5 good reasons to go

Enjoy the Mediterranean beaches

15 beautiful, sandy beaches run the length of this coastal city. They’re perfect for families looking to swim and sunbathe or those who want to try out a few water sports. Want to spend a relaxing evening by the sea? Head to Peñón del Cuervo beach, a bit out of the way but known for chilled-out evening events. You need to head out of Málaga a bit to find some of the more unspoiled beaches.

Being by the coast, seafood dominates the menus in Málaga. Locals love eating boquerónes(fresh anchovies) and sardines. Espeto de sardinas are popular sardine skewers cooked at small stalls over an outdoor barbecue, often on the beach. Meat and vegetable soups and stews are also on the menu.

To see / do

Culture and history

Relics of the Middle Ages

Relics of the Middle Ages

The 11th-century Alcazaba and 14th-century Gibralfaro Castle are two of the city’s main, historic attractions. Both were constructed by the occupying Arab Hammudid dynasty before being seized by the Spanish during the Reconquista. A pathway called “La Coracha” links the two sites. Today, you can walk across the fortification walls to gaze out over the magnificent view of the bay. 

La Manquita Cathedral

La Manquita Cathedral

Built on the site of a former mosque, the Catedral Basílica de la Encarnación is a Renaissance and Baroque masterpiece. The construction of the cathedral was ordered by the Catholic kings after the Reconquista. The cathedral is nicknamed “La Manquita”, meaning “The One-armed Lady”, because of its second, incomplete tower. And don’t forget to look at the cathedral’s stunning interior.

The Picasso museum

Picasso, who was born in Málaga, has his own museum in Buenavista Palace.  The city pays homage to his artistic genius in an exhibition of his paintings, sketches, engravings and more. Over 200 works of art have been donated to the museum by Picasso’s family. This collection is often enriched by some very interesting temporary exhibitions.

Outings

Around the port

Around the port

The port of Málaga has been cleverly planned to give the area plenty of appeal.  You can walk peacefully down the Paseo del Parque which runs along the harbour, pleasantly sheltered by trees. Not far away, Pier 1 gets a little lively once the sun goes down! It’s the ideal place for a drink and a spot of Spanish cuisine. 

Your taste buds will explode at the marketplace

You have to experience the buzz of Atarazanas market.  It’s the beating heart of the city and attracts visitors in search of high-quality local produce. The market sells local and regional produce so you can whisk up some of the coast’s speciality dishes. Ingredients to make sangria, mountains of olives and dried fruit will make your mouth water.

Gastronomy

Fried boquerones

Málaga is known for its boquerones, as well as its sardine skewers, of course. Boquerones Victorianos, local anchovies from the Málaga coast, come marinated in vinegar or fried. They’re sometimes served with calamari or other seafood.

Pestiños, sweet fritters with honey

Pestiños, sweet fritters with honey

If you have a sweet-tooth, you won’t be disappointed.  In Andalusia, they cook delicious Spanish biscuits and pastries. Pestiños have a way of making you happy. Pestiños are little fritters flavoured with sesame, fried in olive oil and then dipped in honey. They have a similar taste to oriental pastries.
