Malaga

Capital of the Costa del Sol

Modern yet historic, Málaga is a lively city famous for being the birthplace of Pablo Picasso. The pleasantly pedestrianized city center boasts an imposing Gothic cathedral surrounded by narrow winding streets. Spend your holiday exploring these alleys, which hide a myriad of tapas bars, shops, restaurants, museums, and art galleries. Relaxed and friendly, the city offers a multitude of other attractions, including picture-perfect beaches, hiking trails, and stunning architectural sites. Malaga is an ideal base for exploring other nearby places to visit, such as the Strait of Gibraltar and Tarifa. Exciting drives inland reveal hidden gems, including small restaurants attractively nestled in the rolling hills, which offer a truly authentic taste of Andalucía. Malaga is in Costa del Sol.

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
