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.
Don't miss the Easter processions held throughout the main coastal resorts, but particularly magnificent in the costa capital of Málaga (9-16 April).
Although it is the grand slam art museums, like the Pompidou and Picasso, that draw the crowds; the delightful small museum of local impressionist painter, Felix Revello de Toro (www.museorevellodetoro.net), is well worth a visit.
The historic town of Antequera is a speedy 45-minutes drive (or bus trip) from Malaga and boasts spectacular churches, a Moorish fortress and Roman archaeological remains.
