Things to Do in Malaga by Oasis Backpackers Hostel

Things To Do in Malaga

Eating just-caught sardines by the sea is one of life’s great simple pleasures, and the beaches either side of Malaga are the perfect place to do it – particularly after a morning at the Picasso and Carmen Thyssen museums. Unlike some Spanish cities, it does not wind down in summer, and is particularly lively during the Malaga Fair in mid-August, when even the most reserved visitors might find themselves joining the locals for a twirl in the streets.

If you haven’t been for a while, you’ll be amazed at how it has been livened up. Chic boutiques, gastrobars and cool cafés have sprung up alongside the traditional taverns in the winding lanes in the heart of the city. Although there is plenty to see and do, Malaga is really a place to kick back and just enjoy the laidback Mediterranean vibe.

Below is guide comprised of some of our " locals only" suggestions.

 

10 Things To Do

From perfectly sunny beach weather in summer and winter (yes, about 24 degrees in the winter months) to a number of museums and other cultural happenings like the Malaga film festival, to a vivid nightlife & bar scene and some great shopping districts.

 

Restaurants

You should know how lucky you are to be dining in Malaga! The best of traditional Andalucían cuisine meets the fresh fare of the Mediterranean here in Malaga. So loosen your belt and don’t be afraid to try something new!

The restaurants in Malaga are equally as important as the beaches and just as memorable.

 

Tapas

Renowned for its tapas bars, Malaga offers visitors some of the tastiest tapas in Spain; and favourites such as boquerones, tortilla, jamon Serrano, and fresh oysters can all be found in and around the city centre. Some of the better tapas joints are hidden away in the back streets of Malaga - and they are well worth seeking out.

 

Bars Clubs and Nightlife

Literally hundreds of bars to choose from in Malaga. Many located around the city centre and the Cathedral. Rivalling any of its ’big city’ counterparts, Málaga has become one of the hippest night spots in all of Spain.

A variety of venues cater to all tastes, ranging from Spanish bars, to clubs spinning dance, techno, and house beats, with a number of hip-hop and reggae meccas and a vibrant gay scene.

People are slowly catching on to all the city has to offer after hours.

 

Flamenco and Live Music

Live music fills many of the night-time hang-outs of Malaga, and flamenco, having originated in southern Spain, is a popular standard. Though you can often trust your ears to locate a good venue, especially northwest of the Roman Theatre, we’ve got a few tips to get you started.

 

Festivals

The south of Spain is ready for a party anytime. Malaga is no exception. Year round there are a number of fantastic cultural events that bring the city to a fevered pitch in tradition, celebration and reverence. If you’re lucky enough to visit at the right time, festivals these events cannot be missed!

 

Museums

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that history and culture are a point of pride here, enthusiastically promoted in Malaga’s numerous museums and monuments. From ancient archaeological treasures, to traditional Spanish pastimes, a famous local artist and hero, to the contemporary art that still emerges from this city – you have everything at your feet.

Daytrips

Malaga enjoys a dreamy position on the Costa del Sol, located near stunning natural sites and a number of very cool, often overlooked destinations. An excursion out of the city is always a rewarding endeavour.
