The heart and essence of the Costa del Sol, Malaga provides a stunning backdrop of what the ‘Sun Coast’ is all about. It is the perfect place to enjoy a range of landscapes, from enjoying the sun as you laze around on the beach to soaking up the culture as you stroll around the city. Many choose to pass through Malaga to move on to their beach resort further along the Costa del Sol, but Malaga is a city which shouldn’t be overlooked.
Malaga is doused in tons of history and rich culture, aside from the nearby beaches, Malaga is home to Picasso’s house which has now been converted into a museum dedicated to the artist in the place he called home. Moorish and Roman ruins are dotted about the city too, adding a classic vibe to the city, mixing the old with the new.

The summer in Malaga is simply bliss, with temperatures hitting the early 30’s and a lack of rainfall.

The winter can get quite chilly in Malaga albeit warmer than other destinations.
