Things to do in Malaga in November 2020

Over the last few months, we have lost a bit the habit of publishing our monthly calendar of activities and things to do in Malaga, but it is time to get back to it! Because we have realized that despite the continuing insecurity due to Covid, it is also true that life goes on!

There are still flights to Malaga, we continue to rent cars at Malaga airport and there are still many activities in the province of Malaga that we can enjoy; always prevailing all the security measures of course and looking for alternatives to boost the Costa del Sol as a safe and attractive tourist destination.

One thing we like very much is the creativity of the entrepreneurs to propose to the tourists events and activities with an innovative touch combining security and entertainment, such as concerts from the balcony of hotels. Find out more in our events calendar for Malaga in November.

Black Friday Malaga 2020

The World Bargain Day this year takes place on Friday, November 29th and the following weekend, although it will most likely be quite different from how we have known it up to now.

Everything suggests that this year will be more of a “black November”, in the sense that many businesses are advancing or expanding their offerings to avoid crowds and continue to attract interested buyers. So this November, if you’re walking around downtown, go with your eyes open, because there are surely many bargains available already!

When: November 29th
Where: In shops and online shops
