Holidays in Malaga

Visit the historical heart of the Costa del Sol on holidays in Malaga. Relax along its sandy beaches, explore its remarkable architecture and visit its quirky museums. As long as you leave time to taste some of Spain’s most traditional cuisine and distinctive local sweet wines for good measure.

In the day, wander around the old ruins of the Roman Amphitheatre and stop for refreshments at the little chinitas. Shop along the Calle Lario then take a taxi ride to Pedregalejo and sample fried fish and barbecued sardines, cooked in old wooden boats. Then spend the evening watching Flamenco or taking in an Andalusian horse show. Choose from our fantastic range of hotels in Malaga. Hire a car and head down the coast to Marbella, or follow the coast further to see the old world charm of Estepona. Malaga really is the gateway to the Costa del Sol.
