Malaga Province

The province of Malaga is located in southern Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalucia, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea. Its coastline is commonly referred to as the Costa del Sol, and also the Costa del Golf.

Extending along 161 kilometres of coastline, the environment encompasses mountainous regions, coastline and farmland. The backdrop of most of the coastline has majestic mountains, which pin the towns and cities to the waters edge. Inland there are numerous traditional white washed villages. The city of Malaga splits the east and west coastline of the province.

To the east you will find Nerja (50km from Málaga); Torrox (46km); Vélez- Málaga (35km) and Rincón de la Victoria (12km). To the west there is Torremolinos (15km from Málaga); Benalmádena (22km); Fuengirola (27km); Mijas (31km); Marbella (58km) and Estepona (85km).

The region all the way from Rincon de la Victoria to Estepona is considered the Málaga metropolitan area and has a population of over one million. The coastline is completely connected by the N340 coastal road, which itself offers some beautiful sea views, to the west there is a toll road (A7) which gives a speedy connection from Fuengirola all the way to Algeciras in the province of Cadiz.

There is an abundance of things to do in the province of Málaga from historical sightseeing to playing golf on the provinces many, and often world-class golf courses.

You can take a closer look at specific towns and cities of Málaga from the tourist information about Spain on www.spain-holiday.com

History
Malaga is rich with history dating back to 800bc and has over the centuries been marked by the Greeks, Romans and Arab Maurer. In recent years the province has expanded rapidly and is now a melting pot of nationalities with many foreigners residing in around the city on the famous Costa del Sol coastline.

Beaches
The beaches of Malaga and the Costa del Sol are one of its most valuable assets; you can find many different beautiful options, ranging from the busy, vibrant beaches with bars, restaurants and water sport activities, to the quiet isolated small coves, where your only company can be the soothing lap of the surf.

Transport
Malaga airport is the forth busiest in Spain and has many daily international connections to the rest of the world.

The port in Malaga is a stop off point for many cruises and has been in continuous operation at least since 600 BC.

The Province is well serviced by road and rail networks, there is a high-speed train which significantly reduces travel time to Madrid, and a local train line which serves from the centre of the city of Malaga to the coastal town of Fuengirola.

Cuisine
The local cuisine from the province of Malaga is mainly a healthy Mediterranean one, with lots of seafood and shellfish, olive oil, fruit and vegetables, all jostling for top spot on local menus.

Probably the most popular dish on a typical menu from the province of Malaga will be Pescadito Frito Malagueño or Fritura Malagueña, a platter of small, locally caught fried fish; Gazpacho, meat stews, tapas and roasted meats are also popular, but the cuisine differs from region to region, with inland dishes being stand-alone compared to the coastal dishes.

Climate
Malaga enjoys a subtropical-Mediterranean climate and an average of three hundred days of sunshine. Its location on the Mediterranean sea means the coastline benefits from cooling sea breezes during the summer months making the heat manageable.

The province also boasts Spain’s warmest summers, along with Almeria and Alicante, with an average temperature from December to February reaching above 17 ºC. During the hottest month of August the temperature ranges between 29 ºC and 35 ºC.

Fuengirola review

The locals were very nice and welcoming and there are some great restaurants - try Roma for Italian as their pizzas are amazing and The Brittania pub does great food and super music. It was really handy having a lot of eating houses and pubs all together within a few streets. On the downside, Fuengirola is a bit tired and in need of a revamp. In places the pavements could do with being resurfaced, although they were cleaned regularly. The "lookie, lookie" people were annoying, frequently hassling you to buy their goods, although they did accept a firm No and moved on. Weather was brilliant, even in early May.

Fuengirola review

Torreblanca has everything you would want from a short break or a longer holiday. Variety of restaurants, shops, great beach, lots of sunshine.... So easy to travel to - a mere 30 minutes on the train from Malaga airport. Surrounding area offering great choice of activities for both couples and families. We will definitely be going back. Soon!!
