Why you should go to Malaga

Whether you’re looking to enjoy a trip to the city of Malaga itself or you’re holidaying in the nearby resorts such as Estepona or Marbella, Liverpool to Malaga cheap flights are the ideal starting point. The Costa del Sol is one of the most popular regions of Spain for tourists searching for some sunshine. Marbella is perfect for those looking for some glitz and glamour, while Fuengirola is a lively resort with amazing beaches and a picturesque historic area hidden away if you’re after some peace and tranquillity. Nerja, meanwhile, is the jewel of the Costa. It’s quintessentially Spanish, with a great nightlife.

Malaga itself is a superb destination if you want to mix a city break with culture and marine life. The historic centre of Malaga reaches down to the harbour on one side, and is surrounded by mountains on the other. If you’re a lover of art, stop by the Museo Picasso Málaga, while if you’re a history buff, make sure you visit the courtyards and fountains of the 11th century Alcazaba.

When to go to Malaga

The Costa del Sol’s popularity has a lot to do with its amazing climate and gorgeous sunshine. It’s a stunning destination all year round, but the majority of visitors tend to fly over during the summer months when the weather is at its warmest. If you’re looking to make the most of the Costa del Sol’s golf courses, the best time to visit will be in spring or autumn. Meanwhile, winter time in this region of Spain is definitely not what we’re used to in the UK; expect clear blue skies and moderate temperatures.
