All you need for a short break in Malaga

As regular followers of Guide to Malaga will know, we launched a downloadable guide at the end of last year. Our Malaga on a Short Break guide to everything you need to know to make the best of a short break in Malaga has so far been very successful and we’ve had excellent feedback.

But all new products need an introduction so we’ve put together some FAQs about our e-guide. Read on to discover why we wrote it, what’s in it and (most importantly of all 😉) why you should get your copy.

Why has Guide to Malaga produced a downloadable guide as an ebook?

Guide to Malaga has over 400 pages of content and comes packed with information for tourists and visitors. We know it’s useful because we get lots of emails each week thanking us for the information.

However, we’re also very aware that if you want to plan a short break in Malaga, you don’t have time to trawl through the Guide to Malaga website. So, we’ve done the work for you and produced a downloadable e-guide with all the information you need.

We’ve detailed daily itineraries for a 2, 3 or 5-day visit to ensure you see and experience the very best that Malaga has to offer. Everything you need is now all in one (concise) place in an easy-to-read and use guide.


What’s in Malaga on a Short Break?

The short answer is everything! The longer answer is lots of full-colour pages of comprehensive information about visiting Malaga.

You’ll find detailed itineraries covering:

  • What to see and do.
  • Recommendations for where to eat and drink.
  • Insider tips and insight.

All you need to ensure your visit takes in the absolute best of Malaga.

Do I have to follow the itineraries?

No, our guide to a short break in Malaga is designed as a mix and match. Take a look and choose what you want to see and do, and then combine the days or half-days to suit you.

Does the guide include maps?

Yes, we’ve included 2 Google maps that are tailor-made for the e-guide. The first map in the guide takes you round the walking tour we recommend for Day 1. This tour guides you round the main sights and allows you to get an overview of the city and its layout. The map is easy to follow and signposts the main sights in the written description.

The second map shows you where all the attractions and recommended eateries are in the city. You’ll find all the museums, all the restaurants, all the breakfast bars, all the live music venues…. mentioned in the guide on this map.

Both maps ensure you can find your way round Malaga quickly and easily. And most importantly, see where the best places are on your short break in Malaga.

Are there pictures in the guide?

Yes, and plenty of them throughout the 21 pages. No travel guide would be complete without offering a visual guide to the destination and Malaga on a Short Break is no exception. It comes packed with full-colour pictures showcasing the best of the city. Our aim here is to inspire you to visit Malaga.

What about the recommendations?

Like just about everyone, we look for recommendations when we travel to a new destination. But we also know that while TripAdvisor and Google are useful sources, there’s nothing like a recommendation from a local. All the eateries included in Malaga on a Short Break are personal recommendations from us at Guide to Malaga. We either visit the venues regularly or know people who do.

What about insider tips?

You don’t have a lot of time on a short break to Malaga and you want to make the most of it. Our guide includes lots of insider tips to ensure you make the most of your stay and get to experience Malaga on and off the beaten tourist trail.
