Malaga: More than you imagine

Malaga: More than you imagine

Don Shearer (Travelbiz) spent two days in magical Malaga recently. This Andalucían gem has so much to offer. We started with lunch in the bustling Old Quarter, the historical centre of the city, where the streets wind in all directions from the majestic Cathedral. The selection of bars and restaurants offering pinchos and tapas was endless, with cheerful staff recommending specials of the day. We followed lunch with a tour of the historical sites, which include the Teatro Romano and the Alcazaba De Málaga.


We then walked through the park to the ultra modern Marina, which offers shopping and dining experiences, as all as all things aquatic. The big surprise was the wonderful sandy beach nearby where we had a cool drink at one of the many beach bars, and the local speciality; sardines cooked on open fires in specially rigged boats. To top it all off, a birds-eye view of the city from the Mirador Princes Ferris Wheel was a must. Our advice: wander around the Old Quarter, enjoy some tapas and a speciality gin, take in the historical sites, shop ‘til you drop, and then relax on the beach. Magical Malaga: where ancient meets modern.
