Home City Break Malaga finally turned extremely great and charming

Malaga finally turned extremely great and charming

Sitting at a sunny terrace by waterfront is the perfect place for me.

Name: Antonio Montejo
Born: 1983 in Malaga
Profession: Tourist Promotor
My City: Malaga, Spain


Here I grew up: East part of Malaga city

Why I choose Malaga

It’s a charming city and the people are very polite. Malaga has a wide range of historical monuments and 29 museums as well as a new Marina in the Port area. The transformation of Malaga in the last ten years has been absolutely great.

My early memory: Playing in the sand at La Malagueta. I believe my relationship with the beach started when I was very young and the reason I prefer to live at the waterfront. I could not live without watching the Mediterranean Sea when I wake up in the morning.

My favourite place to eat

El Cabra – a restaurant in the Pedregalejo are in the old fishing village. Sitting at a sunny terrace right in the promenade, waterfront and the atmosphere, the vibrant life is the perfect place for me.

What do you eat? Fresh fried fish in all varieties.

Meet the Locals

Los Banos del Carmen in the East part of the city. For a walk and to watch the sunset while I enjoy a cup of Marroquian tea.

My favourite bar: La Chanela in Pedregalejo – to have some mojitos on the terrace with a view to the sea.

Best place for first date: Parador de Gibralfaro boast the best view of Malaga bay and downtown. This hotel is almost wall to wall with the Castle of Gibralfaro, an Arabic monument dated in the 14th century.

My secret place: I love to get lost in the quite of La Conception tropical garden. This is the largest one in Europe and really worth a visit – to watch plants and trees from five continents.

My best advice: Walks in the historical centre and enjoy the narrow streets. Don’t miss a visit to the Cathedral and the Picasso Museum.

My favourite shop: All in Calle Larios and Calle Nueva, the shopping district in Malaga.

Taxi or other local transport? I ride my bike and drive my scooter, but busses connect you to all part of the city.

Where next? I would love to visit Thailand.
