding session or a family pedal boat ride. There are also several water play parks made up of floating slides, climbing walls and other obstacles, which guarantee lots of fun for young and old.
The small town of Rincón de la Victoria is situated around 18 kilometres east of Málaga. The urban beach that shares the name of the 40,000 strong settlement has a broad beach promenade with restaurants, inviting cafés, and shops selling souvenirs and other items. A few hotels and lots of multi-storey apartment blocks situated directly on the promenade are primarily occupied by families of holidaymakers from Spain. They appreciate the quiet, relaxed atmosphere on the wide beach, which never gets really crowded thanks to its length.
In the west Playa de Rincón de la Victoria is bordered by a large cliff with buildings on it. The further east you walk, the less touristy the beach becomes. Here it merges seamlessly with Playa de Benagalbón.
