Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Calas del Pino beach is situated almost an hour east of Málaga on the Spanish south coast and is a real insider's tip. Even as you are approaching it you can enjoy breathtaking coastal scenery in intense shades of blue and green. An adventurous, steep walk leads you to the peaceful beaches, which are only moderately frequented. Both bays are part of a small, biodiverse conservation area and have no tourist infrastructure. Instead you will find ideal conditions for relaxing, snorkelling, nude bathing and soaking up the sun.

Calas del Pino - two fantastically remote bathing bays for switching off and soaking up the sun

The picturesque Calas del Pino are situated on the Andalusian coast east of Málaga. The journey here from the beautiful port city takes almost an hour. There are several entrances to the bays along the N 340 main road, where with a little effort you will also be able to find space to park.

You should definitely allow time for the climb down because an adventurous path leads over steep, rough terrain to both beaches. The reward is that even from your parking spot you can enjoy magnificent coastal scenery in intense shades of blue and green.

The path, which is around a kilometre long, leads you through this wonderful, diverse natural landscape where pine trees and prickly pears thrive. Under a roof of palm leaves you step onto the beach. At the back you will find the foothills of the beautiful nature park, which slowly merge into a pebble-covered beach area. In both calas you will find a roughly 150 metre long pebble beach surrounded by tall cliffs and bordered by rocky outcrops jutting into the sea.

The pebble surface continues under the water, which is why it is advisable to wear beach shoes. There are also a few rocks and pointed stones in the water, which could hurt you. Be sure to take a snorkel with you because the water conditions are ideal and you’ll want to plunge right in. Corals and sponges colonise the vibrant underwater world and with a little luck you might even come across the rare ocean sunfish.

Many of the bathers in the Calas del Pino come from the surrounding area. However lots of Spaniards and holidaymakers from other European countries also enjoy the Andalusian sun and you'll encounter couples and families alike here. You can bring your dog along too and nude bathing is perfectly fine if you feel like it. If you want to stay for longer you should bring some provisions because both beaches are completely unspoiled and have no tourist infrastructure.
