Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in El Palo, Spain your home away from home

El Palo is a former fishing village and district of Malaga which is now very popular with visiting families, couples and students. The town has a truly international flavour due to the many language schools in the area. El Palo holiday rentals enjoy a pleasant horseshoe-shaped beach of fine sand, plenty of shops and a choice of local tapas bars for evening entertainment nearby.

Things to Do in El Palo, Andalusia

El Palo and the neighbouring community of Padregalejo are best known for pole fishing, known as the Kings of Sports. The soft sandy beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, boating, windsurfing, parasailing and other watersports. After dark El Palo buzzes with nightlife as visitors enjoy beer and wine in the tapas bars and partying in the nightclubs. Golfers will enjoy a round at the nearby par-72 Royal Malaga Golf Club. It was the first golf club to be built in the Costa del Sol, back in 1925. Sample the local food and wine in the area and look out for local festivals during the summer. The parades, music, food and flamenco dancing make these cultural festivals most entertaining to join in. Shopping in Malaga, boat trips, scuba diving and hiking on the nearby mountain trails offer something for everyone from their El Palo holiday homes.

Breath of fresh air

5 of 5
The accomodation was basic but everything we needed.The surroundings were fantastic an oasis in amongst urbanisation we had 3000 sq metres of garden and orchard to ourselves also full use of the terrace for the main house.It was great to have this area of peace and quiet but only a 15min bus ride to Malaga centro.We were met by Jean Marc brother Michel a really interesting character ordained minister and published author he could not have been more helpful and also a mind of local history.I would definitely stay here again

Lovely apartment

4 of 5
The apartment was clean and well stocked with all the essentials. It's location was brilliant, a few minutes walk to the beach, supermarkets and good restaurants. We loved the old part of Malaga city, especially the culture with the Picasso centre and the Glass Museum, where we were shown around by the owner Gonzalo, who was highly entertaining and knowledgeable. Would definite recommend the apartment.
