Just a stone’s throw from the port of Malága, you’ll find a 1.2-kilometre-long beach where you can bask in the blazing sun. And don’t miss the Palmeral de Las Sorpresas – the Surprises palm grove – with its lush green park.

This is the city’s historic center. Situated on the banks of the Guadalmedina River, between the Centre and Bailén-Miraflores districts, the Trinidad district is home to many historic buildings with traditional architecture, such as relics of bygone eras and walls dating back to the Al-Andalus period, when the Iberian peninsula was Muslim. Visit the Church of the Trinity or the Church of San Pablo. Explore the corridors of time as you contemplate Roman and Arab remains. A good central district for accommodation in Malága.

If you’re looking to get away from the hyperactive hustle and bustle of the city centers, then you need to go off-center. The advantage of Malága is that from east to west, the coastline is urbanized. So away from the center, you can still find different atmospheres and everything you need to enjoy a good holiday.

El Palo is a typical fishermen’s district with a popular atmosphere. Here, you can sample succulent fish fresh from the water at the fish market: and yes, the neighborhood is still unspoiled by Malága’s growing urbanization. Restaurants and bars on the seafront, the perfect place to stay in Malága and enjoy the charms of Andalusia: sun, beach, warmth and tranquillity.
