A Beach Bar and a Beach Club are the same thing?
A summer in Malaga without beach bars would be unthinkable. It´s already many decades ago when the first kiosks were established on the beaches of Malaga city, long before Torremolinos or Marbella made a name for themselves as tourist destinations.
In those simple beach bars were served drinks and above all what has made the Chiringuitos of Malaga famous: Their fish. Fried, grilled or in the form of spits.
Over the years the Chiringuitos have evolved into slightly more comfortable beach huts, but even so they have never lost their essence: They are family bars where you can eat very well, especially fish, rice and seafood.
Discover here the best Beach Bars on the Costa del Sol.
While a Chiringuito can be recognized from afar by the delicious aroma of wood-roasted fish, a Beach Club will attract you by its visual aesthetics: Balinese beds, bamboo, decoration, DJs, cocktails, international menu… and many beautiful people.
