Tourism in Malaga
A typical evening is spent strolling through the city from one tavern to another dining on the well-known tapas - particularly enjoying the fried fish - and walking nearby the sea and beaches.
Malaga is a large city that has many places to visit (it is not a small coastal village), and it has all the comforts of a big city by the sea. There is a total of 16 beaches (with all kinds of beaches, sand, and stones) extending along the coast, of which the most famous are Malagueta, Caleta, and El Palo Pedragalejo to name just a few. All these beaches are kept carefully and are clean, and their quality is indicated by the Blue Flags of the European Union.
Due to the climate of this area, Malaga receives tourism throughout the year and maintains full services to facilitate a pleasant stay for the visitors.
It has several areas to go out at night, but the highlight is the area of El Palo, an ancient fishermen's quarter filled with terraces overlooking the sea, restaurants and local establishments where you can enjoy dinner nearby the sea.
In Malagueta the seafood restaurants and discos are filled with the more modern locals, while in Pedragalejo the younger people are found mostly in the many modern nightclubs and at live music performances.
And thats just to highlight the popular nighttime areas near the beaches. Inside the city, the nightlife is focused on certain streets where the tapas and parties are located, and it is not catering so much for tourists as it is for Malaga's own townspeople.
As for visiting the city, there are many cultural stops to make: the Picasso Museum, the Cathedral of Málaga, the Roman Theater, the solid fortified walls of La Alcazaba, and the Botanical Garden are just some of the activities that complete a visit to the beaches.
