Tips for First-Time Travellers to Malaga
Travelling from Malaga Airport (AGP)
Once you’ve disembarked your flights to Malaga, making your way from Malaga Airport (AGP) to the city is easy. A bus leaves the terminal every 20 minutes and costs less than 5€. There’s also a train, which costs less than 3€ and stops right in the middle of the city. A taxi journey will set you back around 20€.
Hit the Beach
As soon as you’ve found your cheap flights to Malaga, it’s time to start dreaming about the beach. Just west of the city, Sacaba beach is more quiet than the main beach of Malagueta, which makes it the perfect place to relax after your long flights to Malaga. Some of Malaga’s best beachside restaurants can be found a little further from the city, at El Palo Beach.
See The Sights by Bicycle
Chances are, you booked your return flights to Malaga for a chance to see the sights. The city’s flat roads and wide, long boardwalk make it the perfect place to bike around. You can rent a bike for half the day or a full day at one of the city’s numerous bike rental stores.
The Best Time to Visit
Finding cheap flights to Malaga during the summer months can be a challenge, as tickets to Malaga are more expensive during the tourist season. Visiting during the pre-summer months of March to May could help you find return flights to Malaga at a much more reasonable price. This time of year also offers a break from the intense heat and summer crowds, although the city is not as vibrant as during the peak season.

The Bulls Arena
La Plaza de Toros La Malagueta dates all the way back to 1874. Even if bullfights are not your thing, it’s worth visiting the arena for the historical and cultural significance it plays in the city’s landscape.
