The province of Malaga boasts a privileged coastline, whose magnificent climate has made it the famous Costa del Sol. Its beaches and coves are internationally famous, both for their beauty and for their excellent condition and equipment. On this website we have often talked about the beaches of Malaga: we have listed its best sandy beaches, discovered beautiful coves and even paid tribute to the series Verano Azul, which was filmed in the town of Nerja.
But today I’m going to tell you about a lesser-known beach, also located on the coast of Malaga: Punta Chullera beach.
This sandy beach is located almost on the border between Malaga and Cadiz, and is seven hundred metres long. Long and narrow, it has sandy areas but there are other rocky areas, with small boulders that make the use of flip-flops or booties very advisable when bathing. The waters of Punta Chullera are incredibly transparent and crystalline, and its rocky seabed has made it a very popular spot for lovers of scuba diving and snorkelling.
Few people and a lot of peace and quiet
If there is one thing that makes Punta Chullera beach attractive, it is undoubtedly its low level of occupation, even in high season. To get to this beach you have to take the N-340 motorway: at approximately kilometre 135, take the turn-off and park in the Chullera housing development. After crossing a bridge, we will continue until we reach the coast. Next to the beach we can see the ruins of a watchtower built between the 15th and 16th century, a structure similar to others typical of Mediterranean beaches. The beach has showers, a beach bar and beach umbrella and sun lounger rental services. And after a day of sunbathing and swimming, there is nothing better than a stroll around La Duquesa Marina, located five kilometres from the beach.
