Malaga City Breaks
Down on the Costa del Sol, Malaga offers relaxing Mediterranean vibes but with the cultural activities that can only be found in a big city. Whilst you can choose to fill your time with lazy beach days, they can also be spent perusing Picassos or browsing boutiques.
One of the most interesting areas to explore is the recently regenerated port, now boasting the eye-catching Pompidou Centre and a swathe of bars and restaurants serving freshly caught fish dishes.
