I'm going to visit family in Spain. They live a couple of hours inland of Malaga and aren't really too fussed about beaches. My DC aged 10 and 7 have never seen the med before so I'd like to take them to a beach at the beginning or end of the trip (only 4 nights). Is there a beach that is easy to get to and nice to swim not too far from the airport? We usually camp in France or Holland so I don't have much experience with med resorts.
Where inland are you going <nosy> I love that area and have been all over, but depending on where you are going and whether car/public transport might mean different places are easier to get to.
Further west, Fuengirola is OK in a large holiday resort of way - all nationalities including Spaniards go there so it's less of an English Breakfasts place. So there is a water park, skate park, play parks as well as beach/sea. Have a fab holiday.
