Malaga: summer vibes and Spanish style

I had always wanted to visit the south of Spain and I wasn’t disappointed! Everything about Malaga and Andalucía is simply beautiful and worth visiting again and again…

Where we stayed and how the typical vacation days went by

Upon arrival at the airport you already get the first great impression of this city! I feel generally comfortable at small and cute but also at huge airports, and the one in Malaga is really nice organized, so you won’t feel lost, despite its size. The transportation to the city is also regulated perfectly with modern a/c trains and the ride cost like nothing!

Once we arrived at the central station it was a quick walk to our hotel. I really loved it there! The rooms are big, modern and beautifully decorated. Everybody was so nice and helpful!  The hotel is located very close to the city center. You cross a small bridge and you find yourself in front of the Mercado Central de Atarazanas. I love the markets in Spain! They are so colorful and you can find the most delicious things – fresh fruit and juices, jamon, all kinds of seafood (for those who likes such things) and many more. It’s the perfect place for foodies!

Every day we took a different small street through the city to get to the beach. And with cold cups of fresh juice in our hands we explored Malaga and its sights.

The way to the Malagueta Beach passes through the tropical Malaga Park. It was so nice to take a cool walk under the palm trees and listen to all the cute parrots sing.

Sometimes past beach time we also walked by the Malaga Port of Muelle Uno. It’s a great place to shop, have an iced coffee or some tapas.

The Alcazaba

Like most Andalusian cities, Malaga too has an Arabic palace – the Alcazaba. I was truly fascinated by the architecture and the magic of this place! I felt like a character from a 1001 nights fairytale! And the view over the Port of Malaga and the open sea with all the ships is breathtaking.
