Birthplace of Picasso, the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Málaga is situated on the beautiful Andalucía coastline. Blessed with sunshine and fantastic quality of life, Málaga provides lively nightlife, museums and exceptional seafood restaurants alongside wide boulevards, swaying palm trees and beautiful beaches.
Enjoying a privileged geographical position, the coastal area is protected from the North winds by the mountains ensuring the highest average temperatures in Spain and over 300 days of sunshine per year. While along its rugged eastern part rocky projections of land penetrate the sea, the western area is milder and sandier with large beaches making it one of the most developed areas of Andalusia due to its demographic and tourist appeal.
Population of the metropolitan area(urban area plus satellite towns) is over 1 million, ranking as the 5th largest metropolitan area in Spain, yet it only has 4 gay bars, and that’s all! It is mostly to do with Torremolinos, Malaga’s neighbouring town have a well established gay scene, just 20 min drive.
DEGREES Tip: Malaga is synonymous with sunshine.
