"MALAGA." Málaga by Regina1965

Málaga Travel Guide: 927 reviews and 2,483 photos


While staying in Torremolinos we went by bus to Malaga, which is only 14 kilometres away. We were staying there in May and it was 34 degrees C when we visited Malaga, so it was a wonderful day. I got surprised seeing this statue of the famous Danish author Hans Christian Andersen in Malaga, but he visited here in 1862.

Now these photos were taken in 2007 when I first went to Malaga, in 2009 I visited Malaga many many times so my tips are from 2009-2011, when I stayed for 6 months and again for 4 months in Torremolinos, visiting Malaga frequently. But I am going to keep my Introduction page as it was when I first visited as this is one of the first pages I added here on VT :D


Beautiful Malaga, a lot of palmtrees - love palmtrees :) This photo is taken in the beautiful subtropical Paseo del Parque in the center of Malaga by the harbour. (See my tip)


These buildings were incredibly close to one another. They are close to Malagueta beach (see my tip on that).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Parts of Malaga are so beautiful, the tropical forest in particular.
  • Cons:A lot of drug addicts.

    Parque de Malaga and Jardin de Concepcion sounds to be lovely places to visit in Malaga. And the view from Gibralfaro looks great. I wish I could get some of the heat of Malaga coming this way, now!

    Although I have been to Andalucia for a few days, I never really visited Malaga. - Lovely page with brilliant photos here. Interesting to see a statue of the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen in the city.

      Thank you, Dee :) These photos were taken over a period of several years - it was almost always sunny when I visited Malaga.

    Wow! Another beautiful Spanish town! What a breathtaking lookout. I love the views of the garden and the bull ring from here. It sounds and looks like a great town to pay a visit to.

      Yes, it is an interesting city, the capital city of the south. I went there so many times during my stay in Torremolinos.

    Hi Regina, Dee (balhannah) recommended your pages to me and I can see from the first one I have visited, that I am going to enjoy them. Your photography is stunning. I started with Malaga because I saw your photo with the Hans Christian Andersen statue and I am always attracted to contemporary street art. A really lovely page ReginA, Thank you.

    Hi Regina, I really enjoyed your Malaga page. All those green parks and palm trees look so beautiful! This is a city I really would like to visit :-)

    It’s amazing that La Malagueta beach is man-made with sand from the Sahara! I had to laugh when I read your description of the prominent citizens of Malaga in earlier times walking under the palm trees with their top hats, and among them Pablo Picasso with a dead rat hanging from his watch-chain.


“Bon Voyage :)”
