If you are traveling to Malaga, Spain, in summer you will discover how the sun shines brightly and how refreshing it is a bathroom in the refreshed waters of the Mediterranean. Here you will find great beaches around the coast of the province, from the beautiful and secluded coves of the village of Maro, at the eastern end, until the beaches of Manilva, in the west end.

In the city of Malaga, the capital of the province, you can enjoy the beaches of La Malagueta and the coves of Pedregalejo or The Palo, among others, all with some “beach bar” near where you can have a drink or a dish of “pescaíto frito”.

If your visit is in the month of August, the city dresses up to feasts and the great Fair of Malaga, known as the “Fair of the South of Europe“. In this great fair you can live moments and days of revelry, songs, dances, beers, “vinitos and tapas”.

However, it is in the spring, with the Holy Week in Malaga, when the city is most famous internationally and is dressed in its finest clothes. It is then when the whole people come out to the streets to live something unique and see pass before their eyes the extraordinary images of the brotherhoods covers by their confreres in its majestic thrones, in a manifest popular fervour and in an exciting explosion of the senses. It is an unforgettable experience when we are there, listening to the sounds of the moment, the saeta and the soft step of the carriers or the strong military parade, while floods us the heady smell of the flowers and incense.

There is no doubt that it is always attractive, at any time of the year, walking the streets of the historic center, full of interesting religious and civil buildings, tree-lined avenues such as the Park and “La Alameda“. During your walk you can enjoy one of the many bars, pubs or restaurants and test the Malaga cuisine and some of the fine wines of the province. You can also spend the afternoon shopping at one of the many and varied shopping in the area.

For those who prefer the night, the youngest area is located in Puerto Marina, close to Torremolinos, about 15 kms from the city of Malaga: bars and nightclubs await in a wide and bustling area. Also in the historical center of Malaga you can find local night with much animation, as well as in the promenade City of Melilla, which reaches the emblematic “Farola”.

If you prefer going to the cinema, Malaga is one of the cities with more cinemas. There are several shopping centers, in whose interior you can find multiplexes: Plaza Mayor, on the outskirts of the city; Vialia, in the train station; the Larios cinemas, almost opposite the Vialia in the shopping center Larios.

For the most travellers, in Malaga province there are many villages that are worth visiting for its beauty, enclave or monumentality … Ronda, Antequera, in the interior, Mijas, Benalmadena, Casares, Frigiliana, which is in the interior more close to the coast; or Marbella, Estepona, Fuengirola, Nerja, on the coast, among many others most of which each one saves its peculiar charm.

Whatever each you prefer, or time of year you travel or the time you have available, a trip to Malaga always worth it.
