Malaga in a nutshell

The port of Malaga in the Spanish region of Andalucia is the largest city on the Costa del Sol. What can you expect? Beautiful beaches, architectural sites, fantastic art museums, tasty food, great shopping and of course plenty of Malaga beach hotels to choose from. Soak up the sun from some of the best beaches: San Julian, Playa del Guadalmar, Los Alamos, Malagueta, Fuengirola, Los Boliches. The list goes on! It may be a beach destination but Malaga is also an historic and culturally rich site. It is the birthplace of the renowned artist Picasso so a visit to his house and the Picasso Museum, which is situated in a restored palace, is a must. With over 30 museums in the city it will be tricky to get around them all. Fans of contemporary art should head to Centro de Arte Contemporaneo. History and culture lovers will enjoy stepping back in time at the archaeology museum which has pieces from prehistoric through to Roman and Moorish times. Some of Malaga's beautiful architecture includes the Renaissance Malaga cathedral and Castillo de Gibralfaro, which are the ruins of a Moorish castle.

Tips for your beach holiday to Malaga

Beach towel? Check. Sunscreen? Check. Malaga beach hotel booked? Check. Now for some insider tips on making the most of your holiday. One of the most renowned beaches for being spotlessly clean is La Playa de la Caleta on the Pablo Picasso promenade. It's a large beach and popular with locals too. At Playa el Dedo you will find plenty of bars and 'El Tintero', which is somewhat of a local institution. At this restaurant, waiters walk around shouting out plates of fish and salad. You simply point at the one you want and then pay per plate at the end of your meal. For a more exclusive beach go to El Candado. The upmarket restaurant 'Candado Beach' serves traditional yet gourmet cuisine but with a price tag to match! During your stay be sure to try the local delicacy of fresh sardines, which are usually skewered on bamboo and cooked over a fire. Wash it down with a class of the traditional Malaga sweet wine called Mosto.
