Malaga, the home town of Picasso, is known for its clear blue skies and a beach that stretches on for miles. Although the town is a perfect destination for a relaxing seaside holiday, you’ll also find plenty of culture, fantastic local food and different sporting events.
The cuisine of Malaga is clearly influenced by the proximity of the Mediterranean. The port town boasts plenty of small restaurants dotted along the pier, each serving mouth-wateringly fresh sea food and local delicacies. All lovers of fish must try espetos, sardines skewered on a stick and grilled over a roaring open fire.
For those in want of a little dose of culture, Malaga offers many museums, architectural curiosities and events. You could, for example, pay a visit to Picasso’s childhood home that has since been refurbished and converted into a museum.
You’ll also find plenty of sporting activities around Malaga. In fact, it’s a great destination for those who want to combine a relaxing beach holiday with more active elements. Costa del Sol boasts many international standard golf courses, and the countryside around Malaga is extremely well suited to cross-country cycling, trekking and even rock-climbing.
