Malaga impresses you with its light, its amazing climate and its stunning coastline, but above all it impresses you with the friendly, open nature of its people. The essence of Malaga is the result of the melting pot of all the civilizations that have settled here over the years. Malaga is a true port city, open and welcoming.

The native city of the brilliant Pablo Picasso, Malaga has managed to preserve its essence alongside a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Basking in the sun, practising sport or savouring tasty fish dishes in any of its numerous seafront restaurants, combined with its wealth of monuments, museums and exhibitions, make this a very unique city. Once upon a time, Malaga was simply the gateway to the Costa del Sol. Today it is a destination in its own right.

Example of a school trip in Malaga:

D.1. Arrival and settling-in. Welcome!

D.2. We start with a guided tour of the city, including the Cathedral, the Alcazaba and the Castle of Gibralfaro. After a picnic lunch, we visit the Picasso Museum which features drawings, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and engravings by the brilliant Malaga-born artist. We finish with a stroll around its historic quarter, along the emblematic Calle Larios and through the Plaza de la Merced.

D.3. One-day trip to Granada where we visit the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, take a stroll through the Albaicín neighbourhood and eat a picnic lunch at the Viewpoint of San Nicolás. Later on we visit the marvelous Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens.

D.4. Excursion to the White Villages of Andalusia: Ronda, with its bullring and Bandolero Museum, and the picturesque village of Mijas. After a picnic lunch, in the afternoon we head for Marbella and Puerto Banús on the Costa del Sol.

D.5. Excursion to Nerja: here we visit the caves (whose cave paintings have made them a geological heritage site) before a picnic lunch. In the afternoon we head for the Tropical Coast of Granada with its unique microclimate and magnificent beaches. Here students will visit the towns of Salobreña and Almuñecar which has a botanical garden containing an extensive collection of tropical plants and 120 species of birds.

D.6. Farewell and departure. See you soon!

Other recommended activities:

  • Hot chocolate with churros (dipping doughnuts): a great snack to sample!

Some of our favourites…
