Your guide to Málaga
All About Málaga
Málaga, located on the Andalusian Costa del Sol, is one of the oldest cities in the Western world. It’s said to have been discovered by the sea-faring Phoenicians back in 700 BC. Archaeological remains of this ancient civilization are still visible at several points around the city, with Phoenician walls still standing in the basement of the headquarters of the local university. Those interested in finding out more about the history of Málaga can pay a visit to one of the city’s many museums, including Museo de Málaga, the fifth largest museum in Spain, and its numerous cathedrals, including Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón and Iglesia de San Juan Bautista.
Beaches are another big attraction here — you can spend a relaxing afternoon at La Malagueta, which is within easy walking distance of the central shopping district. In the evenings, wash off the sand and prepare for a night of tasty tapas and vibrant nightlife in the super chic Málagaport area.
How do I get around Málaga?
Málaga–Costa del Sol Airport (AGP) connects the city to a number of major European destinations. There are also high-speed trains connecting the Mediterranean city with Madrid in a little over three hours.
Once you’ve arrived in the city, there are plenty of ways to get around. Even if your Málaga villa is located a little out of town, there’s bound to be a bus stop nearby to transport you to the centre. The city itself is very pedestrian friendly. Want to travel around in style? There are plenty of electric scooters for rent to help you get around too.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Málaga?
There’s never a bad time to pay a visit to Málaga. Every season has something special to offer visitors. The summer months are best suited to sun seekers looking to combine exploring ancient ruins with laid back afternoons at the nearby city beach. The balmy Mediterranean climate means winters here are relatively mild, with sunshine in abundance for most of the year. Even though December and January can be a little damp, the city’s festive celebrations add a warm glow to the town, especially Málaga’s nightly Christmas light show.
What are the top things to do in Málaga?
Mirador de Gibralfaro
The Mirador de Gibralfaro lookout offers jaw-dropping views of the Mediterranean coast and nearby towns. The path leading to the top is located in the center of town and is lined by luscious green trees which provide respite from the Mediterranean sun. If you’re visiting in the summer, it’s worth hitting this scenic spot early in order to dodge that midday sun, or head up around sunset.
Málagaport is one of the oldest ports in the Mediterranean, but recent renovations have transformed the area into one of the city’s sleekest spots. Modern bars and international restaurants line the palm-tree lined promenade.
La Malagueta is within easy walking distance of the city’s main sites, making it a popular spot in town. It can be reached by bus or on foot, depending on where your holiday rental villa in Málaga is situated. When you’ve worked up an appetite, a number of nearby bars and restaurants with views of the turquoise waters serve up local specials from dawn till dusk.
