The capital of Andalucía, Málaga is a vibrant regional hub for culture, nightlife and shopping. The centre of Málaga is a wonderful labyrinth of streets and alleyways offering shops, accommodation and entertainment. The birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Málaga is rich in arts and culture with numerous museums, including the Picasso Museum and the Centre Pompidou.

The newly re-developed Málaga Marina area features the Málaga Big Wheel, as well as some excellent dining opportunities, including a Michelin accredited restaurant. Cruise ships dock close to the heart of the city whilst the city is fringed on one side by the beaches of the Mediteranaen and on the other, the foothills that eventually lead to the towering peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

MÁLAGA CITY

The city of Málaga stretches east to west along a strip of land between the coastal mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. Around the geographic centre of Málaga is the port area and just inland, the ancient centre. With a population of around 570 000, the city offers a great mix of amenities, yet retains a size that makes navigation easy and the visitor experience intimate. Málaga (and the region) is served by the 3rd busiest airport in Spain with excellent connections to many European hubs.

A coastal city, Málaga really enjoys the best of both worlds, with the historic centre and city beaches just a short walk apart. Locals flock to the beach throughout the year and there are a number of bars and restaurants offering outside grills. The promenade which lines the beach is an active area with joggers, skaters and bikers sharing the route with those strolling along the coast. A few minutes’ walk inland from the marina and the historic city of Málaga awaits with ancient ruins, Málaga cathedral and wonderful, narrow streets.

MÁLAGA DINING

Málaga is a true gastronomic experience with local’s tapas restaurants and seriously good, high-end restaurants dotting the city. A coastal city, Málaga has fantastic seafood and visitors will be hard pressed to find an English Breakfast anywhere. International chains are almost entirely absent from the streets and the food is dominated by southern Spanish influences.

One of the best establishments in Málaga is the Restaurante Jose Carlos Garcia. It is a Michelin starred restaurant located in the port, close to the Pompidou Centre. The restaurant interior is remarkably stylish whilst the food is truly exquisite. In the city centre, Tapas rules with some fantastic and authentic Tapas restaurants serving excellent dishes and Spanish wines.

MÁLAGA NIGHTLIFE

With a strong Spanish identity, Málaga offers a vibrant choice of after dark entertainment. The historic centre of Málaga has endless bars, cafés and restaurants which spill out onto the streets. With such a strong local presence in the bars and night spots, prices are generally pretty reasonable.

Roof-top bars can be found across the city and on the coast. As well as offering cool, fresh-air venues, the views across the city skyline or out onto the ocean can be something truly special. Rhythms drift out into the Málaga air until dawn when the hard-core head for a doughnut and dipping chocolate breakfast before bed.

MÁLAGA MEETINGS & SEMINARS

As the regional capital of Andalucía and with the third busiest airport in Spain just a few minutes’ drive from the city, Málaga is heavily promoted as a meetings & seminar / conference destination. There are a wide range of private venues with everything from downtown locations, to hillside venues offering stunning vistas. Some of the venues offer activities such as cooking and wine tasting and are within easy reach of Málaga centre and its hotels.

Málaga also has a dedicated conference and exhibition centre with a variety of room / hall configurations, offering space for several thousand people. The spaces are modular and modern and there are professional catering and media services offered on-site. The conference centre is located close to the highway to the west of the city and is ideally located for the airport and nearby resorts, useful when additional bed capacities are required.

MÁLAGA - THE UNMISSABLE

The waterfront in the port of Málaga is a fantastic area with seriously good dining, bar terraces and museums. Private yachts and cruise ships moor in this area and there is a great deal going on.

Restaurante Jose Carlos Garcia offers a Michelin starred dining experience directly opposite the moored yachts in the marina. The décor, service and food are exceptional.

Just down the quayside is the Centre Pompidou Málaga with a superb exterior of coloured glass and some fantastic modern art exhibits in its halls.
