City of Museums
Malaga is a capital of the province and the fifth city of Spain in population. It is located in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, in a privileged enclave. Its geostrategic location between the sea and mountains gives the city a unique microclimate. Malaga has an average of 2.901 hours of sunshine annually. This coupled with its mild temperatures makes Malaga’s climate ideal in winter and very pleasant in autumn and spring.
A varied offer of attractions
Malaga’s beaches are privileged to be embedded in a big city, with all the services and attractions that entails. In total, the city has 14 kilometers of beaches, perfectly connected and endowed with all kinds of high quality services. In general, the beaches are separated from the urban traffic by a network of great boardwalks that make them true havens of peace and quiet oasis.
Perceive the advantage of being able to combine in the same destination the monumental, museums, cultural or gastronomic wealth with the possibility of sunbathing or just strolling along the beaches.
We can´t forget the interior landscape, with more than 15 protected areas as a reserve site or natural monument: places that run from the depths of the Mediterranean to the high peaks, magical forests and rivers, where you can still find foxes, golden eagles and mountain goats.
Thanks to its privileged climate and weather conditions, Malaga becomes a preferred destination for going in for sport and also for organization of sporting events of the first magnitude. Whether in sport centers or in natural settings and outdoors, almost any discipline can be practiced in our city: golf, swimming, sailing, diving, windsurfing, fishing, canoeing, hiking, tennis, paddle tennis, athletics, cycling, shooting archery and horse riding.
Throughout the whole year a large number of activities, festivals and cultural events happen in Malaga. Malaga has become a true City of Museums with a total of 36, most of them concentrated in the historic center.
