Costa Excursions Team
Malaga belongs to the cohort of Europe’s oldest cities, and it has equally been home to a few outstanding cultures, like the Moors, the Romans, the Carthaginians. Each of these cultures has left a rich legacy thatis quite visible in Malaga’s cityscape.As a result, the city boasts having a lot of sights to see and things to do, and they are scattered across the whole province rather than concentrated in the downtown area! Malaga is full of unexpected surprises. Let’s unveil some of them together with Costa Excursions!
The Alcazaba Palace
Conceived by the Emir of Cordoba in the 8th century, the Alcazaba fortified palace was erected by the Hammudid dynasty as their residence and the symbol of their might. Up to now, it remains the best preserved Moorish fortress in Spain, which has survived fierce attacks of the pirates. According to many, this is the most wonderful landmark in Malaga, which sends a distinct cultural message and serves as the best way to connect epochs and civilizations. The walls and towers, gardens and patios of the Alcazaba are open to tourists, so from the Moorish fort one can get unforgettable views of Malaga located below the hill.
Castillo de Gibralfaro
Castillo de Gibralfaro is Alcazaba’s younger brother, both by age and rank. The castle was built about three centuries later as a permanent home to troops protecting the Alcazaba fortress. It is yet another reminder of Malaga’s Moorish past, which can tell an incredible story of merciless battles and Islamic culture and lifestyle. The castle overlooks the city, so you can have a delicious meal and sip a drink in one of its terraced restaurants.
Ruins of the Roman Theater
Malaga’s oldest manmade construction is El Teatro Romano in CalleAlcazabilla street, originating from the 1st century BC. It is comfortably located near the famous Alcazaba fort to create one of the most demanded tourist destinations in the region. El Teatro Romano is a unique landmark of Roman Hispania where you can freely wander and travel back in time. Most surprisingly, the theater is still functional and is sometimes used for open-air summer performances.
Mercado Central de Atarazanas
If you dream of shopping like the locals do, you should visit the Atarazanas market, a masterpiece of the 19th-century architecture influenced by the Parisian Les Halles market. Mercado Central de Atarazanas has been added to the Spanish Heritage Register, and it definitely stands out among other 15 food markets. It would be correct to say that the building itself is much older, and its marble entrance, for instance, belongs to the Nasrid epoch. Back in those times, the Mediterranean Sea reached the present-day market. The building was used as a navy workshop and was first dubbed “Atarazanas”, which is translated from Arabic as “boat arsenal”. Best selections of meat, dairy products, seafood, fruits and vegetables can be found here, spiced and sprinkled with Malaga’s authentic noises, colors, and flavors. This is where you can get an unmistaken spirit of southern Spain and see the finest example of a true cultural melting pot in action.
The Cathedral of Malaga
Malaga’s main Catholic cathedral has earned the reputation of one the most impressive churches in the south of Spain. Being also one of the tallest religious sites in the region, it towers over the historic part of the city and illustrates unsurpassed Renaissance and Baroque styles in architecture. The Cathedral of Malaga was rebuilt from an existing mosque and was intended to get two towers. However, only one has been completed due to lack of money, so the basilica is metaphorically called “the single-armed lady”
Picasso’s Birth House
When you come to Malaga, you immediately feel that the city is closely connected with art, and not without reason. There are more than 30 museums in Malaga. On top of that, the city enjoys the status of Pablo Picasso’s birthplace. His legacy is seen everywhere, and his house with 12 exhibition rooms is an official heritage venue and a museum, where loyal fans of the prolific modern artist can get immersed in the atmosphere of his life and contemplate his interesting works and personal belongings. An acquaintance with the world of art can be continued in the Contemporary Art Center of Malaga or the newly opened Museum of Malaga.
Paseo del Parque
Paseo del Parque is an ideal place to relax from the city noises and traffic. This kilometer-long walkway starts at the Plaza de la Marina and leads you to the Malagueta district. Along the promenade, you will enjoy the shade of palm trees, admire wonderful gardens with parrots, get cooled at the fountains, and see endless subtropical species of flora. Next to the Town Hall, you can also find the Gardens of Pedro Luis Alonso, which boast having a great collection of roses.
