Whilst it’s almost impossible to pick just five things to do in Malaga we’ve asked our travel experts how they’d spend their time in and around this wonderful Spanish city and here’s their pick of the best things to see and do.
Take a wine and tapas tour
To indulge in an authentic Spanish dining experience spend half a day Spanish wine and tapas tasting where you will learn about the regions white, rosé, red and dessert wines and taste some of the best gourmet tapas. In the evening head to Mijas to enjoy an evening of local tapas in the heart of rural Spain. City Discovery organise tours which include everything from a pick-up service to entrance to the Wine Museum. For more information visit: www.city-discovery.com/malaga/tour.php?id=5742
Take a hike in the Spanish mountains
La Maroma is the name of the highest mountain peak in the Sierra Tejeda range, at the edge of the Malaga-Granada border. The area is a mountain nature reserve and is home to numerous species of rare birds including eagles, mountain goats and the Iberian Lynx. Discover gorges, waterfalls and pre-historic caves in this hiker’s paradise. Visit the tourist office in Canillas de Aceituno for information and maps and plan a trek to the summit of La Maroma (2,100m), which takes around seven hours from here. For the less fit but fearless try your hand at paragliding to fully appreciate a real birds-eye view.
See Picasso’s finest works in his homeland
Malaga is the birthplace of Picasso and a trip here wouldn’t be complete without appreciating his contribution to art. The Museo Picasso Malaga opened in 2003 and includes no less than 285 works which have been donated by the Picasso family.
See the city by bike
The beauty of cycling through a city is the hidden backstreets you discover that most visitors never get to see.
