Málaga city and Málaga province offer the perfect refuge to lose yourself for a few days and disconnect from the daily grind. Whether you’re a city lover or someone who prefers to discover hidden corners, or lose themselves in the beauty of nature, on the Costa del Sol you will find the perfect place for that much needed break. These are just some ideas for an unforgettable weekend getaway.
A romantic break on the Costa del Sol
For an unforgettable weekend away with your partner, what better than a trip to one of the most romantic corners of Málaga province: Ronda. From its Tajo gorge you can gaze out onto one of the most spectacular and romantic views imaginable. Let yourselves fall in love with the old town centre, enjoy sharing some local wines from the Serranía de Ronda, and, for the perfect end to a perfect day, stay the night in one of the many charming hotels.
Antequera is another very special destination for couples to enjoy. It is the very heart of Andalusia and brings together a unique monumental heritage. Spend a truly magical weekend discovering the legend of the Peña de los Enamorados (lovers rock), losing yourself in the neolithic Dolmens, visiting the many churches and end the day watching a beautiful sunset in Torcal.
Nerja is another stunning location for enjoying a romantic break. Everyone who visits this typical Andalusian village is seduced by the extraordinary light, white houses and rugged cliffs. Just 10 minutes away, high up in the hills above Nerja, is Frigiliana, considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
Shopping, restaurants, cultural activities, nightlife etc. If you’re looking for a cosmopolitan city and a packed program of events, Málaga capital is the place to go. It is the perfect city for enjoying a cultural getaway, visiting museums, going shopping and sampling its many culinary delights. The dynamic old town is bursting with life.
Marbella is another thriving and bustling city. Luxury and gastronomy go hand in hand, as Marbella boasts the largest concentration of Michelin Star restaurants on the Costa del Sol.
The interior of Málaga province hides some real gems. One of these is the Caminito del Rey, running between the municipalities of Álora, Ardales and Antequera. Clinging to the sheer rock walls of the impressive Los Gaitanes gorge, it’s a must for those who want to spend their break discovering spectacular areas of natural beauty.
The heights of Axarquía are another ideal setting and not known by many. Alfarnate, home to Andalusia's oldest inn; Comares, at an altitude of 700 metres and popularly known as the 'Balcony of the Costa del Sol'; or La Viñuela with a magnificent landscape surrounding its reservoir, are just some of the recommended stops for your Axarquía getaway.
