- Waarom Málaga?
Málaga stad is geografisch gezien hét middelpunt van de Costa del Sol. Deze kosmopolitische stad grenst aan het strand en ligt slechts op 10 minuten rijden van het vliegveld. Deze veelzijdige stad heeft voor ieder wat wils. Van charmante straatjes met gezellige terrassen tot aan de moderne boulevard aan de haven. Of u nu een dag aan het strand wilt liggen of juist van de diverse musea wilt genieten, het kan hier allemaal!
There is a lot to see and do in this beautiful old town. What not to miss? The Picasso Museum Málaga. This museum is located in the Palacio Buenavista a stone’s throw from the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, one of Spain’s most famous painters. Here you will find a collection of paintings, sculptures and sketches. In addition to Picasso’s work, the building, a Moorish palace, is an attraction worth seeing. In the basement of the museum you can find some archaeological finds.
The Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress, is located on a hill in the center of Malaga. You can see many Arabic but also Roman influences in it. In front of the Alcazaba is an amphitheater, the Teatro Romano. At the top of the hill you will find the ruins of the Castillio de Gibralfaro. The walk there can be tough, so we advise you not to go in the middle of the day. Once you are at the top, you will not be disappointed by the fantastic view. From here you can see the harbor, the arena and the old town.
In Málaga stad zijn diverse fietstochten te boeken. Dit is een echte aanrader! U komt op deze manier heel veel te weten over de boeiende stad.
3. Culinary delights
Een restaurant vinden in Málaga stad is niet moeilijk. Op bijna iedere hoek van de straat zit wel een eetgelegenheid. De keuze kan soms erg overweldigend zijn, daarom delen wij graag enkele favorieten van ons met u!
Taberna Uvedoble is one of them. This restaurant has a lot of space inside, but outside there are only a few tables. Therefore, you will not see many tourists here. The dishes can be ordered in half or whole portions, which makes it ideal to share. Not necessarily the authentic Spanish cuisine but the modern with not everyday combinations you can taste here. The swordfish ceviche with avocado from the Axarquía is definitely worth a try!
Good food and a nice view? Restaurante Amador is the place to be. It offers a great view over the city, especially when the sun sets, you can see the beautifully lit city. Here you can eat à la carte or order a degustation menu from the chef. This half Spanish half Dutch chef has followed cooking studies in several countries. You will certainly taste this in the dishes! The wine list is not very extensive, but certainly not less tasty.
For the real wine lover Los Patios de Beatas is a must. Whether by glass or bottle, there is plenty to choose from. Besides tapas they also serve various meat and fish dishes. Be sure to follow the suggestions of the waiters. They will not disappoint you.
This vibrant city has everything. Sun, sea, beach, culture, history, good food, nightlife and so on. Young and old will enjoy themselves here and you will certainly not get bored here. Many parts of the city can be visited on foot. But also public transport is good here. The city has several parks where you can walk or enjoy the tranquility.
Not only on weekends but also during the week there is plenty to do in Málaga when it comes to going out. Everywhere in the center there are nice cafes or clubs. Plaza de la Merced is a square with many terraces. Young and old sit here together.
Mañana Cocktail Bar serves not only great cocktails but also a wide choice of specialty beers. You can sit inside the bar as well as outside on the terrace.
La Bodega Antigua Casa de Guardia is also worth a visit. This is the oldest bar in Málaga. You can have a glass of Málaga Dulce, sweet wine from Málaga, at the bar. The wines come directly from the barrel. The bodega itself is located in the Montes de Málaga Natural Park. This can also be visited of course.
In the center there are also several rooftop bars. Hotel Soho Bahía has a panoramic view of the city and the sea. It has a classic bar with several lounge sofas and cozy seating areas.
Most clubs don’t open until around 02:00 and don’t close until the early hours.
Shop till you drop. Dat geldt zeker voor Málaga stad. U kunt hier naar hartenlust winkelen in één van de vele straten. De bekendste is wel Calle Marqués de Larios. In deze hoofdstraat vindt u over het algemeen alle gerenommeerde winkelketens. Deze straat is rond kerst feestelijk verlicht en hier kunt u iedere avond een spetterende show meemaken.
In the small streets you will find nice boutiques, bookstores, vintage and souvenir stores.
El Corte Inglés is one of the shopping centers in Malaga. A supermarket, clothing department, media, decoration, accessories, there is plenty to find here.
Mercado Atarazanas is a covered market where you can enjoy and taste local, fresh products such as fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and herbs. This location was formerly used to repair boats and ships. Atarazanas is Moorish for shipyard.
Around the market there are several tapas bars for a snack and a drink.
This market is open from Monday to Saturday from 08.00-14.00 hrs.
7. Sports & Leisure
Costa del Sol wordt ook wel Costa del Golf genoemd. Dit omdat er hier meer dan 40 golfbanen te vinden zijn. Vanuit Málaga stad staat u op zeer korte tijd op één van deze banen.
Because this city is located by the sea, you can practice one of the many water sports. How about kitesurfing or SUP (Stand up Paddle)? A complete workout for the whole body.
Is this a bit too active for you? Then we would like to recommend Hammam Al Andalus. Experience a water trip in the Arab baths, drink tea on one of the seats, enjoy a traditional Kessa massage and relax completely. It is a real stimulation for your senses with special mood lighting and Arabic elements.
8. Beaches & Beach Clubs
Málaga has several beaches. Pedregalejo is one of them. This former fishing village is located just outside the center. It has a quiet and rural character. You will find here all kinds of chiringuitos and beach bars.
Restaurante Rompeolas is a cozy family restaurant on the beach. Fish is of course the specialty here. A beautiful view, a portion of Cazón and adobo, boquerones, and a glass of tinto de verano, that’s all you need!
One of the most famous chiringuitos is El Tintero. Here you can eat delicious paella and different kinds of fish. Ordering is done here in a very special way. Waiters walk around with different plates of food. They call out what is on the plates. As soon as you raise a hand they put down a plate. This way you can also taste dishes that you have never eaten before. The bill depends on the number and type of plates (oval or round).
For the really hip Beach clubs we advise you to go to Marbella.
