Malaga Fair from August 13 to 20
The Malaga Fair is one of the most lively and popular fairs in Spain and attracts each year a large number of local and foreign visitors who enjoy lots of music, dancing and the typical Cartojal wine – well chilled to combat the high temperatures. The fair takes place during the day in the streets of the historic centre and then moves at night to the fairgrounds where people keep celebrating until dawn.
Fireworks at midnight of August 12th mark the beginning of the Malaga Fair which during the day is celebrated in the historic centre and in the evening and night at the fairgrounds Cortijo de Torres. The fairgrounds are also the stage of the traditional horse exhibitions. Continue reading
During the summer days you can observe in Malaga a phenomenon that is always repeated at the same time.
A small “tsunami” suddenly invades the beaches of Malaga and catches by surprise those bathers unaware of this phenomenon who are lying at first beach line just a few meters from the sea.
What is this strange phenomenon that has drenched more than one and has occasionally taken mobile devices and other prized possessions?
For this summer 2016 is expected an increase of 15% of flights at Malaga airport compared to last year’s peak season. That is, there are expected a couple of fairly busy months in these facilities on the Costa del Sol which are the main gateway for all tourists visiting Andalusia.
If you plan to take a flight to Malaga during the high season, you have good weather guaranteed with long sunny days and clear skies to enjoy a perfect day on the beach.
Many of us are looking forward to the imminent opening of the rehabilitated Caminito del Rey / Kings walkway, one of the most spectacular landscapes of Malaga and probably Spain.
If your last visit to Malaga city dates from 5 years ago, you are in for a surprise. If it dates from 10 years ago or longer, it will even be a big surprise. A psalm of hammering, drilling and painting has been heard for years, and Malaga arose like a whole new city.
Do you remember the time, when you arrived at a small airport? Driving into Malaga was a chaotic affair? The whole of the Costa del Sol was touristy, except for Malaga city?
While it inevitably becomes cooler in central and northern Europe, the Costa del Sol in southern Spain still is enjoying a warm climate – and plenty of peace after the bustling months of July and August. September and October are in Malaga and the Costa del Sol ideal months for those seeking relaxation and sun. The bathing season runs at the sun-drenched coast even well into autumn.
Depending on the location of our hotel or apartment, public service may be close or not. For example if we choose a hotel in Marbella or a relaxing stay in any of the many interior white villages, getting to the city centre may be quite difficult and could take a few hours. If we choose car hire Malaga, the distances whilst moving through the province are a lot shorter and much more comfort than using two buses; and not to mention, cheaper than using a daily taxi.
