Life is made of moments, of experiences that may turn it into something wonderful. If you like travelling, discovering new things, and meeting new people, come and live the best experiences in Malaga with Coeo. You’ll repeat!
For this city is full of history, art, culture, gastronomy, leisure, emotions and many opportunities to enjoy life to the fullest. Will you join us to discover some of the essential experiences in Malaga?
Stroll through the historic centre
Malaga’s historic centre is a fantastic labyrinth of narrow streets, charming squares, historic buildings and cosy cafés. Calle Larios, the city’s most famous street, is perfect for shopping or souvenir hunting. The Malaga Cathedral, asymmetrically unfinished, is a stunning example of Spanish Renaissance architecture and also a must-see.
Enjoy the amazing views from the Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro castle
Another of the best experiences in Malaga takes us back in time. The Alcazaba, an ancient Moorish fortress, and the Gibralfaro Castle offer breathtaking views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea. Explore the interesting architecture, exuberant gardens and stunning sights as you immerse yourself in Malaga’s rich history.
Step back in time at the Roman Theatre
Continuing with antiquity, we go back even further to marvel at Malaga’s impressive Roman Theatre. Located in the historic centre of the city, just below the Alcazaba hill, this is the most important Roman vestige preserved in the city. Worth a visit!
Tour the city’s museums
Malaga is the birthplace of one of the most famous artists in the world, Pablo Picasso. Without a doubt, one of the must-see experiences in Malaga is to visit its museums. Immerse yourself in Picasso’s creative genius at the Picasso Museum. Or let yourself be seduced by the Thyssen art pieces. If you like contemporary art, you must go to the CAC Malaga and to the Pompidou Centre. And if you fancy discovering more about the current art of urban artists, come to Coeo Pod Hostel and have a look at our permanent and monthly exhibitions of urban artists. You’ll love it!
Relax on the beach while tasting the famous espetos
Malaga boasts stunning beaches, and who dares to miss enjoying a bit of sun and sand? Malagueta Beach, quite close to our Coeo accommodations, has a nice palm-lined promenade perfect for a sunset stroll. Spend a relaxing afternoon swimming, sunbathing or tasting the typical espetos (grilled sardines) by the shore.
Treat yourself with Andalusian cuisine and tapas
Gastronomy is another essential experience in Malaga. This city is, without a doubt, a paradise for foodies. Try traditional dishes such as pescaíto frito (assorted fried fish), salmorejo (cold tomato soup), or gazpacho (another refreshing Andalusian soup) at local restaurants and beachside chiringuitos. Treat yourself to a tapas tour with our Coeo local community to some of the best bars in the centre. And if you feel like it, accompany your meal with a glass of sweet Malaga wine, or a good Victoria beer, both a real treat.
Enjoy Malaga’s vibrant nightlife
When the sun goes down, Malaga comes alive with vibrant nightlife. The city offers a fun mix of beachfront bars, chiringuitos and nightclubs where you’ll have a great time. Or if you prefer, you can enjoy the night in the city centre, where you’ll find traditional Spanish taverns, trendy pubs and cocktail bars to unwind and have fun. Also, you can have a drink at the bar of our Pod Hostel, where you’ll find a cool atmosphere and people from everywhere in the world eager to share new experiences with other travellers like you!
Enjoy the Feria de Agosto and the Semana Santa
Although in both cases, the influx of tourists is quite significant, it is true that these two events (the August fair and the Easter week) are two of the experiences in Malaga that you should enjoy at least once in your life. If you like this city and you have the possibility to come here frequently, try to align your trip with one of these celebrations, you will love it! Of course, book well in advance…
