There are lots of Malaga hotels to choose from in the Old Town and the good thing about staying here is that you're not too far away from the seafront promenade.

Los Montes District

For a quieter more relaxing holiday chose a hotel in the Los Montes district. It boasts fantastic views of Malaga's Old Town across the bay. Los Montes is a very traditional part of the city with many traditional style taverns and restaurants serving traditional dishes and local wines.

Malaga's Beaches

La Malagueta is the nearest beach to the city centre and is popular with locals and tourists alike. You may find it hard to believe, but this is an artificial beach with its sand imported directly from the Sahara!

The beachside promenade is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants and dotted with hotels. A great place to stay if you want easy access to the beach.

Malaga is a great place to base yourself on the Coasta Del Sol. From here, you can drive to the nearby resorts of Torremolinos and Fuengirola. Torremolinos is just 12km south of Malaga, Marbella 60km while Fuengirola is about 25km.

Hotel accommodation in Malaga is plentiful with hotels to suits all budgets weather you're looking for cheap hotels in Malaga or luxury Malaga hotels. If you're on a budget then choose 1 or 2 star hotels which offer self catering guestrooms. The busiest time of the year in Malaga is Easter (Semana Santa religious celebrations) and the summer season from June-September. If you avoid these times then you should be able to find cheaper hotel prices. Another way to get a good deal on hotels in Malaga is to book early. Sometimes if you book a hotel up to 3 months in advance you can make genuine savings.

Travel to Nerja and Costa del Sol
Nerja is a beautiful resort known for its seashore and hardly 40 mins of drive from the Malaga international airport and is located at the eastern side of Spain's Costa del Sol. What makes this place one of the most beautiful tourist spots in the world is the fact that once a small fishing village this place has still maintained its Spanish flavor and also developed in an extremely controlled manner. It means that though the development has taken place but yet the property development has been low rise which gives it an ancient and rich look.
 
Also, you don’t have to worry about the weather at Nerja ever since you have over 300 days of sunshine every year which means that you can pack your bags and come here the moment you get a chance. It also gives you a chance to take a peep into the local fishing industry as you overlook the sea which a lot of other western resorts of Malaga don’t. Wandering through its beautiful streets and markets is an experience one can cherish for a long period of time.
 
What makes spending your vacations in Nerja is the fact that it is very tourist friendly. They have several tourist information offices set up at various spots in the city like the one located near Balcon de Europa. Balcon de Europa is known for its breath taking view of the Nerja coastline stretching in both directions. The view of the Sierra de Almijara Mountains is also one that will stay with you till the end of time.
