Top 7 travel tips in Malaga province1. Explore Malaga's Old Town
The Greeks, Romans and the Arab Maurer all called Malaga home at some stage in its history, so the city is a real melting pot. The Old Town is well worth checking out but this area is actually car-free so needs to be explored on foot.2. Visit the Picasso Museum
Malaga is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and the prolific artist has his own museum in the city. Picasso created over 16,000 paintings and drawings during his life and the museum is where guests will see some of the best of them. Malaga actually has about 40 museums within the city, so even though rainy days are rare, there is plenty to do on the odd day when the weather is bad.3. Take in a round of world-class golf
Andalusia has some of the world's finest golf courses, so fans of the sport who stay in luxury villas in Malaga province should definitely take time to play a round or two. Spanish star Jose Maria Canizares, who played in the Ryder Cup four times, has designed the course at the Anoreta Golf Resort, providing an unforgettable experience.4. Splash the cash at Puerto Banus
Marbella is famous for its rich visitors, and the boutiques of Puerto Banus offer an outstanding range of shopping options. Head down to the marina to check out the incredible yachts and keep your eyes peeled for Porsches, Ferraris and other supercars on the roads.5. Try the local wines
Malaga province has hundreds of brands of its own wine, even though sherry remains the most popular alcoholic drink among many of the locals.

Visit Castillo de Colomares
The world's largest monument to explorer Christopher Columbus can be found close to Benalmedena and is a must-visit spot for those staying in luxury villas in Malaga province.

Day trip to a White Village of Andalusia
One of the things this Spanish region is most famous for is White Villages - Pueblos Blancos in the local tongue - many of which are only a short trip from the city of Malaga. One of the most beautiful is Iznajar, which has superb views down a valley to a lake.
