As the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, Malaga's museums, art galleries and theatres also offer a taste of the city's vibrant art culture.

If you have already purchased your flight and you’re only looking for a hotel, you can find it here.

What to see in Malaga

Before we get into the specifics of flights to the Costa del Sol or how to get from Malaga Airport to Marbella, we need a daily itinerary. The best way to devise a travel plan is to think about what there is to see in Malaga in 1 day. Breaking things down on a daily basis ensures you get to see as much of the area as possible during your trip. With this in mind, here’s what to see in Malaga on a 3-day trip.

Day 1: relax and recharge after your flight to Malaga

You’ve found the perfect flights to the Costa del Sol and landed at Malaga (AGP) Airport. You’ve looked at where to stay in Malaga and found Salles Hotel Malaga Centro. Everything is set for a short but fun-filled break. It's going to be enjoyable but, at times, full-on. Therefore, it makes sense to take advantage of Marbella's beaches on your first day.

This gives you a chance to unwind after your flight and charge up ready for a few days of exploring. Malaga Airport, often also called Pablo Ruiz Picasso International Airport, is the nearest airport to Marbella. A car journey takes around 40 minutes. Here's how to get from Malaga Airport to Marbella (or from your hotel to Marbella):

Leave Malaga (AGP) Airport via the MA-20 and head towards Torremolinos. Continue until you join the AP-7 into Marbella. That route can get busy at peak times, so you might want to use the N340 toll road.

There's also a shuttle bus that is available from Malaga to Costa del Sol locations, including Marbella. From Malaga Airport, head to the bus terminal and take the bus to Marbella bus station. The trip takes around 35 minutes and costs approximately €8. Or, if you're leaving from your hotel, there's a good chance you can hop on the bus from a stop close by.

A trip to Marbella gives you access to the famous Golden Mile in Puerto Banús. There you can relax on the sandy beaches, sample some seaside cocktails and enjoy a local dish or two before heading back to your hotel, relaxed and ready for day 2.

Day 2: have your fill of fun and food

The second day in Malaga should be when you hit your stride. You’ve chilled out on Marbella's seafront and had a good night’s sleep, so you should be ready to cram in at least two or three tourist attractions. There are plenty of things to do so here's a list of Malaga’s best attractions:

Any of those attractions will give you a taste of Malaga. Once you’ve had your fill, you can refuel at one of the city’s best nightspots. Whether you're in the mood for tapas and drinks, dinner with live music and a stunning view of Parque de Malaga, or somewhere for a good serving of patatas bravas and other regional favourites, you will be spoilt for choice as excellent food and drink is flowing from almost every corner.

Day 3: see the city from above

Alcazaba should be your final port of call. The Alcazaba of Malaga is situated on the slopes of Gibralfaro Mountain. It’s an ancient fortification that provides a glimpse into the city’s past, including the time it was part of the Muslim-ruled Al-Andalus empire.

Once you’ve wandered around the ruins, head down to the beach and El Tintero. Here, waiters leave the kitchen with different dishes. They call out what’s available and you have to beckon them over if you want it. This combination of fresh seafood and theatre is the perfect way to end your final day in Malaga.

In order to discover the beautiful landscapes of the surroundings, you can always rent a car in Malaga and travel the open road.
