Amazing places to visit in Malaga

Amazing places to visit in Malaga- Torcal de Antequera

1. Torcal de Antequera

One of our favourite places to visit in Malaga, the almost surreal natural landscape at El Torcal de Antequera, will leave you speechless. This UNESCO-listed natural park is renowned for its unique karst formations, making it a popular day trip option for our guests at Coeo. If you’re a nature lover, this place will be your perfect choice. Hike through its maze-like trails and encounter bizarre rock sculptures carved by the forces of nature. Discover the countless ammonite fossils spirals, a faithful testimony of prehistoric marine life, while you enjoy your walk.

The day trip we organise at Coeo includes transport from Malaga and a professional guide who will show you the marvels and geological wonders sculpted by millennia of erosion at this natural spot.

Puente nuevo de Ronda

2. Tajo de Ronda

Let’s continue exploring the impressive wonders that the nature of Malaga offers. In this case, we present another unique geological formation that has served as a background for multiple film shoots and inspiration for numerous authors. The Tajo de Ronda is a spectacular canyon upon which rises a beautiful city, Ronda, often referred to as “la ciudad soñada” (the dreamed city).

It’s undoubtedly one of the places to visit in Malaga at least once in a lifetime, offering breathtaking panoramic views from Puente Nuevo. Take a leisurely stroll through its charming streets, explore its beautiful gardens, or visit its iconic arena.


3. La Malagueta and its chiringuitos

The famous beach of La Malagueta is the closest one to the city of Malaga. A comfortable 15 minutes walking distance from our Coeo accommodations situated in the historic centre. One of the things you must do and one of the places you must visit in Malaga is the renowned “chiringuitos” along the La Malagueta beach.

Taste the fresh seafood and traditional “espetos” while soaking up the sun and enjoying the lively atmosphere. Get ready to relax on its golden sands, clear waters, and a wide range of amenities, including restaurants, bars, and water sports facilities. The perfect spot for a cool day by the sea!

4. Caminito del Rey

If you are looking for an adrenaline-pumping adventure, we recommend you to enter the Caminito del Rey, a thrilling trail suspended high above the Gaitanes Gorge. This excursion is one of the exciting day trips we organise at Coeo, allowing our guests to experience the natural richness of this land firsthand. The Caminito del Rey is one of the most fascinating places to visit in Malaga, offering a majestic blend of natural architecture and human ingenuity. Named after King Alphonse XIII, who crossed the pathway in 1921 during the inauguration of the El Chorro dam, this path was a passage for the workers who were responsible for maintaining the hydroelectric infrastructure in the area.

The Caminito del Rey is a narrow pathway suspended along the walls of a deep gorge, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. To ensure your safety and enjoyment, all parts of the itinerary are guided by a professional guide, leading you through this epic adventure from the entrance to the end of the walk. Book your day trip with Coeo and get ready to embark on a unique and unforgettable experience.

6. Gibralfaro Viewpoint

A few minutes’ walk from our aparthotels and pod hostel lies one of our favourite places to visit in Malaga: the magnificent Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro Castle. These two impressive fortresses crown the city and overlook its port. What we love most about these spots, though, are the panoramic views of Malaga – simply amazing!!

We recommend hiking up to the Gibralfaro viewpoint, taking your time and enjoying the journey, while allowing yourself to be seduced by the sights of Malaga city, and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Next to the Gibralfaro Castle, this scenic spot offers a perfect backdrop for photography enthusiasts or anyone looking to capture memorable photos. We remind you that at Coeo, we organise walking tours to the Alcazaba for our guests, in case you want to join us!

7. Frigiliana

There are many more places to visit in Malaga. Nerja, with its Balcón de Europa, its charming Carabeo street, its caves… Or the Cueva de la Pileta in Benaoján. Júzcar, the blue town. The Sierra de las Nieves, the historic centre of Marbella, etc… But at some point, we would have to end this list. And we are going to do it with Frigiliana, a really cute Malaga village that’s just bursting with beauty everywhere you look.

Frigiliana is like something straight out of a postcard, a beautiful place on a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Treat yourself to a nice stroll along its cobbled streets adorned with vibrant bougainvillaea. Pop into some local craft shops to discover Andalusian flavour, and savour traditional cuisine at its charming tavernas. You’ll love it!
