About Málaga

Including tips for the best time to visit Málaga

Málaga has reinvented itself as a cultural epicenter. In the past, just about every vacations here involved a direct trip from the airport to a resort on the Costa del Sol – but not anymore.

Nowadays, around every corner you'll find a museum or art gallery. Among the best are the Museo Picasso Málaga, which features over 200 works by Spain’s most famous painter, and the Centre Pompidou Málaga, a contemporary art museum crowned by a giant, multi-colored cube.

The Pompidou and other modern attractions call Muelle Uno home, an open-air shopping mall and collection of restaurants next to the Port of Málaga. Be a Malagueño for a day and treat yourself to a plate of "boquerones" (fried anchovies), then head to a back-street tapa bar in the center for some Manchego, chorizo, and Iberian ham. Afterwards, walk it all off through the gardens of the Alcazaba – an ancient Moorish fortress from the 11th century.

Málaga’s position between the mountains and the sea hosts a pleasant microclimate that keeps the beaches busy well past the summer. Malagueta Beach is the most popular with its high-quality facilities and beachside bars.

Malaga is a fantastic city with great opportunities and sights for all ages. And let's not forget that there's the beach and the whole Costa del Sol if you'd like to explore more of Andalusia.

Loved Malaga - much more cultural than I anticipated and lots to see and do for a short break. Simply hundreads of places to eat and drink and watch the world go by. Super easy bus service from the airport to town, and excellent prompt train service for trips along the coast. Absolutely something for everyone here.

Beautiful riviera for foodies, shoppers and those who want to be near the beach. Beautiful Historical places to visit, such a nice atmosphere. Not good for the winter and in the summer it is too hot. Lovely place!

Malaga has a lot to offer, it has good places to eat out, the port with the beach is great. We liked most the food market in the center of town with all those amassing local produce. One can make also easy one day trips into the surrounding places like Granada, Ronda, Nerja etc.

Fui en otoño y aún así la Ciudad me dio una vibra muy veraniega. Es una ciudad hermosa, que combina perfectamente la historia que tiene con sus playas y la nueva escena de arte moderno que ofrece. No se puede perder la visita al alcazabar y al castillo de gibralfaro.

March 9, 2019

Málaga feels and looks like a Happy Place despite being so old. It has a very clean Metro station and good bus system. The city cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired once you go outside the center and into the neighborhoods, the tiled sidewalks are dirty with years of grime, spit and dog poop. Many Spaniards don't pick up Fido's poop, so be careful when you walk. The Muelle Uno and Paseo Antonio Banderas are nice, pretty walks, and do not miss a visit to the Atarazanas market where you'll see how fresh Spaniards eat in comparison to Americans. There you call also enjoy some tapas, juices, coffee, etc. Have chocolate and churros at Casa Aranda, in the center, or breakfast there with a tasty catalana (bread with tomato, olive oil and Iberian jam).
