Planning the perfect holiday in Malaga

Feb, 10 || No Comments |

Ever since budget airlines have started flights to Malaga, this little coastal town in Spain has become a hub for sun-seekers and tourists looking to escape the drudgery of everyday life. Malaga boasts of stunning beaches, cheap accommodation, and good food. Besides there are a number of excursions to neighbouring Andalucian villages and Spanish National Parks, which makes it perfect for travellers who like exploring new places.

The world-famous fortress Alhambra in Granada can easily be explored on a day trip from Malaga. Granada is less than two hours away from Malaga – however you need to make sure you start early and reach the city of Granada before 11 am. This will give you a lot of time to explore the fortress, its palatial gardens, and surroundings.

The city of Ronda in the province of Malaga makes for another great day trip. It’s one of the oldest cities in Spain. You would have definitely seen photos of this quaint and historical city on postcards. Ronda’s crumbling town, its alleyways, and buildings are straight out of a fairy-tale. The focal point, however, is its location. The city is perched on top of a 100 metre gorge, which makes the approach incredibly scenic and dramatic

However if you’re one of those tourists who enjoy spending your time drinking endless cocktails by the beach, Malaga is perfect for you too. The sea-side town might be one of the most populous in Southern Spain but it is nowhere near as crowded as Barcelona or Madrid. Moreover frequent flights to Malaga make a beach holiday in Malaga perfect for beach bums.

Malaga has a number of beaches to choose from but we would recommend renting a car and exploring the stunning beaches in the area around Malaga. Costa Del Sol’s beaches need no introduction but some of our favourites include Bolonia in Costa Del La Luz, Playa Del Christo, and Torremolinos. Of the three, Bolonia is the farthest as it is a 2-3 hour drive away from Malaga. But the beach is definitely one of the more secluded and prettier beaches in the area. Besides the drive will take you through the Spanish hinterland. Don’t forget to stop at a quaint tapas bar for a tipple or two as you make your way to Bolonia beach.

Beaches and day trips are all ok but you can’t wrap up your holiday in Malaga without binging on some rustic Spanish food. There are a number of food tours offered by enterprising locals in the city of Malaga – these offer the perfect introduction to local cuisine and provide a crash course in the best restaurants of the area. We highly recommend hopping on one. They’re especially great if you’re not fluent in Spanish because the guides are locals who are well acquainted with local gourmet specialities and know the location (and menu) of hole-in-the-wall tapas bars and restaurants hidden from tourists.

Whatever you do, your holiday to Malaga is bound to be fun – one that you will remember for a long time to come.
