Fly to Malaga

Why visit Malaga?

Because the sun, sea and sand has been joined by museums (now over 30 of them), modern art galleries and a modish food scene.

Local hotspot

Soho around the docks, like its London namesake, used to be a distinctly gritty area but it’s gone all arty with murals from acclaimed street artists such as Shepard Fairey, from the US.

You probably didn't know

At the marina there’s a statue of Hans Christian Andersen with the inscription, “In none of the Spanish towns have I been so happy, so entirely at home, as here in Malaga.”

Things to do in Malaga


The clean, white walls and low, Japanese-style chairs of Oleo restaurant located in Malaga, fit perfectly with modern art gallery CAC (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo) next door. However, the food is very much substance over style, with the soft, slow-cooked rib in garlic particularly good.


Citron is on the corner of Plaza de la Merced, where Picasso was born. And he’d surely have approved of the bright colour scheme and modern artwork. The Asian influence in dishes such as sweet, sticky stir-fried pork might have confused him but these days there’s more to Malaga than just tapas.

Casa Aranda

When you fly to Malaga, do not miss Casa Aranda boasts they've been serving breakfasts for 75 years – ahough passers-by might wonder how anybody ever found them, down an alley off Alhóndiga Street. Perhaps the noise helps, from the cheery, white-jacketed waiters shouting orders for more “chocolate con churros”.

Bar Calle Bruselas

As if to prove that everything is exotic to somebody, Bar Calle Bruselas has been one of Malaga’s coolest bars for the last 20 years. That’s despite… or because of… the fact that the Belgian owner has decorated it as a Belgian street, complete with street-lamps. The Belgian beers might have more to do with it.

Terraza Larios

The décor at Terraza Larios, on the roof of the Larios Room Mate Hotel in Malaga, is all square white sofas and little round tables. Distinctly minimalist, perhaps so as not to distract from the perfect view of the illuminated Malga Cathedral, just opposite.

Atarazanas market

Being in Malaga, visit Atarazanas market which has stained-glass windows that make it look like an enormous, rowdy temple. And it really is a temple of sorts, for local Malaga foodies. All of the 260 stalls, selling fruit and veg, fish, meat and much more, are clearly sacred. And there are plenty of small bars to sit and watch the worshippers, too.

The 11th-century Gibralfaro is a proper, no-nonsense Malaga castle that still could repel a hoard of angry Goths if they looked at it funny. Walk along the exterior wall and you’ll reach the elegant courtyards and flower gardens of the Alcazaba palace – another side of Moorish architecture.

Jardin de la Concepción

High in the mountains above Malaga, the Jardin de la Concepción is a garden laid out in the English style, but many of its subtropical plants would never survive in England. It’s particularly impressive if you visit Malaga in  spring when the wisteria turn large swathes of the garden purple.

Tivoli World

One of the best value of the Costa’s numerous theme parks is Tivoli World in Benalmadena, about 30 minutes’ drive west of Malaga. Here you’ll find a range of attractions from water slides to flamenco shows. Admission is 6.95 euros; children under a metre-high go free.

Centre Pompidou

The centrepiece of Malaga’s plan to become “the city of museums” is the appearance of a pop-up Pompidou. With its odd-angled white walls and what looks like a transparent Rubik’s cube on the roof, it’s a worthy offshoot of the Paris original. More than 100 works borrowed from France, by artists including Marc Chagall and Frida Kahlo, will be here for at least the next five years.

The Picasso Museum

Although Picasso’s greatest paintings are easily found in Paris or Barcelona, the Picasso Museum here in the master’s hometown Malaga, shows a different side to his work. Playful scrawls and dirty jokes are very much in evidence, as well as classics such as the warm painting of his son “Paulo con gorro blanco”.
