Pedregalejo Las Acacias Beach - Beaches

Playa Pedregalejo Las Acacias

Pedregalejo Las Acacias Beach

The origin of this neighbourhood's name is not very clear. Some people attribute it to the "pedregal" or stony ground formed by the San Telmo quarry, which was in operation at the end of the 19th century. However, the place name "Pedregalejo Beach" already appears in maps dating back to the end of the 18th century. It is one of the oldest traditional fishermen's neighbourhoods in Malaga.

Measuring 1200 m long and with an average width of 20 m, this beach is equipped with the city's oldest seaside promenade, which is famous for the large number of fish and shellfish restaurants that line its sidewalks. Formerly a pebble beach, today it has been totally regenerated by breakwaters.

Did you know?

The "copo" was the most widely used fishing net by the fishermen of Malaga. They were also called “jabegotes” due to the typical Malaga fishing boat, which is still in use today: the jábega. The net was cast and then dragged in from the shore. Its exquisite catch included whitebait, anchovies, mackerel, sardines, red porgy, etc. As it was a trawling net, its use is now forbidden.
