MEET US IN MALAGA
Last week saw us take our OtterBoxInsiders on the trip of a lifetime to the stunning mecca that is Malaga for #OtterBoxOoO.
To celebrate we have rounded up our favourite hotspots in Malaga! Perfect for anyone considering a fun weekend break or a week long trip to the Costa del Sol!
The Malaga area is one of the foodie hotspots of southern Spain’s Andalusia region; being the second-most mountainous area in the country, it has the perfect climate for all kinds of produce (including molasses, olive oil and goat’s cheese). Sardines, anchovies and shellfish are also staple foods of Andalusian cuisine.
We’ve hand-picked our favourite restuarants to help you make the most of time in Malaga!

With its coastal location, Malaga’s nightlife offers some of the most scenic and charming bars in the country. Ranging from modern clubs to rustic old bars, there’s few things the Andalusian city doesn’t have. Reasonable prices, high quality drinks and a fun crowd are only a few reasons to check out its bar scene.

There are markets and flea markets all over the Costa Del Sol every day of the week. They can be good fun if you are here on holiday with all the usual latest crazes for kids and adults. They generally all sell the same stuff, but if you go to a market where there are more locals, you may find some gems!

Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the world with close to 3000 years of history. It is also a main transit point for tourists arriving in the Costa del Sol, Malaga is still a very Spanish, traditional city, with a lot to offer. Here is a selection of the top sights that are worth seeing in Malaga.

The Hammam, or public bath, was one of the main hubs of social activity in the Islamic world. Although the idea of bathing came from an act of religious purification, it was also a place where people could come to meet friends, rest or relax. In Medieval Spain there were a lot of these baths; and the Hammam Al Andalus as well as others in Málaga tries to recreate a bit of that history.
