Where to find tourist offices in Malaga

Guide to Malaga offers lots of information on the city, but it’s still useful to visit one of the tourist offices in Malaga. The good news is that you’re never far from at least one in the city centre and at all main transport centres. And they have good opening hours and unlike lots of shops and business in Malaga, don’t generally close for a long lunch break.

City Council tourist offices

There are six tourist offices in Malaga manned by the city council plus one at Malaga Airport. They’re the best for information about the city – opening times for monuments and museums. They can also tell you what’s on in Malaga link during your visit.

Staff are generally helpful and between them, speak several languages. You can get a free map of Malaga that marks the tourist offices and 37 things to see. The map isn’t great for finding your way round and you’ll need your glasses to read the names of the streets, but it gives you an idea.
