Here are the 8 beaches we want to introduce in this blog

Zahara de los Atunes Beach, Cádiz

This beach on the Costa de la Luz stretches along kilometres of fine sand and crystal-clear waters. It is famous for its tranquil atmosphere and breathtaking sunsets.

Bolonia Beach, Tarifa

Located on the Atlantic coast of Cádiz (Tarifa), Bolonia Beach is a natural setting with pristine nature, a paradise beach known for its crystal clear waters, fine white sand, and impressive sand dunes. It is a perfect spot for those seeking a quieter, more unspoiled beach.

Matalascañas Beach, Huelva

One of the most popular beaches in Huelva, frequented by people from Seville due to its proximity to the Sevillian city. That’s why, residents of Xior Sevilla, we encourage you to take a trip to Huelva and visit this famous beach. You can also enjoy the promenade and a beautiful sunset.

Playa de los Muertos, Almería:

This beach located in the town of Carboneras in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park doesn’t have the same level of occupancy as other beaches, making it a very relaxed environment. It’s essential to wear proper footwear, as the access involves a roughly 15-minute path with considerable slope and loose stones.

Calahonda Beach, Motril, Granada

If you’re living at the Xior Granada residence, you can take a trip to this wonderful beach with crystal clear waters in Motril, the southernmost town in the province of Granada. Thanks to its depth, it’s perfect for diving and spending a relaxing day with various restaurants, beach bars, and shops.

La Malagueta Beach, Málaga

Located in the city of Málaga, this urban beach offers a perfect combination of sun, sea, and culture. With its wide stretch of sand and a large number of beach bars and restaurants, it’s ideal for a fun day under the sun. It’s very close to our Xior Málaga Teatinos student residence, just a 35-minute bus ride to the beach.

Burriana Beach, Nerja, Málaga

Considered one of the best beaches in Málaga, it offers crystal clear waters, fine sand, and a wide range of shops, as well as a great gastronomic offer. It was awarded the Touristic Quality Q mark in 2016.

Calahonda Beach, Nerja, Málaga

This small cove in Nerja, next to the cliffs, is a beautiful beach favourite among locals and tourists. These last two beaches are a bit further from Xior Málaga Teatinos, so you also have the option of taking a car trip with your friends or fellow residents to enjoy a wonderful summer day and make the most of this university experience.
