7. And what about sun, sea and beaches?
Once again, here you’ll find all that you’re looking for! Malaga stretches on and on along the Costa del Sol (sunny coast). You can start with the Malagueta, at less than a ten minutes’ walk from the centre, and move on towards your left or your right for kilometres. Most of the beaches are artificial, but very well kept, and you’ll always find a chiringuito near when you need refreshment!valentina-francescatti
Precious diamond of Andalucia – visit Granada
For me, a girl from northern Europe, all the countries in the south look so appealing. The warmth, the southern friendliness, palms on every street corner and beautiful seaside. These four things are the key to perfect holiday. That is why few months back I decided to pack my stuff and visit Andalucia. It is the most southern part of Spain, which borders Gibraltar (it makes a really nice one day trip going there). There are three main cities of the region – Malaga, Granada and Seville. I was lucky to visit all three of them.Ruta
10 Ideas For Day Trips In The Province Of Malaga, Spain
The region of Malaga, in southern Spain (Andalucía) and its capital with the same name, are extremely popular all around the year. In winter mainly because of its mild climate (with an average maximum temperature of 17° Celsius in both December and January) – in summer because of its beaches. And let’s not forget the fiestas, the cheap drinks, the tapas and the palm trees.Yolanda Carhell
Things not to miss in Malaga
I have no clue why I decided to go to Malaga in the first place – because travellers usually go to Sevilla or Grenada when they visit Andalusia. But I followed my intuition and it was totally worth it.margaux-noee
Fuengirola, Costa Del Sol.
A bustling Spanish town located approximately 24kms from the City of Malaga, Fuengirola is a popular destination for British holiday makers seeking a sunshine retreat from the mundane 9-5. A once small fishing town now aligned with busy bars, restaurants and an National Geographic award winning zoo – Fuengirola is a must visit holiday destination for all ages.Kristie Lauren
Olive Trees after Olive Trees after Olive Trees…
It is very easy to overlook just how large Spain is, particularly the sheer diversity of its landscape. The first time I went to Jaén was with my family. We hired a car and drove the distance from Malaga airport and oh man, it was worth it. As we travelled from the south coast further north, the scenery rapidly changed, and what I saw was not what I expected one bit. I did not envisage rows and rows of never-ending olive trees. More than 66 million to be exact. Okay, so we didn’t drive past the entire 66 million but there was still a TONNE of olive trees. In all honesty, I did little to no research on Jaén before going. I remember googling the town I was staying in, thinking it looked decent and assuming it would all be fine. The beautiful olive-filled scenery was a bonus and made for an exciting car ride.Talita Henderson
