Malaga is the center of attraction for adventurers from all over the world. The reason is due to the main natural attraction, Caminito del Rey, located over the gorge El Chorro at an altitude from 100 to 300 meters. It is an old and dilapidated narrow road paved with concrete. Today, the trail is considered one of the most dangerous tourist destinations in the world.

Village of El Morche

If you want to take a walk in places where there are no a lot of curious tourists with cameras, then take a look at the picturesque village of El Morche, which is a short drive from Malaga. There is a large fruit farm here, a walk on which will give you a lot of unforgettable impressions. Passing through the thick reeds at the entrance to the farm, you can see old farmhouses and huge cactuses, but the main interest is exotic fruit trees. Guests of the farm will be able to see how mangoes grow as well as take a look at the spreading fig and nectarous trees.

Another attractive place for fans of natural attractions is half an hour away from the city. The main feature of this suburban area is the variety of almond trees. When they bloom, they look like cherry blossoms, which is why this charming suburban area of Malaga is often referred by travelers as the Andalusian Japan.

When in Malaga, be sure to visit a nearby village Cartama. For many years, it has been a permanent venue for the equestrian fair. The event will be interesting to anyone who wants to learn the culture and traditions of the indigenous population.

When you get hungry, visit one of the popular beaches of Malaga. Along the coast, you can find one of the main gastronomic attractions of the city, small open-air cafes called Chiringuitos. In such a café, you can try seafood cooked on fire. One of the main treats is grilled sardines.

If you want to dine in a more refined and sophisticated setting, then you can go to the restaurant El Jardin, which is not far from the cathedral. It is definitely one of the most unusual restaurants in the city because every Thursday there are evenings of tango in the restaurant. Everybody can take part in dancing. If you can’t dance you can simply admire other couples who are skilled in tango. Don’t forget to try the specialties from the chef.
