Things to do in Malaga
When it comes to Malaga tourism, its unbelievable beaches are without a doubt the number one attraction. Choose to stay at IBEROSTAR Costa del Sol, one of the best Estepona hotels, and you will understand why one should go to Malaga to enjoy some of the most outstanding beaches in the Costa del Sol. There are the amazing, small, quiet beaches of La Rada and Del Cristo in Estepona, or however, if you choose our hotel in Torrox, you will find worthy alternatives in the Calaceite, Vílchez, Mazagarrobo and Playa Ferrara beaches.
In turn, in Marbella you can also find some of the best beaches in Spain suitable for everyone such as the beaches called Bounty, Nikki Beach, Río Real, Real de Zaragoza, Nueva Andalucía, Alicate, Cabopino, Nagüeles, La Fontanilla, and Playa Hermosa so it’s not going to be easy to choose.
If you visit the city of Malaga, the capital of the province, you still will be able to relax on the beach. La Malagueta, Palo and La Misericordia are the three city beaches turning the city into one of the best holiday destinations in Spain for families. But beside beach time the provincial capital also offers the chance to enjoy an astonishing panoramic view from the viewpoint at the top of Gibralfaro hill or get to explore the legendary Passage “Chinitas”; built on the territory of an old convent, it is mentioned in the works of Federico García Lorca.
Moreover, despite being best known for having some of the best beaches in Spain, the Costa del Sol is also an ideal place for hiking, thanks to the Baetic Mountains and the Montes de Málaga Natural Park.
The Province of Malaga is home to more than half of all the golf courses in Andalusia; therefore, the Costa del Sol is also an excellent destination for fans of the sport. In fact, the best golf courses in Andalusia can all be found in Marbella, Estepona and the surrounding areas.
Finally, if you are on holiday in the Costa del Sol in August, we encourage you to experience the Feria de Málaga, an event offering concerts, fireworks, flamenco shows, processions and a wide range of other activities. Similarly, “Dia de las Migas” in December, is one of the most deep-rooted festivities in Torrox. And, of course, what Spanish festivity is complete without some incredible tapas? In the Costa del Sol, you can try many typical tapas from the Malaga region.
