A port city with a vibrant atmosphere, Malaga’s grand castles and gorgeous gardens sit at the edge of the shimmering Mediterranean.


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.


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.


Fiesta and flamenco

The Malagüeños know how to have fun, both during the day and the night. 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!


Fit for a feast

Tapas are a big deal here so you will never go hungry. For the best seafood in town, go straight to the coastline. Muelle Uno is Malaga’s modernised area around the harbour. Stroll along a waterfront of gleaming yachts for your pick of upmarket eateries.


Spanish Shopping

La Calle Larios is the main (car-free) thoroughfare for shopping in Malaga, where you’ll find big brands alongside traditional cafés. If you’re on the lookout for more labels, it’s just a couple of minutes to Calle Nueva. No matter what you are looking for, you are sure to find something to suit you!


The birthplace of beautiful art

Malaga was the birthplace of Picasso and the city celebrates this fact with two museums dedicated to the great man. The Picasso Foundation has a collection of his pieces in the very house he was born. Meanwhile, the Museo Picasso has a much larger selection of the artist’s more famous works.

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.

Getting around

Hop on a Segway if you’re feeling modern or, conversely, embrace a bygone era and ride by horse and carriage. Although walking is the ultimate way to truly see the sights, Málaga is famous for its fun and frivolous bike taxis. Known as ‘Trixis’, you’ll be towed by bike as you sit in a pod-like cart.

Insider Tips

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.
