In Malaga there are a multitude of beaches with excellent quality and which are perfect for sunbathing and relaxing, or to practice the many sports that can be done on a beach. In this blog we will talk about one in particular, the so-called Misericordia Beach.
The name of this beach is due to the location of a provincial asylum and hospice called Casa de la Misericordia, which was built at the beginning of the 20th century and is now the Civic Centre. Playa de la Misericordia has a length of 2000 m. and a width of 30 m., so there is plenty of space for tourists.
This beach is not to be envied by any other, as it has the Q quality mark, which is awarded to those tourist establishments that meet the minimum specific requirements demanded by the Spanish Tourism Quality System (SCTE) in terms of service provision. It also has the SICTED distinction, which is a project to improve the quality of tourist destinations with the aim of improving the experience and satisfaction of tourists. All these distinctions make us see that it is one of the best beaches in Malaga without a doubt.
