San Andrés Beach - Beaches

Playa San Andrés

San Andrés Beach

This beach is situated between La Misericordia Beach and the Port in the west of the city. Its name seems to derive from an old hermitage built by the fishermen who used to fish along these beaches in honour of Saint Andrew, their patron saint and protector.

San Andrés Beach is 650 m long and 50 m wide. It is a very busy beach because it is easily accessible from a wide seaside promenade that runs along the entire area.

In his fight against Ferdinand VII's absolutism, the liberal general José María de Torrijos prepared an uprising to be

headed by himself from his exile in England. He landed on El Charcón de Mijas Beach from Gibraltar. Victims of a trap sprung by the absolutist authorities, pursued and finally arrested, General Torrijos and his 48 followers were shot at dawn on the beaches of San Andrés on 11 December 1831.
