Playa de La Malagueta
This artificial beach is a loved place by many locals and tourists. Perfect to run or bike on the boardwalk and to grab some beers in one of the many chiringuitos on this beach.
Playa Peñón del Cuervo
Located at the east end of the bay of Malaga. It’s a good place to do some barbecue and the beach is not as crowded as other places.
Taberna del Siglo
This is one of my absolute favorite places. It’s a small restaurant in the heart of the city centre. Due to its location around a corner, you have the perfect place to see what’s going on. Usually I go there for drinking a white Sangria and observe all the walking peoples. It’s just great fun! And if I get hungry, I order some Chicken Nuggets (Lagrimatas de Pollo) which are just delicious.
It’s definitely my favorite tapas restaurant. I was here with all my friends and family who visited me and everybody just loved it! You can choose from a wide variety of Bocadillos (small bred with different topics) and other tapas. Usually I order Solomillo de Cerdo, Black Angus and Tapa de Pollo. I just love it!
The Alcazaba has the most beautiful views and sometimes really relaxing to walk around in. For students it is very cheap (only € 0.60) and on Sundays free after 16.00h.
Plaza de la Merced
For me this plaza is what Spain is about. It is the 'plazalife' what Spain used to be famous for. People love to meet each other here or sit on the benches and you always see children playing on this plaza. I like to buy myself an ice-cream at the best ice-cream shop in Calle Granada and eat it up here at Plaza de la Merced.
The new port area offers just everything! There are many very good restaurants where you can get dinner from around the world; Italian or Japanese, Mexican or Indian... After eating you can also do some shopping here in the port. Moreover the whole port area invites you to take a walk and just have a look at the yachts and people from around the globe. To walk to the cruise terminal is very nice after all the shopping and eating. Enjoy the maritime port atmosphere!
Estadio La Rosaleda
For those who like football visiting the local stadium is always one of the first things to do in a city. La Rosaleda is some walking minutes from the center. There is a shop for Malaga CF fan stuff. If you get the chance: Go there for a match and feel Malaga's passion for football!
El Tintero (Restaurant)
El Tintero – This is Malaga! You can't order anything from the menu, except drinks! Just point (shout) at the waiter, when he passes by with a plate and grab it. (Avenida Salvador Allende 350)
Atarazanas market (and other markets) – can't get any fresher or better food! (Calle de las Atarazanas 19)
