This year the long-awaited Easter holidays take place from 28 March to 5 April. Easter is one of the most eagerly awaited dates of the year, as for many people it means finale a holiday after a long winter, especially in the northern hemisphere.
If you are one of those people who dream of returning to Malaga during these dates, but you haven’t decided yet because of the current situation, we want to encourage you with this post.
Everything you need to know to fly to Malaga
We tell you everything you need to know to fly to Malaga and it is not as complicated as it seems, I myself flew just 10 days ago to Munich and back. In this article you will find all the relevant first-hand information and all the essential requirements, so that you can enjoy flying to Malaga in times of Covid from the very beginning, without fear.
Increase in searches for flights to Malaga
Incidentally, according to the new report produced by Costa del Sol Tourism, searches for flights from Germany to the Airport Malaga-Costa del Sol during the week of 25 February to 4 March have increased by almost 20 percent compared to the previous week. A clear indicator that there is no lack of desire to come!
Present situation in Malaga
Since this Friday it is now possible for non-essential shops and bars to open their doors until 10.30 pm.
The curfew remains in place between 10 pm and 6 am and gatherings may not exceed six people except for cohabitants, with the exception of wakes and funerals.
The weather in Malaga at Easter
As I write this article, we have an average high of 20 degrees Celsius at midday. The mornings and evenings are cool and require a jacket. Everything is full of flowers; the delicious scent of orange blossom is already in the air. When you are on approach to Malaga Airport, you can see green fields and mountains from above after the winter rains.
However, it is also possible that there will be showers at Easter, as these dates in early April can still bring unsettled weather. You are well advised to bring a rain jacket and a thicker jumper just in case, but also short sleeved shirts because the sun is already shining brightly.
If the weather is good, you’ll see many locals enjoying the beach to build up their tans, although you won’t see as many people swimming because the sea is usually quite cold with an average temperature of 15/16ºC. However, I’ve already been in the water a few times myself, a short dip makes you feel like a new-born and also boosts your immune system!
