City breaks in Malaga

Malaga's unfinished cathedral.


Malaga is both a gateway to Spain’s beautiful Andalucia region, and also a wonderful city break destination in its own right. Holiday here and explore the art, history, cuisine, shopping and nature that Malaga has to offer. The many facets of this friendly, laid-back city give you the opportunity to create whatever kind of break you want.

Art, history and culture on Malaga city breaks

The birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga is rightly proud of its cultural heritage. Visiting the Picasso Museum is a must on holidays in Malaga. Yet Picasso is not the only cultural attraction here. There are another 22 museums here to explore, including the Vintage Car Museum – opened in 2010.

Shopping and eating out in Malaga

The city is a fantastic place to shop, and many of our hotels in Malaga are close to Calle Larios – the main shopping area. There are also new shopping developments further from the town centre.

Malaga’s restaurants and bars offer a huge variety of cuisine and a warm-friendly welcome. Taste tapas in Malaga’s old town, Mediterranean food in La Malagueta and delicious, fresh seafood in the seaside neighbourhood of El Palo.

Mountains, gardens and beaches - Malaga's natural beauty

Overlooked by the lush Malaga Mountains National Park, this is a picturesque city. The national park is great place to come on family holidays – there’s plenty to see and do here.

Malaga’s botanical gardens are a great place to stroll through on warm, sunny afternoons and wonder at the exotic plants and trees from around the world.

Malaga is ideal for beach holidays. There are 16 different beaches, all with different personalities. Choose between the lively, urban beaches of La Malagueta, Pedregalejo and San Andres, or the secluded spots of Guadalmar or Campo de Golf
