currently dreaming of... Málaga
One of the cutest little cities I’ve been to - it has the beach, mountains, views, ocean, town, shopping, history and most importantly unreal food. We picked Málaga, Spain as a stop on our Europe trip because we wanted a beach. We figured the destinations before would be go-go-go and we wanted to just lay on the beach and really relax. We went at the end of April so our beach options were kind of limited.
Málaga is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for it’s beaches, hiking, food and culture. It’s a super walk-able city, especially the main tourist attractions. We actually didn’t take a cab once.
Where we stayed…
We did an Airbnb, which was located in the Malagueta area right on the beach. Located at a 10-minute walking distance from the city center, which was perfect. It also helped that our host was unbelievably helpful - when we got there, he sat us down with a map and circled the must see spots, his favorite restaurants and how to get certain places. If you’d like the exact Airbnb, let me know!
