Day Trips from Malaga

Enjoy a day trip! The center of Malaga and its neighborhoods are amazing and they have many things to offer and to see, but don’t forget that the province of Malaga is quite large and equally impressive.

If you are going to stay a few days in Malaga, try to escape one day and visit towns like Frigiliana– without a doubt, one of the most charming white villages of the Axarquía; Nerja, and just like that enjoy its wonderful beaches, or those of the nearest village, Maro! If you want to enjoy nature, in the west part of the province, villages like Casares or Genalguacil  are good examples of the beauty of the area.

In the north part of the province, one town is specially worth visiting: Antequera. With its “Sitio de los Dólmenes”- consisting of three buildings erected more than 6,000 years ago- declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2016. But Antequera has much more to offer: the Peña de los Enamorados and the karstic labyrinth of El Torcal and its gastronomy are other references to this monumental city.

There are many other towns and villages near Malaga, but we must insist you visit Ronda. Worldwide a unique spot, famous for its landscapes, nature, architecture, urbanism, and history. Stop by some of its wineries as well! The itinerary from Malaga is a real treat.

If you are up for a thrilling experience in one of the most spectacular places in the province, the Caminito del Rey (King’s Path) is the right activity for you. . This walkway that was once dubbed “the most dangerous path in the world” has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in Spain after its restoration.
