Year-round heat

As the largest, southernmost city in mainland Europe, Málaga has a consistently warm climate. Temperatures are between 20°C and 30°C from April to November, and daytime in winter rarely goes below 12°C. This means that Málaga’s trees and plants stay green through most of the year, so you will be able to enjoy La Concepción botanical garden even in the middle of December. Make sure you spend some time at La Malagueta beach, and take a cheesy photo or two posing in the big stone letters on the sand. For a unique look around, take a horse-drawn carriage tour of the city.

Ancient and vibrant

Málaga is one of the oldest cities in the world, with the ruins of a 1st century BCE Roman theatre in the centre of town. Just a short walk away is the stunning Moorish structure, Gibralfaro Castle. Attached to the 11th century fortress of Alcazaba, it gives a fascinating insight into the Muslim heritage of the city. If you’re visiting these, it’s worth being prepared for a long, steep walk, so take plenty of water! The Cathedral in the heart of the city is some 500 years old, and for a more recent history, visit the ever-popular Museo Picasso Málaga.

Fiesta and flamenco

The Malagüeños know how to have fun, both during the day and the night. In the day, pop down to the Museo Interactivo de la Música by the seafront for a hands-on look at the city’s musical heritage. Tapas are a big deal here, so be sure to sample some of the best restaurants in town before grabbing some sangria and heading to a flamenco bar. The restaurant Vino Mio hosts nightly flamenco shows, but be prepared to be pulled up to dance! If you’re visiting in August, look out for the Fiera de Málaga, which is a lively celebration of all things Malagenean. Flamenco, tapas, and wine are all high on the agenda!

Insider Tip

The Andalusian coastline has plenty of spots that will make you feel at home. But at Antigua Casa de Guardia in Malaga there’s a hidden gem that will make you feel like you are in Spain in the 19th century. Come for a pre-dinner aperitif of Malaga wine from the array of casks behind the low wooden bar, your bill totted up with chalk marks on the counter, a true traditional experience that will put a smile on your face.

Food and drink

Muelle Uno features some of the finest restaurants of all the streets in Malaga. For fresh seafood, head straight to the source of the local catch, at the quaint old fishing villages of El Palo and Pedregalejo.

Shopping

Stylish shopping in the sun is an attractive prospect in Malaga, especially on the designer-lined street of Marques de Larios. As a major Spanish city, Malaga also has huge shopping centres and department stores.

Must-see

For a relaxed afternoon, the Los Jardines de La Concepción is the perfect spot to reflect and unwind. Admire the Moorish archways, then wander the rose gardens and fountains of the ancient Alcazaba Fortress.

Getting around

Here’s an interesting idea for getting around – Malaga is the first Andalucían city to feature rickshaw bicycles that you can hop in for free! The city also has an extensive bus, coach and train network.

Where is it?

The historical coastal city of Málaga is located in the centre of Spain’s Costa del Sol, and is just 130 kilometres away from the north of Africa. This privileged position means that the harbour is a hub of activity, with the port being one of the busiest in Europe.