Plaza de Toros de La Malagueta
A lot of cities in the south of Spain have their own bullring, and Malaga is no exception. La Malagueta, which can admit 14,000 spectators, was declared an object of Spain’s cultural heritage back in the 19th century. It was built in the Neo-MudéjarSpanish building style, which is typical of Andalusia and was evidently influenced by Arabic architecture.
Jardin Botanico La Concepcion
Malaga’s most popular botanical garden, Jardin Botanico La Concepcion, is a real paradise with a unique collection of plant species from Europe, Asia, Africa, Americas, Australia and Oceania. Back in the 19th century, when it was created, the park served as a meeting point for influential politicians, outstanding artists and illustrious noblemen. This contributed to developing the infrastructure of the park, including the greenhouses, the Palace House, and the Loringian Museum.
Playa de la Malagueta
Visiting Malaga, you cannot abandon the opportunity to relax on a particularly good Costa Del Sol beach in the whole of Andalusia, the Playa de la Malagueta. This is the place where any ice-cream tastes great, any sunbed feels comfortable, and the sea just looks amazing. This sandy beach enjoys great popularity among the locals and is highly praised by tourists, who choose the site for water sports, kitesurfing, paragliding, or surfing. Except Playa de la Malagueta, the locals also prefer La Misericordia, El Palo, and Pedregalejo beaches. They are ideal places with many seafront restaurants and chiringuitos where you can eat a paella or grilled sardine skewers.
If you are planning to shop seriously, you need to spend a few hours in Muelle Uno, the most famous mall in Malaga with an infinite number of trendy shops, boutiques and restaurants. This area was advisedly created for the tourists traveling by sea and coming off their huge cruise ships right into the bustle of Muelle Uno. Moreover, from the mall you can easily get to the futuristic Pompidou Center, located in a glass cube, or the famous Jose Carlos Garcia restaurant, awarded with a Michelin star. Alternatively, you can also stop at Artsenal, which is another contemporary cultural space where musical performances, art exhibitions, and intercultural events take place.
Watching buildings, nature, and people is dramatically not enough, when you are in Malaga. Take every opportunity to feel the taste of Andalusia, discover the hidden gems and hear what the city whispers to its most inquisitive visitors. Believe us, there is so much to do if you want your stay to be a little more dynamic and culturally-specific. Costa Excursions gives you a short review of what tourists most often do in Malaga!
Relax at Hammam al Andalus Arab baths
Inside a beautiful building, which exemplifies the best traditions of Moorish architecture, you will find different temperature pools, a steam room, and a room for tasting mint tea. This is the best place to relax after doing the sights and just float on your back, staring at the marvelous Moorish ceiling!
Try Espetos in a Chiringuito
Traveling is about trying local foods and learning new ways, so,when in Malaga,you cannot miss the chance to taste espetos. To make this experience as authentic as possible, go to a typical beachfront bar, also known as chiringuito, and inquire about grilled sardines. They are skewered on long canes and grilled over the embers. Espetos are served with lemon juice and white wine. You will never forget them!
Spin on Mirador Princess
Malaga’s Ferris wheel, called Mirador Princess, is located in the port area and belongs to the city’s most recognizable attractions. Its air-conditioned cars offer 360o panoramas of the 30-kilometer distance and the best views you can dream of!
Taste the Drink of Gods at Museo del Vino
Malaga’s Museum of Wine is one of a kind. It not only tells you the story of winemaking in the region, shows the relevant equipment, shares the local legends and showcases the best samples of grapes, but also offers two tastings included in the cost of your entrance ticket.
Visit a Flamenco Show in Malaga
You are in Malaga, the homeplace of flamenco! Why not watch the traditional Flamenco dance here? There is no better city in the world to do this! If you want to get a memorable flamenco outing, go to Kelipe Centro de Arte. Their Flamenco shows are well-known all over the city.
