Just 20 minutes away from the city center on foot, you can reach the Playa de la Malagueta. If you want a break from the city, we suggest you go to La Carihuela. Less than an hour away by car you find this former fishing village to spend a relaxing day at the beach.
If you are into diving and snorkelling, you will be busy exploring several amazing beaches. Cala del Cañuelo in Nerja is one of the best. There is an amazing combination of plants and animals, even the endangered “one coral” can be found in this dreamy location. Punta de Calaburras in Mijas is also a magnificent beach to explore underwater. It is full of impressive rock formations and posidonia oceanica, an endemic underwater plant.
Jamón, olives, olive oil… You will truly enjoy the local eating traditions. Tapas will make you fall in love with Spanish cuisine.
This area has delicious fruit and vegetables, as well as a big culinary tradition of fishing dishes. One of the most simple yet delicious specialities are ‘espetos’, the name for fresh sardines stuck in a stick and grilled. Pescaíto is another fishing delicacy, made of fried and crispy small fish. Other famous and delicious delicacies in the local tradition are ajoblanco, gazpachuelo and zurrapa.
Going to tapas bars is really ingrained in the local culture.
One of the most populars is El Pimpi. Its surroundings are outstanding and the tapas are delicious. It is a frequently visited place by locals.
Another one worth visiting is El Tapeo de Cervantes. It is one that receives outstanding opinions. Its specialities include cheese, croquetas and toasts.
We complete the list of recommended tapas bars with Bar la Campana. It is a very crowded place since they offer delicious local food at a reasonable price. Some of their most delicious dishes are fried fish and rice.
Culture and sightseeing

The city itself is an open air museum with Spanish, Roman and Moorish influences. It has several famous museums such as the Pompidou Center of Málaga and the Picasso Museum. It is also worth visiting Alcazaba, a well-preserved fortification that offers magical sunsets and the Roman amphitheatre. The old town is very charming due to his clobbed streets
