Malaga Has Sol

Malaga, which lies on the Mediterranean's Costa del Sol, is a fabulous holiday destination. Come for the sun (sol) or for the local festivals.


Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Malaga is from April to October. July and August can be very hot and beaches can become overcrowded. The weather in December and January can sometimes be unpredictable. Visit the city on 6th January for the procession of the Three Holy Kings. Or spend Easter in Malaga to see the Holy Week processions. In the second half of August enjoy the Feria de Malaga, fireworks and a party that lasts for nine days.


Before You Travel to Malaga

Before visiting Malaga, be sure to book your hire car well in advance and be advised that parking spaces can be hard to find in central Malaga. It may be useful to know some Spanish, however, many of the locals do speak English. When eating out, look for the Menu del Dia, a cheap three-course meal offered at midday in many restaurants, which can come as cheap as €6. The locals tend to enjoy a siesta from 2 pm until 5 pm, so many of the shops will tend to shut down. Restaurant and grocery prices are usually around 50 percent cheaper in Malaga than they are in London. The time in Malaga is one hour plus that of London.
