Guess what? Málaga is also named and spelled Malaga - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Málaga (Malaga), Andalusia, Spain, is a well-known tourist destination in the south of Spain. It is the capital of the Province of Málaga in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia (in Spanish, "Andalucia"). Around five hundred seventy thousand people call this city by the sea their home. The sunny and warm climate attracts numerous tourists from abroad and other Spanish regions. Nevertheless, Málaga is not only beach and sun. The city centre might not be as pretty as other cities in Andalusia, but there are several worth-seeing cultural sights such as Centre Pompidou and the castle Castillo de Gibralfaro on the city hill. In summer, it can get very hot. Temperatures over forty degrees Celsius are possible. However, the mean maximum temperatures range from twenty-eight to thirty-two degrees Celsius. During the very mild winters, temperatures between seventeen and nineteen degrees Celsius are very common.

Málaga is a very popular with tourists and has numerous flight connections with airports all over Europe. Therefore, the supply of accommodations of any kind is very good. As a budget tourist, you can choose from several hostels in Málaga (Malaga), Andalusia, Spain; many holiday apartments; and cheaper bed and breakfast places. Most Málaga (Malaga), Andalusia, Spain hostels are situated in the city centre or close by. Even if Málaga has many options to stay, especially in the holiday period, the Málaga (Malaga), Andalusia, Spain hostels of good quality are booked out quickly. Planning and booking ahead can be very useful.

The city is located on the Costa del Sol (in English, "Coast of the Sun"). Málaga enjoys about three hundred days of sunshine annually. Thanks to the dry and sunny weather, hanging out on the beach can be pleasant, even in November. It is recommendable to hire a car to explore some of the beach towns along the coast. Nerja with the scenic beaches, lovely cliffs, and the iconic viewing platform “Balcón de Europa” is especially very recommendable. Inside the city, you can visit the ruins of the Roman theatre, which dates from the first century BC. The palatial fortification Alcazaba is hard to miss, since it is located on the city hill. It is the best-preserved citadel in Spain.

Connected to Alcazaba is the Castle of Gibralfaro. It was built in the fourteenth century to support the defense of Alcazaba. Several museums such such as the famous Centre Pompidou, Museo de Málaga, and Museo Picasso Málaga wait for tourists who are interested in culture and art. If you want to go out at night, there are countless pubs, restaurants, and nightclubs in the city centre. At weekends, the small square “Plaza del Marqués del Vado del Maestre” is full of people -- locals and tourists alike -- enjoying their drinks and having a chat. Keep in mind that the locals go out comparatively late and many bars fill up after midnight.
