Holidays in Malaga
Malaga Airport is the starting point for holidaymakers in the Costa del Sol and it sits in the centre of the area. Not only is it a gateway to popular holiday resorts, but it's a great destination in its own right, boasting a strong arts and culture scene, made famous by Picasso.
Lots to do on holiday in Malaga
Here you can expect the best of both worlds –a modern commercial city which still retains its Spanish architecture and culture, and easy access to all of the beaches, world class golf courses and theme parks that the region is so well known for.
If you are looking for culturally inspired holidays in Malaga, you won't be disappointed: from the magnificent Renaissance cathedral to the Picasso Museum, there are loads of places to tick off your agenda. Picasso is one of Malaga’s most famous sons, whilst the actor Antonio Banderas comes a close second. He makes a point of attending the Easter parade every year, so if you choose to visit at this time then you might catch a glimpse of him.
Holidays in Malaga have long been the choice of serious golfers –the immediate area is home to some of the best 18 hole courses in the world, so much so that the area has been dubbed the Costa del Golf.
Kids can have fun too while dad is improving his handicap: there are theme parks, safari parks and go-karting centres within easy reach of the city.
Although Malaga is a busy city, there are still green spaces to enjoy. In the centre of the city are the lush Alameda Gardens and on the outskirts are the La Concepion Botanical Gardens, a beautiful 19th century garden full of exotic flowers and Roman statues. As you'd expect from a lively city, there is enough shopping to satisfy the most addicted shopaholic, and for foodies there are restaurants to suit every taste, from haute cuisine to friendly and affordable tapas bars, offering dishes that you can mix and match.
There is a great clubbing scene in the city itself, and in the vicinity, so you won't be short of bars and clubs to visit. This is Andalusia, the true home of flamenco, so there are many flamenco bars, but for a great experience of this passionate dance the Kelipe Centro de Arte de Flamenco is the place to go.
