Set at the foot of the Montes de Malaga mountains to the north, between the river valleys of Guadalmedina and Guadalhorce, the capital of Malaga Province is the southernmost city in Spain, situated in the heart of the Costa del Sol. Once regarded by tourists as nothing more than a transit hub, Malaga has flourished into a region of culture, gastronomy and leisure, with a vibrant energy that can be felt from the golden beaches right down to the charming streets of the old town quarter. From the Michelin-starred restaurants to the world-famous art museums and abundance of cocktail bars and boutiques, Malaga is the full package when it comes to sun-drenched city escapes.
Whether you stay in one of our upscale apartments in Malaga’s centre, or a secluded terraced villa in the countryside, our Clickstay holiday rentals are just minutes away from the main attractions, authentic tapas bars and sun-kissed coast. If you fancy a change of scenery from the beach-lined Costa del Sol, soak up some culture at Paseo del Parque, with its gardens, fountains and sculptures, located east of the Plaza de la Marina. A must-see is the famous Picasso Museum, housing over 200 pieces of work by one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. For panoramic views across Malaga and the Mediterranean, a visit to the 11th Century Moorish fortress Alcazaba, overlooking the Muelle Uno port is a must. Let your hair down and dance the night away at the beach bars scattered along the coast, or mingle with friendly locals at the nightclubs and live music bars of the old town.
One of the best things about the coastal capital is its proximity to the sparkling beaches along the Costa del Sol. Relax and unwind on the golden, almost white sands before recharging your batteries at one of the chiringuitos on family-friendly, Blue Flag beach Malagueta, located by the port. For a day of water sports, La Caleta beach, a little further eastwards, offers everything from scuba diving to water skiing, sailing and windsurfing. For a change of scene, follow the stretch of coast to Torremolinos and Marbella, for a livelier crowd and plenty of beach front bars.
For most visitors, Malaga is a gateway to the beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol, with few tourists venturing far from the airport or into the city. Well, they’re missing a trick because this once down-at-heel port has been transformed into a vibrant city, with over 30 art museums, a fascinating history and modern port boasting a wide promenade with plenty of restaurants, boutiques and cafes.
Malaga has always been fiercely proud of its artistic heritage. As the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, it is naturally a hotspot for art lovers. Málaga boasts more museums than any other city in Andalucia; the most famous being the Picasso Museum in the heart of the city, home to a collection of his life-time works. Learn about the city’s rich agricultural history at the Museum of Wine, or visit the Carmen Thyssen Museum for its 19th century paintings. If modern is more your bag, then the Contemporary Art Centre is for you. Petrol heads will love the Automobile Museum exhibiting more than 80 vehicles dating from the end of the 19th century to our present day.
The first stop for many while in Malaga is the 11th Century Moorish Alcazaba fortress in the heart of the city, nestled on a hill overlooking the port. Catch the local city bus, take a taxi, or if you’re feeling energetic you can walk there and take a scenic stroll to the top, for some spectacular views across the Costa del Sol and the Mediterranean Sea. The fortress's maze of gardens is dotted with pretty fountains, where lies the 14th century Gibralfaro Castle. Nicknamed ‘The One-Armed Lady’ due to one of its towers being destroyed, the 16th century Malaga Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church and the perfect example of renaissance and baroque architecture with its Moorish walls that stretch from Alcazaba fortress to Gibralfaro Castle.
