Málaga is one of the most beautiful provinces in Andalusia and one of the most popular places in Spain. The cities in Málaga receive more than 10 million tourists every year, who come to the Costa del Sol to soak up the sun and enjoy the beach, as well as for the wide range of cultural, culinary and entertainment options. Traveling to the south is a safe bet and our cheap hotels in Málaga are your best option.
A visit to the city of Málaga will amaze you from the very start. The restored Andalusian city is listed as a Historic Cultural Heritage Site, thanks to the impressive mix of cultures that it boasts.
Several of the most historic and famous places to visit are located in the vicinity of the Gibralfaro, a small mountain that’s 130 meters high. It is home to the Gibralfaro castle, a majestic fortified enclosure of Phoenician origin, with the Roman theater of Málaga at the bottom, which is the main Roman structure in the city, as well as the Alcazaba, the most famous monument in the city. The Alcazaba of Málaga is a fortification built by the Muslims at the beginning of the 11th century, which is currently one of the most important defensive buildings in Spain in a good state of preservation.
Apart from the Gibralfaro and its surroundings, visiting Malaga is a good opportunity to learn more about Pablo Picasso. The painter has one of his most important museums in the city where he was born. It’s no surprise that it’s the most visited museum in all of Andalusia.
After visiting museums and historical fortifications, we can make the most of the day strolling through the always busy and fun Calle Larios, and go for a swim at the Malagueta beach, where we can try a delicious skewer of sardines. Before returning to our cozy hotel at the best price, we can stroll through the cathedral area or enjoy the always-entertaining Málaga nightlife.
Apart from visiting the city, the Costa del Sol offers a multitude of recommended and diverse destinations near Málaga. Most trips are only a few kilometers away, so you can book your hotel in Malaga and go back and forth in the same day.
One of the most impressive excursions is El Caminito del Rey. An impressive route along cliffs and gorges, not suitable for people with vertigo. It is essential to buy the ticket in advance.
Nerja is a more laid-back visit, a town famous for its beaches and caves, and above all, for being the place where the famous Spanish series Verano Azul was filmed.
A little further away is Ronda, an inland municipality located at an altitude of over 700 metres above sea level. Ronda is famous for its historical and natural wealth, since it is located in a prime place for fauna and flora.
But if what you are looking for is breathtaking beauty, you can’t miss the city of Antequera. Located in the north of the province, Antequera is a delight for the senses, since every corner means discovering new facets of the culture and provides you with the opportunity to take a unique photo.
For those looking for another type of tourism, Málaga is home to the historic city of Marbella and the luxurious marina of Puerto Banús. Marbella is one of the cities with the highest purchasing power in Spain and is a safe bet when it comes to entertainment, gastronomy or shopping.
And finally, almost bordering Cádiz, is the wonderful Estepona. A city that combines a classic Andalusian-style old town, with its white houses and narrow streets, with the best of a city by the sea. The promenade, adorned with hundreds of palm trees and brimming with life, is one of the most beautiful in Spain. To visit Estepona, another great option is to stay at our cheap hotel in Jerez de la Frontera, just an hour and a half away by car. 1