Play Golf at Parador de Málaga
Malaga is frequently thought to have the best golf courses in Spain, so you are highly encouraged to try out some of the top-notch golf venues on the Costa del Sol. Best known is perhaps Parador de Málaga, a classical 18-hole golf course with dunes, eucalyptus trees and palms, which was opened to public back in the 1920s.
Take a Boat Trip across Malaga’s bay
The Mediterranean Sea is as spectacular as one can possibly imagine. Take a boat and explore Malaga’s Bay, overlooking the city skyline from water. The pleasant Mediterranean Sea breeze on your face is something you must feel when in the south of Spain!
Witness Semana Santa in Malaga
Holy Week in Andalusia is an incomparable experience due to powerful Catholic brotherhoods, religious masses of people, and spectacular traditions of celebrating. You will see a lot of festive processions, colorful floats, lavishly decorated Virgin statues and exuberant Malagueños celebrating literally from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
Take Part in Feria de Agosto
Feria de Agosto is the reason why August is the best time to visit Malaga. Back in the Middle Ages, Malaga happened to be one of the last Spanish cities to resume Christian rule and leave behind the Moorish era. When this finally happened in the August of 1487, there was born a tradition to celebrate the return to Christianity with a festival. Today, the fiesta lasts for a week and displays the best of what Andalusian culture has to offer. There are street flamenco performances, bullfights, thousands of paper lanterns, and tons of flowers.
Discover Cruzcampo Brewery
Cruzcampo Fábrica brewery is more than a glass of cold beer on a hot Andalusian afternoon. Once you happen to be in the SoHo district of Malaga, take Ataranzas market as the starting point, walk for a few minutes and you will be rewarded with the best local premium craft beers and a gastropub.
See the sunset in a rooftop bar
What can be better than sipping cocktails or eating tapas while watching the sun fall into the waters of the Mediterranean Sea? Splendid views of the city and of the bay are offered in numerous rooftop bars, which become especially appealing at sunset. One of the most popular options is the rooftop bar at Molina Lario Hotel.
Even though Malaga has all sorts of tourist attractions, favorable Mediterranean climate, and superb beaches and justifies its status of a tourist hub in Andalusia, there is a myriad of minor destinations – villages and towns – which are worth visiting, if you have planned a few day trips. Many of them are unique spots of worldwide importance, notable primarily for their landscapes, architecture, and cultural appeal.
Whether you would like to explore the Costa del Sol, see the ancient monuments of the south of Spain, or discover whitewashed villages, Malaga is an ideal starting point. Costa Excursions knows where exactly you can head.
If you can afford approximately 2.5 hours for this trip, go for it. Seville deserves this effort! You can explore the Santa Cruz district, see the charming streets, visit top-rank restaurants, amazing museums, and incomparable flamenco shows. Do not miss the chance to see the Cathedral of Seville, the world’s third largest church, notable as the place where the remains of Christopher Columbus are kept.Seville has been dubbed as the sunniest city in Europe, so it enjoys the glory of a tourist-friendly destination all year long.
A 1.5-hour trip will bring you from Malaga to Alhambra and other historic and cultural treasures of Granada. For more than two millennia, Granada has been a mix of cultures. The Greeks, the Romans, and the Moors have left priceless monuments and signs of their rule in the city. The best-known attraction is the Alhambra fortress, which once served as a luxurious Moorish palace and was later claimed by the Christians. The Alhambra Palace is visited by thousands of people every day, so you should either book a tour of this fortress or buy the tickets in advance. Of special importance are also historic Albaicín and Sacromonte quarters, which belonged to Arabs and gypsies. Check out our day trip to Granada from Malaga or Marbella.
