La Misericordia Beach - Beaches

Playa La Misericordia

La Misericordia Beach

This beach probably takes its name from the location of a provincial asylum and hospice known as the Casa de la Misericordia, which was built at the beginning of the 20th century and in operation until 1978. Today the building houses the Civic Centre.

La Misericordia Beach is approximately 2000 m long and around 30 m wide. It is one of Malaga's most popular beaches and some 19th century chimneys, which are vestiges of Malaga's industrial past, still line its seaside promenade.

Did you know?

Bathers on La Misericordia Beach have to be careful and aware of a phenomenon which happens once a day and makes the tide rise quickly, drenching bather's towels, beach umbrellas and personal belongings. This phenomenon is none other than the wave caused by the wake of the high-speed vessel that plies the Malaga - Melilla route – better known as the "Melillero" – slowing down as it enters the port.
