The Deets on this Destination
Sign your stag party up for a trip to Malaga if you want to combine clubbing with sunbathing, culture and watersports. This coastal city has smartened up its act in the last few years. These days, you’ll find pavement cafes, gastrobars, designer stores and trendy restaurants alongside landmarks like the well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, Alcabaza and Picasso’s house.
One of the few Spanish cities that have managed to hold on to its heritage, Malaga has also embraced the 21st century. It isn’t all about bars and boutiques. If you want to experience real Spanish life on your Malaga lads holiday, head for the heart of the city and its winding lanes where you’ll find traditional taverns, eateries and shops. If you want to hit the beach head for La Malagueta, which lies only a stone’s throw from the city centre.
