    What to do in Malaga?

    1. Appreciate the amazing beaches. The entire Costa del Sol boasts some incredible beaches and Malaga is no exception. Visit La Misericordia if you want award-winning beauty, Los Alamos for beachside concerts in the summer, or take a trip to Puerto Banus for some celeb spotting.
    2. Explore the nightlife. Keep it classy and visit some of Picasso’s favourite bars, such as "Antigua Casa Guardia" or shake things up and hit somewhere like "ZZ Pub", a great club for jazz, funk, soul and salsa.
    3. Scale new heights and see the Alcazaba. This incredible Moorish fortress is a key part of Malaga’s skyline and offers incredible views, both inside the walls and of the city itself. The Castillo de Gibralfaro also tells a similar visual story and can be seen from all over the city.
    4. Visit the Cathedral. This interesting structure was built over a period of 150 years, so it’s a true mixture of architectural styles. It is also missing its planned southern tower because the money was instead spent to help colonies in America gain independence from the UK. Visitors can read more about the story and history whilst there.
    5. Discover the Ataranzas Market. This hub of life and activity is a key part of Spanish life and fresh produce and fair prices make the market very popular. Have a wander around looking at the colourful stalls or grab a drink and some tapas at one of the bars.
    6. See Picasso’s house, Casa Natal, and the Picasso museum. Here you’ll find a selection of his work, dating as far back as his childhood, lent by his family to the museum.

    Malaga local dishes

    When to go to Malaga?

    Malaga‘s hottest season is May to September, but temperatures are often in double figures for most of the year, so it’s a good place to visit at any time. It gets very little rain throughout the year. If you want to hit the beaches, it’s probably a good idea to avoid the winter season as you’ll need a jacket around that time, but spring and autumn are generally warm enough to ditch the layers.

    What to eat in Malaga?

    • Espeto. This local dish of grilled sardines is a regional speciality that’s often cooked on the seafront and enjoyed with lemon and white wine.
    • Tapas. Eating tapas is more than just a meal, it’s an experience. From berenjenas con miel (aubergine with honey) to boquerones fritos (fried anchovies), you’ll likely be given a small snack with every drink you buy. Be sure to also order tapas from the menu; ask in whichever bar or restaurant you visit for a recommendation, as many places have homemade specialities.
    • Ajoblanco. Literally ‘white garlic’, this almond, bread and garlic soup is enjoyed cold in the summer, usually with melon or grapes.
    • Molletes. A typical flatbread roll that is particularly soft and spongy, making it perfect for the typical Spanish breakfast of toasted bread with olive oil, salt and tomato.
