Malaga is an excellent holiday destination if you want to explore. It is full of culture with its museums, historical buildings and food. There are cycle tours, tapas tours, bus tours and food market tours most days. There are two main excellent beaches both with chiringuitos (restaurants) every hundred or so metre's serving mainly fish dishes. The narrow streets in the old part of town are great to explore and have a tapas or two. The bus and train route's are good and Malaga is easy to get to and from the airport by train at very little cost.
Its a city and you cannot get away from that fact. Its very busy and very noisy. Although it has two beaches i would not recommend it for a beach holiday especially if you have kid's. If you are planning on hiring a car to go further afield finding parking is not easy and it can take a while to get out of the city.
Great place to visit, perfect for a city break or days out. May be not so good for a family sun & sand holiday.
