Destination guide

Explore Málaga from holiday lettings

In a Flamenco-esque twirl of Spanish energy and Mudejar towers, Málaga stakes its claim to the cultural capital of the whole of southern Spain. As if to say, "move over Cadiz, move over Seville", this confident and classical city proudly touts its grand Alcazaba and the opulent Baroque domes of the great Malaga Cathedral – have the camera ready. Meanwhile, Picasso's masterworks and oodles of avant-garde art linger in the museums, and tapas bars hum until the early hours. Want beaches? Málaga holiday rentals are also a base for exploring the world-famous Costa del Sol.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Málaga holiday lettings

As many as 30 museums make their home in Málaga, imbuing it with a cultural undercurrent that other Spanish cities simply can't match. Start – of course – at the Picasso Museum. It's just off the Plaza de La Merced, where the master was born, offering visions of his surrealist sketches and Dadaesque works. There's also the Malaga Wine Museum for those who prefer to sip their way through local heritage. And there's the acclaimed Museo Carmen Thyssen, a place to explore the ins and outs of Andalusian creativity.


Things to do near Málaga holiday homes

Málaga's downtown is like the canvass of a Picasso painting – bustling, colourful and scrawled with intriguing aspects. Bag yourself Málaga holiday rentals in the gilded Old Town if you really want to be in the midst of it all. That's a land of filigreed balconies and ornamental churches, where every corner you turn will reveal another Moorish treasure or babbling Baroque fountain. The streets are narrowed by rows of cafes and bars. Some pulse late with sloshing sangria. Others hone in on the delights of fine-dining, bringing a modern and exciting edge to the traditionalism of Andalusia.


Local weather for your stay in Málaga holiday homes

Even when the resort towns of the Costa del Sol have shut up shop for the winter season, Málaga stays open for business. In fact, it's such a lived-in, working Spanish city, awash with such culture, that a visit between December and March promises to be just as immersive as one in midsummer. That said, far more people come between May and August. The added bonus of beach-worthy temperatures in the 20s and 30s can be a tad too hard to resist.

Natural features

From mountains to waves in Málaga

The wide sands of Malagueta and La Caleta combine to give this corner of Andalusia the sort of yellow-hued bays you'd expect of the Costa del Sol. You can even bag Málaga holiday rentals within walking distance of the beaches. If you prefer the mountains, then look north. That's where the Montes de Málaga Natural Park extends into the sierras. It's criss-crossed by walking trails, like the Sendero de Torrijos and the Sendero de Contadores, which pass waterfalls and poplar groves and streams aplenty.

Málaga boasts beautiful beaches for sunbathing and swimming. Holiday homes can be found near places like Playa de La Carihuela, a popular beach with a boardwalk and amenities, and Playa de La Malagueta, a sandy beach with seafood shacks and a playground.
