Malaga and the Costa del Sol

Located on the Costa del Sol, visitors to Malaga can enjoy all the sun, sand and fun of a regular beach holiday, but can also explore this ancient and fascinating port city. Wander around the narrow streets and see cathedrals, castles and enjoy some delicious tapas, to enjoy the other side of this pretty area.


When to travel

April to October is considered the best time to go to Malaga, but July and August can be hot and the beaches are often very busy. The weather in December and January can be colder as well as wet, so these are not popular months for travel. Malaga celebrates Easter with the Holy Week Processions and on 6th January the Procession of the Three Holy Kings. In the second half of August Feria de Malaga takes place with fireworks and a huge party lasting nine days.
