Malaga has long been a holiday hotspot for Europeans whatever the time of year. With an airport serving many low-cost airlines and on the edge of Andalucia, one of the sunniest regions in Spain, it makes a wonderful, all-round travel destination especially with a cheap hire car. Situated directly on the Mediterranean coast, the city serves as an effective base for holidaymakers with car hire who want to explore the southern region of the country.
Festivals in and around Malaga are held regularly throughout the year and are just the ticket to top off a superb holiday experience. The local car hire stations in Malaga can provide information about the latest events in the area. The Autovia A7, also known as the Mediterranean motorway, provides a fast route to resorts along the Mediterranean coast and is set to form one of the longest motorways in Europe. Don’t forget to reserve your hire car with air conditioning during the hot summer months or, even better, why not splash out and go for a convertible?
For those searching something a little less hectic, travelling an hour and a half east in your hire car will lead to Granada, a picturesque town in the shade of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This beautiful, historical city which hosts the Alhambra Palace provides an escape from the summer crowds found in the nearby coastal towns. An excursion to Ronda, less than 65 miles away, makes another worthwhile day trip as well as offering an insight into Spanish life away from the high-rise hotels. One place you should definitely not forget to visit when hiring a car in Malaga, is Sevilla, the capital of Andalucia. By taking the A45 and A92 motorways, the town famous for its bitter oranges can be reached easily.
For beach fans with car hire, the Costa del Sol boasts such a wide range of beaches that there is always something to suit everyone. Whether you’re driving around looking for white or dark sand, windsurfing, paragliding, isolation and peacefulness or an endless number of facilities, you will undoubtedly be able to find your style of beach. The resorts of Benalmadena and Torremolinos with their long seafronts, extensive tourist facilities and notably vibrant nightlife are located less than 10 miles away. It’s easy to escape the crowds and get back to nature by visiting the national park beaches around Nerja and Maro to the east of Malaga.
Plenty of sights in the centre of Malaga are within easy walking distance of each other so leave your hire car in one of the many parking spaces and explore on foot. Two of the largest car parks are located in Avenida de Andalucía and Plaza San Juan de la Cruz and are only a few minutes walk from the centre. It won’t take you long to realise just how important Malaga’s most illustrious offspring is to the town. The Museo Picasso Málaga houses a vast collection of Picasso works ranging from his sketches to some of his more rare offerings to the world of ceramic art. The spectacular building in which the museum is housed, the Palacio de Buenavista, was built in the 16th century and is remarkable in its own right. The Roman Amphitheatre and the Plaza de Toros (bullring) are just a stone’s throw away and form two key monuments of Spanish culture and history worth a visit by day or night.
