  • Golf Malaga Play golf at courses such as the Alcaidesa Links course, Mijas, Dona Julia.


Fish is Malaga's speciality. No complicated presentation, just the freshest fish, simply fried or cooked on the plancha (grill). The best place to try Malaga's fish is the old fishing district of Pedregalejo/El Palo, to the east of the city. There are many simple fish restaurants along the beach, of which the best and most enjoyable is the Tintero. Waiters continually emerge from the kitchen with different types of fish and seafood, shouting like auctioneers, and you just grab what most appeals to you!


Excellent Malaga wines, and moscatel sweet wine.

  • Vino Calidad [1]

Stay safe[edit]

This is a safe city, and most people who ask for help aren't a risk — most are students of English — but avoid women giving rosemary, who will read your future and ask for fees in exchange, and mind your luggage.
