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.
Málaga's fabulous art-deco theatre, Teatro Cervantes, will be playing host to internationally acclaimed violinist Jesús Reina, who is performing his Mendelssohn concerto from 5 to 6 April. www.teatrocervantes.com
Take a Costa detour if you're cruising by the coast and visit Benalmádena's Puerto Marina port with its upmarket shopping mall within easy strolling distance of the main harbour. The architecture here is a cross between Mr Whippy and Far East fantasy and there are plenty of cafés and bars if shopping is not your style.
El Chorro - This is an area of spectacular gorges, mountains and picturesque villages set around the Guadalhorce dam, just 50km northwest of Málaga. Take a look at the perilous El Camino del Rey that snakes along the gorge walls up to 100m above the river, named after Alfonso X111 who walked along here when he opened the dam in 1921. Don't attempt to do the same these days (unless you have serious abseiling ability, that is).
