Malaga city

Summer is the best time to organize a trip to Malaga and the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun), Spain. It is the best season for its beaches, the sun, the beer and the terraces and, most of all, by the refreshment stands, known there as “chiringuitos”. We can walk down the promenade with the towel in the shoulder, or we can settle in the sand and, after resting for a while under the sun, sitting at a table of the beach bar to have a cold beer and fried fish or “pescaito frito”.

The Malaga Airport Pablo Ruiz Picasso is located close to Torremolinos, just 10 kilometers from the capital of the Costa del Sol. Today is one of the most important in Spain, with almost 13 million passengers per annum in the year 2011. European cities better connected by plane with Malaga are London, Manchester, Dublin, Brussels and Paris. In terms of the national transport, the most commonly used are the flights from Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Melilla.

Once you arrive at Malaga airport, the connections are quite simple. Apart from the train, which has a stop just across the street and whose line is Malaga and Fuengirola, there is a line of buses that will take you to Marbella in one direction and to Malaga city on the other. If you choose to rent a car, very close to the airport is the N-340, which is the road that connects with the highway in Malaga to Cadiz.

Once in the city of Malaga, dont forget to visit the impressive fortress known as “La Alcazaba“, the beautiful Cathedral, popularly known as “la Manquita“, and the Gibralfaro Castle. You can also enjoy the wonderful beaches in Torremolinos, Marbella or Nerja, among others, and learn about charming towns with Andalusian tradition, such as Mijas, round or Antequera, three of the most beautiful villages of the province.
