If you are a surf lover and an assiduous practitioner of this sport, you are probably aware that Malaga and surf are two united words that are perfect together. With unending kilometres of beaches, the Malaga coastline is not only known for its up market open air bars but also offers the visitor a long list of water sports of which surf is the most popular.
A sea faring city par excellence, you will notice on arrival at Malaga airport, the posters and information inviting you to practice this and other water sports during your stay. There are many schools and specialized centres where you can go, if you are a beginner, or unique beaches where you can practice and enjoy the waves in this southern part of the country (if you are already a veteran in this field).
The beaches in Malaga are perfectly connected with the historical centre of the city so if you have chosen to stay a one of the hotels that Petit Palace have in the centre of the capital, you will be able to move around like a fish in water between each zone, reaching the beach in no time.
Although you have a selection of all the urban beaches in Malaga, the most well known is the Malagueta beach (a hot zone in particular for lovers of a variant which is Kitesurf). With many metres of beach and proven quality waves, this is a meeting point for local and international surfers and also the lovers of another variant, the popular Paddle Surf.
Chanquete beach is another of these strong points for pro surfers. Fairly near to the Malaga Marina, the zone of Chanquete is characterized by more compact but bigger waves. Ideal for maximum enjoyment of the experience, if you choose this beach to surf during the week.
If you are new to this sport and need specialized help, the best thing will be to travel a few kilometres to Marbella or Estepona. There you will enjoy not only the best waves in the province (famous is the Cable beach in Marbella) but also you can have guidance from professional schools such as Nalasur or KitesurfEstepona, two excellent centres for beginners and experienced surfers
Whether you are an experienced surfer or not, Malaga is one of the national paradises for the practice of nautical sports. If you want to enjoy long days surfing, sailing or just taking the sun, don’t hesitate to check out the offer of hotels of Petit Palace in Malaga, highlighted for its excellent location and superior service.
