Images Of Malaga

Ideally located beside the Mediterranean, Malaga is a sun seeker's paradise, and beautiful beaches stretch down along its coast. But this city has more to offer visitors than just sun, sea and sand, including numerous interesting attractions such as the imposing Gibralfaro Castle. Add to that the local cuisine and the lively bars and clubs, and you'll soon see why Malaga is the top city in Spain's Costa del Sol.

    Nice city

    I would definitely recommend Malaga if you're looking for a beautiful city by day and want to party by night. Taxi's are cheap and reliable and don't want to rip you off (which is refreshing:P) The city has some great sights. The Alcazaba fortress on a hill in the city centre could be worth a visit to the city just on it's own! And the nightlife is awesome 7 days a week.

    Insider Tip:Take the train from Malaga airport to the city centre. It's just 10/15 minutes and will cost you only €1,80

    Frindly city

    Loved the city center: friendly atmosphere and many landmarks to visit . Many options to eat and go out. Hot weather. The downside is the city main beach, Malagueta, could be good if the sand was cleaner. Full of trash all over the place. The city should put more effort on cleaning the beach and preventing people from throwing trash and cigarette tips to the sand. On the other side, the city streets were neat, cleaned every night.

    Malaga: The city for Spanish vacationers

    The thing I loved most is that most of the people I met around the city are from Spain. There are some touristy parts but nothing close to that of Barcelona. There's is plenty of history to check out but my recommendation is simply spend your time on the beach. Watch out for jellyfish in the water if you plan on swimming far, waves are small and water is clean (depending which part of the beach you are at).

    Insider Tip:Spend at least one day doing absolutely nothing but laying on the beach, maybe playing a little volleyball. Vendors walk by selling beer/water/soda so you only have to move if you get hungry. The restaurants on the beach are perfect as well. Tapas tapas tapas

    Málaga - definitely worth it

    My friends and I (18 years old) stayed at Málaga for a weekend only - but it was a great and unforgettable experience. Málaga is a perfect combination of culture, shopping, beach and partying. Together with sun and the spanish atmosphere it makes Málaga being a city we will definitely come back to one day.

    Insider Tip:Drinking a cocktail in one of the bars at Plaza de Uncibay is a great way to watch people and enjoy the atmosphere of a warm summer night in Málaga.
