The Telegraph once published a great article about the secret pleasures of Malaga, Spain. To read the article click here.
The author, Nigel Tisdall highlights the city’s attractions, culture and history, and we wonder why we have never spent much time there before. The majority of Brits who arrive in Malaga will go straight on to another destination without seeing much of the city and what it has to offer.
Malaga is very well-connected with public transport, and an ideal place to go for the whole family. This cultural city is the last part of the South Coast that is still totally Spanish, and although you won’t see very many English, the locals are friendly, and you will find an amazing choice of traditional Spanish pleasures such as food & drink, art, culture, and so much more.
For anyone who would like to explore the welcoming city of Malaga, but would still like to enjoy the beaches, water parks and more relaxed atmosphere while on holiday, we would recommend self catering in places like Torremolinos, Benalmadena, or Fuengirola, then you can visit Malaga when you like. These are all very popular holiday destinations, cheaper accommodation, and easy to get to and from Malaga by train.
Here are a couple of holiday rental properties available in Fuengirola and Benalmadena.
