Im was in Malaga, Spain for my 22nd birthday!!! I was lucky enough to have met the most amazing group of friends, who made sure I had a special day. Its crazy how a group of strangers then are now some of my best friends.
Malaga is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol. This city is blessed with their high-rise hotels, resorts, hilltops, and yellow-sand beaches. Personally, I believe Malaga is underrated because this city is far from lacking in energy! There was PLENTY to do and see. Luckily, the city center and beach is walking distance from the cruise port. At first, I was looking for a taxi to bring me into the city, but I noticed how close everything was. I recommend walking to your destination and enjoying the beautiful scenery!
There are an array of excursions and activities to do in the city. Personally, I chose to walk Malaga on my own with a group of friends and it worked out in our favor! We rode on the Mirador Princess ferris wheel, which was only 8 euro for three rides. The most breathtaking views can be seen from the very top of the ferris wheel. Next, we took a horse carriage ride around the beach. The horse brought us to the beach and back, where we were able to see Plaza de Toros where the bull fighting takes place. Located in the center of the city is the famous street, La Calle Larios, where shopping can be done the right way! Make sure to look out for two clothing stores called Pull and Bear & Bershka!
We had a pretty lengthy stay in Malaga, which is not a complaint! The day was filled with adventure and the evening was spent at the beach. Just past the cruise port, you’ll find Malagueta, the most popular beach in Malaga. Beach chairs and umbrellas can be rented for a small fee for those who wanted to relax before boarding the ship. Some of the best sangria in Malaga can be found right on the beach! I celebrated with a big pitcher of red sangria!
