Destination guide

Ocean, mountains and Malaga

For years, Malaga was shunned by travelers in favor of the better-known cities like Madrid and Barcelona. Today, the city is no longer a hidden gem, with travelers coming from far and wide to explore the dozens of museums, the thriving art scene and some seriously good Andalusian cuisine. There's more beyond the city. If you grab a Province of Malaga vacation rental along the Costa del Sol, you'll have vast stretches of sandy beach, while the mountains of Axarquia offer secluded hideaways and wonderfully scenic walking trails. Wherever you visit, you won't regret joining the colorful annual festivities.

Things to do

Preserved Moorish fortress' and Roman theaters in Malaga

If you're looking for the highest density of attractions, look no further than Malaga. You could start with the Alcazaba, a beautifully preserved Moorish fortress on Gibralfaro Hill. Continue with a visit to 19th-century La Concepcion Botanic Garden, which houses more than 2,000 species of exotic flora from all corners of the world in its 25,000-square-meter grounds. To the south of town is the Roman Theater, which was thought to have been built in the 1st century A.D. and once saw gladiators battle it out to 1000s of cheering fans. Close off the day by swinging by the Picasso Museum in the old town.


An exhaustive list of adventures in Malaga

Adventure sport nuts have picked the right spot when they book a Province of Malaga vacation rental. Go climbing in the mountains, gallop on horseback, or hit the stark olive grove-laden landscape on ATV quad bikes. For something a little more sedate, you could always go rambling along the trails or, if you have deep pockets, take to the skies on one of the hot air balloon flights. If that sounds like too much effort, find one of the secluded coves or beaches and spend the sunny afternoons hanging out on the sand or swimming in the sea.


Try the idyllic spring climes of Malaga

The high season in Malaga lies during the summertime months, which bring blue skies and sizzling temperatures. Families from the bigger cities of Spain and the rest of Europe descend on the southern Spanish shores to catch the rays on the sun-soaked beaches. Don't discount the other seasons. Spring and fall can be delightful, with cooler, more agreeable temperatures and prices which drop off, along with the number of other visitors. For the best middle ground, try the end of March, when the Province of Malaga prices are at their best and the climate has reached the 70s.

Natural features

Land, sea and flying critters in Malaga

The waters of the Costa del Sol are a hive of activity. The warm Mediterranean Sea is favored by dolphins and if you dive in, you might even get face-to-face with one. Don't worry, these intelligent marine creatures are completely harmless. If you're a birdwatcher, try the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra. This important nesting spot for waterfowl is best seen from one of the observation towers. It's also home to the biggest colony of pink flamingos in Spain. Unfortunately, sea turtles are on the decline, but you can still get a close encounter at La Laja del Almirante in Mijas.
