The birthplace of Picasso, Malaga, Spain is the largest city on the Costa del Sol. Malaga is known for its laid-back atmosphere, amazing food, and pristine beaches. Book your flight to Malaga with Blue Air and explore the city’s ancient ruins.
Tour Alcazaba and explore the beautiful gardens of this eleventh century Moorish castle. If you climb past the ramparts, you'll see breathtaking city views. Then, go down the hill to the Roman Theater and walk in the footsteps of the Romans. Afterward, hike up the next hill and visit Castillo de Gibralfaro, another Moorish castle. You can rest in its ornate gardens while enjoying the view.
Stroll beside the sea and browse the shops at the Port Area (Muelle Uno). For a rejuvenating break, find an Andalusian bar or restaurant overlooking the harbor. You can people-watch over a glass of Sweet Malaga wine as you share some tapas with a friend or splurge on jamon — aged ham from acorn-fed pork. It's like prosciutto but considered better.
If you like rock climbing, pack your carabiners and go to the El Chorro Gorge. It's less than 50 minutes outside Malaga. You can also hike the El Caminito del Rey, a walkway suspended from the gorge's walls.