It is sacrilegious to stay in Malaga and not to come to Ronda for a day. The iconic Puente Nuevo bridge, hanging over a deep gorge, cannot be neglected. This is a masterpiece symbolizing the union of nature and engineering. The bridge connects two notable districts, the Moorish quarter of La Ciudad and the modern Mercadillo quarter, each of them being well worth a visit. In Ronda, you will also find winding streets, whitewashed houses, ancient ruins of the Roman period, and fine samples of Moorish architecture. The road to Ronda will take 1.5 hours of your time. Check our day trip to Ronda from malaga or Marbella
This is another place, where the Jews, the Christians, and the Arabs have all left a precious indentation on the city’s appearance, which surprisingly feels very Spanish, after all! A visit to Cordoba necessarily includes the Great Mezquita Mosque, which was turned into a cathedral with a memorable architecture and a unique bell tower. Of special interest are also the Juderia Quarter and the Roman Bridge. Cordoba is about 2 hours away from Malaga, if you travel by car.
Marbella is a seafront city where millionaires tie up their yachts and where everything looks glamorous and sophisticated. Endless shopping opportunities, amazing beaches, top-rank hotels, classy golf courses, vibrant nightlife, and orange trees in blossom – this is all about Marbella, which is a hour’s drive from Malaga. The city is widely admired due to its maze of cobblestone streets, spectacular Moorish Old Town, and colorful and fragrant Plaza de los Naranjos. Check our day trip to Marbella from Malaga.
Gibraltar rock is the view you will never forget, if you find 2 hours for this side trip. Gibraltar is the southernmost tip of this part of Europe and an overseas territory of the UK. Gibraltar is well-known for its Barbary Apes nature reserve, spectacular caves, and mouth-watering cuisine. If you walk to Europa Point Lighthouse, you will also see the coast of Africa on the horizon and the spot where the Atlantic and the Mediterranean meet. Taking a six-minute ride on the cable car, you can reach the top of Gibraltar Rock and enjoy an even more astonishing view of the surrounding landscapes. Check out our day trip to Gibraltar from Malaga or Marbella.
The town of Cadiz is old and atmospheric. If you are seeking cobblestone quarters, charming alleys, vibrant tapas bars and lively flamenco shows, you should find 3 hours for the road and relocate to Cadiz for a day. Here you can wander in the picturesque old quarter, watch the remains of the 18th-century town walls, visit the Cathedral and climb its North Tower to take pictures of the town below. In February, Cadiz becomes the scene of the best annual Carnival in Spain.
Nerja is a famous and picturesque resort town with wonderful beaches, cobblestone streets, Moorish architecture, and astounding caves, which is an hour away from Malaga. In the caves of Nerja, tourists can benefit from five kilometers of a unique underground adventure and contemplate the 42,000-year-old cave paintings of the Neanderthal period. This huge world of stalagmites and stalactites – some of them being the largest and oldest in the world – offer a splendid alternative to sun-soaked beaches or can be a great solution for a rainy day. Exploring the caves is safe, fascinating, and highly recommended to families with inquisitive kids.
Caminito del Rey
There is a place about 60 kilometers away from Malaga, which is proudly called the King’s Pathway, although the path was originally constructed for the workers of hydroelectric plants. Caminito del Rey became famous after King Alfonso XIII strolled this walkway to admire the surrounding landscapes. Many people have followed into his footsteps, many have died attempting to cover this mountainous track 100 meters above the ground. Situated among the steep cliffs of the El Chorro gorge, “El Caminito del Rey” is narrow and dangerous, indeed. Nowadays, it has been renovated and looks like a 7.7-kilometer path, made of one-meter wide wood panels with a few glass sections for better panoramic views of the canyon. It lures daredevils and thousands of tourists from everywhere in the world, who buy tickets months in advance.
The best of Andalusian traditions can be found in Torremolinos, a settlement which used to be a small and inconspicuous fishing village. Torremolinos is situated about 12 kilometers to the south of Malaga, enjoying a favorable location between the Mijas Mountains and Malaga Bay. Many tourists come here to get acquainted with the local culture and relax on the sandy beaches, El Bajondillo and La Carihuela.

