Malaga is an excellent destination for outdoor activities thanks to its Mediterranean climate. Water sports, golf, beach volleyball and plenty more! Why not take up flamenco dancing whilst studying in the home region of flamenco? This is sometimes offered in the school as well as salsa classes, but if they are not available during your stay then the school will be happy to recommend you various dance schools in the area.
The school arranges different activities each week as well as weekend excursions. Mid-week you can expect things like Spanish movie nights, cookery workshops, visits to local museums and dance classes. Some activities are free and some have a small cost depending on the activity. Weekend excursions on offer tend to be visits to nearby cities, such as Seville and Granada.
Aside from its outdoor activities Malaga has a lot to offer. Explore the old pedestrian streets in the historic centre where you will find the Alcazaba, which is said to be the most well preserved fortress in Spain. Enjoy some of the city´s various tapas routes and, depending on when you arrive, you can also experience some of Malaga´s Andalusian festivals, such as the “Feria de Malaga” in August.
Insider call Málaga the city of “Boquéron” which means anchovy in Spanish. The city’s gastronomoy determined this nickname to the Andalusian fishermen city in fact of the high amount of anchovy fishing. Right in the middle of Costa del Sol, Malaga is one of the most touristic cities in Spain thanks to its beaches, innumerable sunny days and a gastronomy based on fish brought in daily by the fishermen at its port. Precisely, if anything distinguishes this Andalusian city it is their anchovies, which has converted into one of its main attractions and most recognized parts of its cultural identity.
Málaga is a briskly modern historic city yet but still has the atmosphere and swagger of a Mediterranean port. Admittedly, initial impressions can be discouraging as, like most Spanish cities, the shell is drab and industrial. But the kernel, the historic city center, is charming with its majestic, if peculiar, unfinished Gothic cathedral, surrounded by traditional balcony buildings, narrow pedestrian streets and some of the best tapas bars in the province. In recent years, the city has heavily invested in its culture and heritage with new museums, extensive restoration and a brand-new port development.
Málaga is a joy to stroll around, with a skyline that reflects the city’s eclectic character; church spires jostle for space with russet-red tiled roofs and lofty apartment buildings while, like a grand old dame, the 11th-century Gibralfaro castle sits grandly and provides the best view of all.
