Guide to Malaga in The Sunday Times Travel Magazine

We’re thrilled to announce that Guide to Malaga is mentioned in the latest edition of The Sunday Times Travel Magazine.

Note that the information in this post refers to the early days of Guide to Malaga when it started life as a mobile phone app. Nowadays, all the app information is on the website, but we’re still very proud of this mention!

And best of all, not only do we get a mention but almost all the venues recommended in the article also form part of our guide. Great minds definitely think alike!

The May edition of this well-known travel magazine includes Malaga in the Instant Escapes section. Written by assistant editor Liz Edwards and titled ‘Mellow Malaga’, the 2-page spread offers the best of the city for a more relaxed break.

None of your rushing round the sights before you’re whisked off to another holiday destination on your itinerary. Nope, this article about Malaga focuses on taking in the best of Malaga in a leisurely way, preferably enjoying the sunshine and delicious food as you go.

Things to do highlights in Mellow Malaga and Guide to Malaga

Liz leads her article stating that “As sunny city breaks go, Malaga hits the sweet spot.” She then takes you on a potted guide tour of Malaga, starting at the ferris wheel before moving on to Soho street art and the CAC before eventually ending up at Muelle Uno and the lighthouse. She also recommends the Concepción Botanical Gardens, the Pompidou Centre, rooftop terraces and the Hammam, possibly the mellowest activity of all!

As Liz says, Malaga offers “plenty  to fill a few days, but not so much you’ll feel guilty for taking it easy”. We certainly agree – it’s a relaxing city to live in and all our visitors say how chilled-out they feel when they’re here.

Recommendations on places to stay and eat in Malaga

Liz recommends several of the best hotels in Malaga, from budget to splurge. Our Guide to Malaga includes all of them except Dulce Dreams – we need to check this out – and Gran Hotel Miramar (We really must book that inspection visit!).

When it comes to places to eat, we feature three on those on Liz’s list. We need to visit La Cabra in Pedregalejo where Liz recommends the grilled sardines but we don’t include Los Gatos. It’s always too busy for us, although we know the traditional tapas are good. It’s also nice to see Víctor from We Love Tapas in there too – his tapas tour also features in our Guide to Malaga.

We’re grateful to Liz for including us in her article – it’s great to receive a mention for our Guide to Malaga!
