You can feel lost in your own bed

or you can find home in the streets of an unknown city.

It’s up to you.

Málaga for some people being a gateway to the beach resorts of the Costa del Sol, with few venturing far from the airport or into the city, – this once-shabby port has undergone something of a reinvention. There’s a sparkling new waterfront and a thriving art scene, letting you experience exhibits dedicated to glass and crystal, classic cars, contemporary installations, and, of course, the works of Picasso, who was born here.

Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the world, founded in the 8th century by the Phoenicians.

Wander past banana trees and beautiful fountains as you walk through Paseo del Parque, then hit the old city to quench your thirst at a Spanish tavern.

Malaga experiences a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot, sunny subtropical summers. The perfect time to travel Malaga should visit between March and October when the days are warm, and the evenings just warm enough to make nighttime adventures easy and enjoyable.

Whilst in Malaga, you can take a short road trip to the mountainous village of Ronda, divided by the gorge of the Tajo River, stroll along the beautiful coast line and explore the old fishing villages of El Palo or hire a car and go for a visit to Nerja and Frigiliana, two of the most magnificent towns in Andalusia located about 60 kilometers out of Malaga.

Nerja is a picturesque coast town, well-distinguished for being a fishing village. Remembering this maximum essence, its winding streets go all over the historic downtown.
The finest panoramic views of Nerja’s coast profile and the Mediterranean are admired from El Balcón de Europa.

Frigiliana is not just the little town itself that is picture postcard pretty. The views down over the countryside, coast and Mediterranean sea are purely spectacular. On an especially clear day, you may even see the North African coastline.

As you wander along the picturesque streets, taking in all the colours, that contrast perfectly with the pristinely kept whitewashed houses, pastel colours and verdant Mediterranean flowers and shrubs you understand why it has been voted the prettiest village in Andalucia.


















DRINK & DINE

BREAKFAST

Recyclo Bike Cafe

A a pretty zen atmosphere paired with interesting wall decor from local artists,
I would 100% recommend this place to anybody travelling to Malaga who has a passion for 2 wheels and good food.

The cafe offers great coffees and excellent value for menu del dia, various breakfast options, delicious tapas, burritos, burgers and salads for dinner.

Cafe con Libros

Cool setting directly at plaza de la Merced with nice interior and exterior furnishing. Good selection for breakfast/ brunch/ lunch and nice drinks menu including smoothies, exotic juices and iced coffees. With its charming ambiance created by its artsy and contemporary library-style decor, this small cafe is a memorable location, offering a vast collection of books and newspapers for guests to borrow.

 

LUNCH

Cafeteria Jardin Botanico La Concepcion

The setting is nice with seating inside the canopy or outside but with parasols so always not too hot you will be surprised to find a really nice cafe serving fresh homemade food. The menu has a selection of lunch style meals such as quiche and salad, goats cheese salad, lasagne etc plus a good variety of sandwiches in really nice bread rolls,a soup each day and some truly delicious looking homemade cakes and desserts. The food is all fairly priced, again a surprise for a cafe inside a tourist attraction. There’s a good selection of drinks including freshly made smoothies.

 

DINNER

Astrid Taperia Organica

Fresh, organic food with many options for veggies as well as protein. The way everything is prepared is an art, from the breakfast buffet (Th-Sun, only 4.50!), to the fine sandwiches, soups, salads, and curries offered for dinner. The owners are lovely hosts, making you feel as if you are eating in their very own, sun-lit dining room. A complete treasure of a place.

El Cabra, Pedregalejo

Looking for amazing sea food grilled on an open fire right on the beach this place really hits the spot. The service is outstanding, the fish fresh and the prices reasonable considering you can actually run your fingers through the sand you are so close to the beach. The Sardinas en la espada, and the almejas de malaga are a must.
