Cheap flights to Malaga
Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol and a magnet for millions of tourists each year.
Malaga is a charismatic and cosmopolitan city by the coast. One with great beaches, pumping nightlife, and some of Spain's most popular southern resorts and towns right on its doorstep.
The country's fifth largest city is also one with a rich history of Roman, Islamic and Spanish cultures spanning 2,000 years, each of which have left their mark on this architecturally eclectic place. But the real reason people come to Malaga is because it's a great place to holiday by the sea with activities to suit all - simple really. And with average year round temperatures of 20 degrees and 320 days of sunshine a year, it's not difficult to see why.
Torremolinos is home to an enormous flea market every Sunday from 9am-2pm. Held adjacent to the municipal sports centre, you can find just about everything here, ranging from second-hand flamenco dresses to furniture.
Enjoy the classic waltzes and polkas of Johann Strauss at a concert performed by the Strauss Festival Ballet at Teatro Cervantes on 4 January. See the website for the complete line-up of events (Marín Ramos Street s/n, +952 224 109, teatrocervantes.com).
Visit an area of spectacular gorges, remote mountain villages and ancient caves in the vicinity of Ronda, 100km west of Malaga. Don't miss the prehistoric Cueva de la Pilata (Pileta Cave) with its drawing of a huge fish that is thought to be some 15,000 years old.
Heading east of Málaga, Frigiliana is picture-postcard quaint with steep, narrow streets, brilliant red geraniums and charming, tucked-away bars and restaurants.
