  • Except when there are fairs in it, quite frequently, is not a destination in itself. But it is the natural step between two cornerstones of Malaga life: calle Larios in the old Malaga, and Pier one, the new Malaga born since the reform of the port which opened it to the city.

  • The Plaza de la Marina is one of the most beautiful plazas in Malaga because it is round and has fountains and flowers. It is at the intersection of several important streets.  more »
  • An alternative pit stop before heading into the old town or continuing along the quayside. Some nice buildings or cruise ships to rest your eyes on.  more »

  • This area is surprising. Even in summer, it is not too busy so while you can enjoy the bustle, it is never overwhelming. There is a relaxed atmosphere and despite being in a prime location, the restaurants and shops are reasonably priced and of course the beach is just around the corner.
  • Love the old town of malaga with the revamped marina nearby. The marina is a great asset to the town where you can walk or cycle for miles along the beach front or stop in one of the many barsand restaurants.
  • A very beautiful place. You can take good pictures with your friend and with the palm trees that makes you feel like you are in a very exotic country.
  • Friendly staff. Quick service. Gorgeous place. White linen service. Bit pricey.
  • Tiene un gran parking y la oficina de turismo. It has a big underground parking with a fountain inside, and also the tourist office

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.
