Leisurely comfort in glittering southern Spain
BEST TIME TO VISIT
If your party loves to chase the summer, visit in July or August where you’ll experience daily highs of around 31°C. Although the sun can get quite hot, fresh breezes coming in from the cool Mediterranean Sea ensure you never forget how close you are to a refreshing dip in the water. Remember to pack appropriate sun protection while out and about, as UV levels can be high this time of year.
If you’re visiting outside the peak summer months you can still generally be assured of relatively warm days ideal for sightseeing. Many festivals take place in the off-peak tourist seasons. Among other notable events, the family friendly Carnival is held over 10 days in February and the Malaga Film Festival takes place each March.
Activities & Experiences
A true seaside resort town, there’s no shortage of activities for those yacht chartering in Malaga. We recommend balancing your days between sightseeing expeditions and lazy summer days filled with relaxing beaches and fine dining. Get some ideas for your upcoming tour with these must-do activities:
Explore historical monuments
With over 2,000 years of rich history, Malaga is replete with significant historic landmarks. Visit La Alcazaba, a Moorish fortress monument constructed in the 8th century. The inner citadel of the building contains the opulent palace grounds and three peaceful courtyard gardens. The outer citadel contains iconic Moorish gardens complete with fountains and elaborate gateways. Just a stone's throw away you’ll find a relatively well preserved Roman theatre, which was used as a quarry during the Moorish period. Discovered in 1951, some of the spectator seating is in such good condition that it's easy to imagine the site's former splendour.
Visit unique museums
The Museo del Vidrio is a quirky museum located in a tastefully furnished house constructed in the 1700’s. Visitors can expect to find a lovely collection of antique glassware, with some items being many thousands of years old. Civilisations such as Phoenicians, Romans, Ancient Greeks and Egyptians are all represented. Don’t miss the stunning 17th century objects from the Dutch Golden Age. For something a little different, visit the Automobile and Fashion Museum. 100 classic cars from as early as 1903 are on display here, as well as 200 pieces of couture clothing dated mainly between the roaring 20s and the 1950s.
Relax on the beach
When visiting Malaga, there is no shortage of world class beaches to enjoy. Among the most popular is La Malagueta. Conveniently located on the town waterfront, La Malagueta has sandy beaches and lively energy, attracting many tourists in the warmer months. At more than a kilometre long, there’s plenty of room for everyone on this picturesque stretch of sand. A short sail away is the locals favourite, Torremolinos. Lined with restaurants, a walkable promenade and various water activities, this is our recommendation for a family friendly excursion without the crowds.
