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 - one of our favourite places to experience this culture is El Palo beach. And with average year round temperatures of 20 degrees and 320 days of sunshine a year, it's not difficult to see why.
Pamper yourself with a visit to Hammam Al Andalus, which offers thermal baths, steam room, various massages and relaxation room, complete with pots of complimentary mint tea (5 Plaza de los Martiris, malaga.hammamalandalus.com).
Marbella's fabulous Starlite Festival has a great musical line-up this summer with acts including The Beach Boys, Chucho Valdés, Albert Hammond and the Pet Shop Boys. starlitefestival.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.
Visit the extraordinary (family-owned and run) Cueva de la Pileta, near Ronda. The palaeolithic paintings of horses, goats and fish date back 25,000 years (Benaojan, cuevadelapileta.org).
