When to go

Beach-bound crowds opt for the balminess of summer, but we prefer spring and autumn for a quieter break, and even winter is far from frosty (with temperatures hovering around 17°C). Go just before Lent to catch the carnival, at Easter to join the Holy Week crowds, or in mid-August to jump into the fiesta at the week-long Málaga Fair. In October, the city is scattered with exhibitions and events celebrating Picasso’s birthday.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Málaga Airport is a handy eight kilometres from the city centre, with frequent buses running between the two. Touch down there direct from most major European cities.
  • Trains

    Direct rail services run to Málaga María Zambrano station from Madrid, Seville and Córdoba.
  • Automobiles

    Driving in Málaga is a more relaxed affair than in many Spanish cities. The city’s main sights are mostly strollable, but with a rental car you’re set for both a city tour and a Costa del Sol road trip.
