My Top Favorite Choices While In Malaga

Welcome to Malaga and the capital of the Costa del Sol, a magnificent Andalusian city located in southern Spain surrounded by the mountains of Malaga, the beautiful Mediterranean, stunningly warm to moderate climate along with a myriad of cultural interests.
From its stunning Moorish fortress – the best-preserved of its kind in Spain to its Roman amphitheater in the center, this vibrant and exciting city is full of architectural masterpieces to explore and admire along with a multitude of very good restaurants, art and eclectic type museums, great shopping and much more. There is so much to do in Malaga as you will see by my recommended list below. The apartment is within a 5-10 walk everywhere.

Traditional Malaguena Local Tapas

Gambas Pil Pil

prawns cooked in spicy chili and garlic oil, served with fresh bread or baguette. If you taste them once, you will find yourself asking for them in each restaurant. The quality can vary a lot!

Sardines on a Skewer

– a local classic especially for the area of Malaga, these are sardines cooked over a fire just outside the restaurant.


in all shapes and varieties, Spanish people are obsessed about their Jamon. It’s usually served on a piece of bread or as a sharing platter

Patatas Bravas

my choice of tapas usually, these fried potatoes are served with a spicy sauce with distinct flavor
