Malaga in detail

While Málaga calls itself the ‘Capital of the Costa del Sol',  it is very untypical of the holiday region it serves, and for better or for worse, it has absorbed very little of the Costa holiday culture. Day trippers from the Costa resorts are a familiar sight but local food and language are the norm, and Málaga remains a very Spanish city.

There is little to see on arrival by cruise ship (apart from the Gibralfaro Castle on high) and first impressions are not promising, with building projects everywhere. But the old centre also features many handsome streets and plazas, and several historic landmarks. An increasing number of high quality ‘Spanish-cosmopolitan' restaurants, cafes and bars makes eating and drinking here a pleasure.
