Sightseeing in Malaga
Become a culture vulture at one of the 20 museums in Malaga including the likes of the Picasso Museum and the Interactive Museum of Music among many more. Alternatively, head back in time with a visit to the city's two Moorish Castles, Alcazaba and Gibralfaro Castle, both of which are nestled on the hillside overlooking the city. Alcazaba is in excellent condition and boasts lush gardens within the grounds. Be sure to include a trip to the Roman theatre also.
Picasso's birthplace makes for an interesting addition to your time here. It's cheap to enter and contains a vast collection of items from his childhood as well as some paintings created during his earlier years.
Soak up the sun with some time spent on the golden sands of the nearest beaches. La Malagueta is the nearest to the city and therefore it can become incredibly busy but there are many beaches to choose from and the further east you go, the quieter they become.
Day Trips From Malaga
Torremolinos is a popular spot to visit and is just a short 15 minute drive away. One of the first resorts to be developed back in the sixties, it's now incredibly popular for its gorgeous sandy beaches and pulsing nightlife.
El Chorro gorge is a fascinating natural landmark located less than an hour's drive from the city. The entire area is fantastic for rock climbing but there are also some great hikes if you prefer something a little less adrenaline inducing! The "King's Walkway" which traipses across the height of the gorge offers the best of both worlds.
Drive to Fuengirola, 25km south of the airport. It's a cosmopolitan town renowned for its choice of tapas bars and brilliant little boutiques, in addition to the gorgeous beaches.
Within 40 minutes, you will find yourself in the luxurious town of Marbella. With its small cobbled streets, it has the atmosphere of a quaint village. From here, visit Puerto Banus, a famous marina to the west of Marbella. Head to the shopping complex and spoil yourself.
Travel down the coast for just over an hour and you will reach Estepona, a town full of character and charm.
