The Malaga area guide

Set on the south cost of Spain along the Costa del Sol, Malaga is the second largest city in the Andalusia region and undoubtedly its cultural centre. With a history dating back over 2000 years, Malaga is one of the oldest cities in Spain. Home to cultural figureheads of the past like Pablo Picasso, the city’s main attraction is its history and culture.

Things to do

Being a cultural focal point in Andalusia - and indeed, Spain as a whole - Malaga has no shortage of history, art, and culture to explore. With around 30 museums, numerous art galleries, and ancient buildings dating back to Roman times, you won’t be short of something to see and do.

Remnants of its past as a Roman and Islamic city are still visible today. The Castillo de Gibralfaro is a beautiful example of the Malaga’s Moorish past, with fortified walls that offer breath-taking views of the city from its position high up on the mountain of Gibralfaro. The Alcazaba of Malaga is also another stunning example of the city’s past and a must for anyone visiting the area. For those looking for something more modern, their automobile and fashion museum is a unique mix of exhibits that you’ll be hard pressed to find a match for.

Aside from the city’s historical past, the culture that thrives within Malaga is second to none. With festivals throughout the year, such as the August Malaga Fair and the Malaga Film Festival - which include Flamenco dancing, and premieres of regional films - there is so much to immerse yourself in while in the city. If you can’t wait for the festivities, then perhaps a wine tasting tour, or an Andalusian horse show would take your fancy. In Malaga, there’s always something going on, and your real worry will be deciding what to do next!

As with all coastal provinces in the Andalusia region, Malaga boasts beautiful sandy beaches and clear waters for those simply wanting to enjoy the Costa del Sol. With all year round sun and winters that would make any British person jealous, you’re rarely without a chance to take in the weather and work on a tan.

Places to eat

Food and wine are a point of pride for Malaga and here you can find excellent examples of the local takes on them. Home to Michelin-starred and local restaurants alike, there’s no shortage of fantastic eateries to taste that true Andalusian flavour.

Fish sits at the centre of a Malagan table, but you will also find famous Jamon and other Andalusian specialities to try your hand at. The El Palos district, for example, is famed for their Espeto dish, a sardine skewer cooked over coals, and you’ll find many a local favourite like this if you’re willing to explore Malaga’s stone streets. During the festival periods, food and wine play an integral part of the celebrations. Malaga’s culture cannot be fully appreciated without experiencing its culinary offerings, so be sure to sample as much as you can.


As a large city in Spain, Malaga has many shops and malls for all your shopping needs. It also has many designer and speciality shops for those looking more upmarket, or for something bespoke or unique. Calle Marqués de Larios is the main street for shopping and hosts the designer shops which many come to visit.

Getting there and around

Malaga is very well connected and has its own dedicated airport servicing flights from the UK, Europe, and worldwide destinations. In addition to this, there is a high speed train, a seaport, and local buses which allow travel both around Malaga and to nearby suburbs. This travel is made far easier by the fact that the services are very well run – a far cry from most city transport you might be used to. For those wanting to explore further afield, then a car is definitely recommended to enjoy more of the Andalusia region, giving you the freedom to go off on your own and discover what you like.
