Where to Stay
The selection of apartments and villas in Malaga is so big that you will easily find accommodation to suit your exact needs. A modern yet historic city with a plentitude of beaches, it is also easy to pick accommodation in a scenic and interesting neighbourhood. Much of Malaga’s lively atmosphere is based around the Old Town, where apartments are available amongst historical buildings, shops and a thriving street-cafés. However, nearby Los Montes is perhaps the most popular district due to its spectacular vantage points and plentitude of restaurants. Another area of choice is around central La Malagueta Beach as it is home to a number of nearby eateries, bars and shops.
Things to Do
Malaga is the birthplace of the world-renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. Fans can visit the Museo Picasso Málaga Museum and see 285 works donated by members of Picasso's family. For those wishing to learn more about 19th century Spanish art with an Andalusian focus, the Carmen Thyssen Museum is highly recommended. History lovers should take the time to visit the Alcazaba, a palatial fortification which is Malaga’s most important landmark. Malaga Cathedral is another nice place to spend an hour or two. A national landmark, it is one of the best examples of Spanish religious art. Families travelling with children can easily keep them entertained at Tivoli World or Sea Life Benalmádena.
Eating and Drinking
Malaga has plenty of restaurants to choose from and is most noted for its seafood options. Its fried fish is proclaimed as the best in Spain and is a must have for first-time visitors. One of the best places to try this delicacy is on the seafront paseo at Pedregalejo. Pair your meals with a glass of the sweet Málaga wine (Falstaff's "sack"). Made from moscatel grapes and dispensed from huge barrels, it is served in most bars and restaurants. Due to its many beaches, Malaga is also home to chiringuitos or beach bars. They also serve fried fish in addition to roasted sardine skewers. Some may say that these bars are the best place to eat fried fish in the area. Visitors should also take the time to sample various aspects of the Mediterranean diet at a tapas bar.
It is very easy to travel around Malaga as transport options are abundant. The rail service is modern and effective and smoothly operates around Malaga and to other Spanish cities. Two metro lines also run from the centre to the west and south-west of the city. Travelling by bus is an equally good choice as it is easy to navigate the system. It is also possible to see the sites by buying a place on the hop on-hop off tourist bus. A more traditional way to see the city is by horse and carriage. This option can bring you to places which are car free zones. However, the best way to make the most of your time in Malaga is by exploring it on foot. This way you can freely go where you please, using only information books as your guide.
