You can visit the city of Málaga as well as a handful of breathtaking villages, all situated along the Mediterranean coast. The cliffs of Maro mark the beginning of the Costa del Sol, and the Punta Chullera forms the final boundary. Along this diverse expanse of coastline you can find soaring cliffs, brackish estuaries, sculpted dunes, and quietly rolling beaches.
In ancient times, this region was a huge player in Spanish foreign policy and the expansive mercantile system that spider webbed across the globe. The tourism industry began picking up its pace in the early 1900’s, stilted only by the Spanish Civil War in the 1930’s. It was not until the 1960’s that the region gained its famous identity as an unmissable destination.
One of the most highly anticipated treats in the area is the range of fantastic seafood. Fresh, lightly seasoned fish is a regional specialty. Be sure to stop into a Chiringuitos to pick up some of the local fare, whether churros or a refreshing cup of gazpacho is calling your name.
Aside from the food you should most certainly spend some time in Málaga, a cultural hotspot.
As a highly developed region, there are countless options for getting around. Riding a bike is a great way to get short distances, and the busses are sure to get you to anywhere you crave that’s farther out of town.
