This small but majestic beach is surrounded by rocky cliffs, one crowned with a Moorish tower. It is located between the Playa Tesorillo and Playa Pozuelo in Taramay, and earns its name from the ancient coins, or treasure, once found on its shoreline. Beautiful coastal views can be seen from Almunecar all the way down to the city of Motril.
Playa Tesorillo is great for families with small children as the beach gently descends into the sea and the waters are warmer here. There are two great restaurants that sit right at the entrance of the beach; one is Italian, the other serves local Spanish cuisine. They have live music most Fridays that creates a very fun and festive atmosphere. Outdoor seating is also available as well as bathrooms and showers.
Umbrellas and sun lounges are also available for rental on this beach. Parking can be hard to find due to the nearby 4 star hotel, so get there early.
