Things to do

The towering Gibralfaro Castle offers a peak into the rich history of the city. The sight of this 10th-century structure, located atop a hill, is enough to ignite the imagination of kids and adults alike. Walking along its ramparts reveals glorious panoramic views of Málaga, sure to remain etched in your memories for years to come.

Meander along the charming promenade of Palmeral de Las Sorpresas. This waterfront location, lined with palm trees, is ideal for relaxed strolls or bike rides with the family. Engage in interesting activities that abound around this location—boat rides, live performances, and street entertainment.

Take a breather at Jardines de Puerta Oscura, a tranquil garden offering lush green areas, stunning views of the Alcazaba fortress, and vast play areas for children. This place is ideal for winding down after a busy day of sightseeing.

For the tech-savvy families, a visit to the thriving Málaga TechPark is surely a remarkable highlight. A tour of this buzzing tech hub, housing companies of the future, is an amazing window into what lies ahead.

When to visit

Enveloped in a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, Málaga is a sunny delight throughout the year, making it a viable family travel destination in any season. With around 300 days of annual sunshine, there's always a good day in Málaga regardless of when you choose to visit.

Keen beachgoers should plan their holidays in or around June when the sun is out, offering perfect conditions for sunbathing and beach trips. Those interested in participating in lively festivities can plan in conjunction with events like the Three Kings' Parade in January, Carnival celebrations in February, or the Málaga Film Festival in March. Remember, with warm weather extending from May all through to September, a family holiday in Málaga is nothing short of an endless Mediterranean fiesta. Just keep in mind—the months of July and August can be quite busy and expensive.