Is there anything more mouth-watering than the local cuisine you have never tasted? A rich selection of local products and splendid dishes from meat, cheese, seafood, fruits and vegetables, pastry, olives, almonds, and raisins… Lucky you are, if you travel to Malaga, for it is a gastronomic paradise where you will never feel hungry! Costa Excursions has picked the best local dishes you must try.
Fried fish seems to be a part of Malaga’s beach culture. Delicious fried fish can frequently be found in seafront restaurants. Anchovies, red mullet, baby squid, and sardines are fried in white flour and served with olive oil. A finger-licking experience for both the locals and the tourists!
The list of fried seafood dishes would be incomplete without espetos, or skewered sardines that are grilledon fire in a barbecue pit on the beach. This is the reason why espetos can hardly be found in downtown restaurants. Tasting espetos is always on the shortlist of gastronomic preferences. Hot sardines are best eaten with a cool drink and your feet dipped in the yellow sand of the beach.
Initially a dish of the poor fishermen, GazpachueloMalagueño eventually became a symbol of the local cuisine. This soup is eaten warm with a toast and a boiled egg. It was first cooked in the El Palo district and contained nothing but fish, potatoes, mayonnaise, salt, and vinegar. Later, the soup got ‘richer’ as it included clams,shrimp, or langoustines.
Andalusian artichokes are not that easy to cook. They are stewed in olive oil for about an hour to get tender enough. After that, they are served with Iberian hamor foie gras in Spanish cuisine eateries, some tapas bars and restaurants.
Andalusia loves this dish! This cool salad is an ideal choice for a hot day. It is full of vitamins and normally comes seasoned with olive oil! The basic ingredients are tuna or other fish, red and green peppers, tomatoes, onions, and olives.
This typical Andalusian snack is a must-taste. The dish contains fresh prawns, paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt and olive oil. It is usually served in clay pots, accompanied by the sauce for dipping bread inside it. Pip-pil prawns are very hot and spicy due to the chili as one of the ingredients.
Malaga salad can be ordered in many restaurants and tapas bars. It contains potatoes, onions, cod, olives and an orange and is typically seasoned with olive oil. Ensalada Malagueña is a light but nutritious snack often accompanied by other heartier dishes.
Plato de los Montes de Malaga
This is a combination plate, which contains many ingredients, such as fried eggs, potatoes, peppers, pork meat wrapped in lard with pepper, chorizo and morcillasausage. From Spanish, the name of this plate is translated as “the mountainous dish”. One should keep in mind that Plato de los Montes is rather heavy and will give much energy.
Eggplant with Sugar Syrup
The south of Spain, especially the Guadalhorce Valley, is a blessed land to grow fine vegetables. Local fried eggplants served with a thick sugar cane molasses are a real delicacy! The dish may seem simple, but the trick is to cook it precisely to the point when eggplants acquire a golden hue and get crunchy.
Like gazpacho, this soup is eaten cold and is based on ripe tomatoes. It also contains white bread to become thicker and some garlic that makes it spicier. On top of this soup, there usually comes a sliced boiled egg, some ham and a tuna fish. Simple as it is, this soup is very tasty and popular with the tourists. The name is derived from Antequera, a neighboring town where you can also go, if you have a spare day.
This is a variation of white soup which was brought to Andalusia by the Moors and had been known long before gazpacho! This dish is cooked from almonds, which are ground, mixed with olive oil, and spiced with garlic. The soup is often topped with grapes.
A slice of this dessert can make your day! The cake contains almonds, apricot jam, and sweet wine which are all Andalusian specialties. It is often decorated with sweet raisins and tastes best with a cup of coffee. TartaMalagueña is served in most restaurants and cafes, so you can enjoy it anytime while relaxing from your sightseeing tour.
Wok Directo is a combination of Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. Experience new Asian flavors, choose your ingredients, your favorite sauce and the chefs will make you enjoy an authentic healthy and natural Wok right on the spot.
