Malaga, a famous resort with European travellers, is a port town on Spain’s distinguished Costa del Sol. With cheap flights, massive amounts of entertainment and beautiful, luxury holiday villas, Malaga has become a genuine favourite holiday destination.
The Costa del Sol boasts one of the highest concentrations of golf courses in the world, earning the region the tongue in cheek title of the ‘Costa del Golf’. There are golf courses to suit all ages, abilities and budgets, all open to the public to play.
Due to the low cost of flights to Malaga, family holidays have become a particular favourite, and there is plenty to entertain every member of even the most diverse family staying in a Malaga holiday accommodation. There are a range of theme parks from water parks to safari parks, offering go karting, beautiful public gardens and crocodile parks.
Eating out from a Malaga villa creates a world of options. There are a huge number of world class restaurants to be found serving the best of both Spanish and international cuisine. Tapas is a particular delicacy in the restaurants of Malaga, and be sure to try the local wines which have made Malaga famous. The nightlife here is fantastic too. holiday rental accommodation in Malaga is perfectly situated to enjoy the bars and clubs around ’24 hour square’, but the evening entertainment does start much later than it does in Britain, so the extra flexibility provided by renting a private holiday rental in Malaga is a real bonus.
There is also a huge amount of culture here too. As the birthplace of Picasso, Malaga is home to the Picasso Museum, and his birth house can still be seen. The most prominent building here is the dramatic Cathedral, which can be toured, and the impressive Castle of Alcazaba should not be missed when renting a Malaga villa or apartment.
All this and I have failed to mention the beaches of the Costa del Sol! Taking Malaga holiday accommodation will certainly mean you experience the beautiful sandy beaches which stretch into the distance, and the excellent array of water sports available from the promenades which back them.
Within a very short distance of Malaga lies the village of Alhaurin de la Torre, nestled amongst avocado and citrus groves. While it is a historic town, many of the sites have disappeared with development, but there is still a great laid back atmosphere, and the beautiful gardens of El Retiro, which draw many people to the area.
Malaga has a magnificent Mediterranean climate, meaning that Malaga villas are constantly in high demand. The annual average temperature is 22°C, which only drops to 18°C during the winter, meaning the golf courses, entertainment and restaurants still draw a crowd in December and January. Summer temperatures can soar into the mid 30’s (°C).
Malaga Airport (AGP) is 8km southwest of Malaga town centre. Malaga has gained in notoriety due to the proximity of the airport and the vast number of cheap flights to Malaga Airport which arrive daily from the vast majority of British Airports.
