How to Spend 1 Day in Malaga

How to Spend 1 Day in Malaga

Visit the city of Malaga for a day and explore its history, wander the Pablo Picasso museum, and take a coastal sunset cruise. Plus, get in touch with Andalucia's traditional cuisine, flamenco performances, and historic coast. Here are a few ways to spend 24 hours in Malaga.

Morning: Welcome to Malaga

Get your bearings on an introductory city tour. Choose among a variety of options including  a Segway tour or a ride on the hop-on hop-off bus, which offers quick transportation between major landmarks including the Malaga Cathedral and Plaza de Toros. Travelers who would rather explore the city by foot can join a history-focused walking tour that usually includes sites such as the Roman Theater and Alcazaba Castle. Maximize time with a bike or e-bike tour that might stop at the historical city center, Malagueta Beach, and the lighthouse in the Malaga port.

Afternoon: Classic Cuisine and Picasso Paintings

Experience the classic cuisine of southern Spain in Malaga in the afternoon. Choices include hands-on cooking classes with themes such as paella or a tapas tour in which a local guide leads you in the Spanish tradition of hopping among tapas bars. To cover more ground, bike tours focused on tapas and wine are also available. Finish the afternoon with a dose of culture. Check out the Malaga Picasso Museum and see the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, plus several of the artist’s masterpieces on display. 

Night: Sunsets and Flamenco

Discover the vibrant dance of flamenco with an evening show. Book tickets to a live Flamenco show or choose a combination tour that might include evening tapas and a Flamenco performance. Learn about this traditional dance that is native to Andalucia. Alternatively, climb aboard a catamaran for a sunset cruise from the Port of Malaga that often includes a glass of Champagne. Catch a glimpse of the coastline of Malaga while the sun sets and the city lights glow.
