Planning a Trip
Malaga City is not to be confused with Malaga Province, however, you can’t experience one without the other, and many who visit Malaga (the city) enjoy excursions to villages outside the city.
Malaga is the gateway to the Costa del Sol, and being right on the coast it has culture, history, nightlife and all the relaxed atmosphere of a beach town. Whether you come as a culture vulture, a sun worshipper, a party animal, car enthusiast, or hiking fanatic you will find it all here in Malaga.
Best Time To Visit Malaga
Malaga enjoys the typical Mediterranean weather with fairly hot summers and mild dry winters. You are practically guaranteed of 320 days of sunshine every year.
In summer, temperatures can reach as much as 30°C (86°F) so you need only the coolest of clothing, however, something a little warmer for the cooler evenings. In winter temperatures drop to around 16°C (60°+F) so not cold, but cool although nights can be much colder.
The Malagueños (locals) are warm and friendly and really do not take themselves too seriously. Food is number 1 to the malagueños so you are likely to meet them in the many pubs, tapas bars and restaurants.
