We come to Granada to inaugurate our ranking with this beach, considered the best nudist beach of the Andalusian coast.

It is a mixture of sand and stones, characteristic of the whole coast of the area. It is ideal to go out of season, and enjoy the beauty of the place in solitude. In the summer months we recommend going by bus.

We highlight the crystal clear and clean waters, abundance of fish, recommended area for scuba diving.

The beach is very protected and well looked after.

We are still in Cádiz. This beach could easily compete for the most beautiful beaches in Andalucia but due to its characteristics we have declined to place it in the ranking of family beaches, as its dimensions, the turquoise and the sunsets, the unbeatable and wide gastronomic offer places this paradise of Cadiz in the 2nd place of this ranking. Playa de la Virgen del Carmen is a very popular beach in Zahara de los Atunes among tourists during the summer months due to the large number of holidaymakers.

Las mejores playas de Andalucia

Location

The best beaches in Andalusia

And this year we give the first position to this emblematic beach of Almeria to visit with the family. If you haven’t visited it yet, you can’t put it off for another summer. We give the first position as a family beach to La playa de los muertos . It is a huge straight beach of more than a kilometre long and has the bluest and most crystalline water in the area. This beautiful beach appears on almost every list of the best beaches in Spain. Among its virtues are the water, of intense blue, the sand, very pleasant because it does not bounce you but it does not have big stones either, and the isolation, it is far from any village, and halfway between Agua Amarga and Carboneras.
