1. Historical city centre of Malaga
Stroll and visit shops, monuments or any of the museums situated in the historical district.
A breakfast or a coffee in one of the terraces is another good option and is something you can do throughout the year.
Calle Larios and Calle Granada are two of the main streets of the city centre.
2. Gibralfaro Castle and Alcazaba
Symbol of Malaga and place where you can take some of the best pictures of the city; in fact the most representative photo of Malaga where you can see the port and the Bullring of La Malagueta has been taken from this place.
Inside Alcazaba there is also a museum with remains found in the area.
3. Roman Theatre
Ideal to sit on the steps before or after visiting the Alcazaba and feel like you’re in another time.
4. Pier One (Muelle Uno): Palmeral de las Sorpresas
A good place to find restaurants and regain strength. Not far from Pier One at the Port it is located a giant Ferris wheel from which to take some spectacular pics of the city.
5. Cueva de Nerja
Nerja Caves are at some distance from Malaga city but very close to the Balcon de Europa so if you visit one of the two, you can visit the other at one go.
If you go during the summer it is a good idea to plan the day in Nerja and enjoy some of its beaches.
6. Torcal and Dolmens of Antequera
If you are in the area you cannot miss the opportunity to discover the Archaeological compound Dolmens of Antequera built approximately during the Neolitic and the Copper Age; you can also visit the Wolf Park, a guided tour in a natural park in Andalusia to watch the wolves and take pretty pictures.
7. Gaitanes Gorge and Caminito del Rey
If you decide to visit Ronda (you should not miss it), along the way you will pass by the Gaitanes Gorge.
To visit the Caminito del Rey you need to have a reservation.
If you decide to spend the day in the area you can eat in the restaurant El Mirador de Ardales, in El Kiosko or in the Bar La Cantina. From there you have access to fantastic hiking trails, one of them after a tunnel that crosses the mountain.
Do not forget your camera or you’ll regret it.
Very recommended visit if you like good food and situated midway of El Chorro and Ronda.
9. New Bridge in Ronda
Take the opportunity to stroll through the city, walk the streets and have a coffee in the square.
If you have time you can visit the Museo del Bandolero (Bandit Museum map).
10. Puerto Banus
