Málaga’s reputation is as sparkling as the Christmas Lights!

Big Brother Málaga is in the news for all the right reasons again. The Rough Guide and Frommers both recommend it as a “Must See” in 2015.

Malaga lights

It has taken a few years but the travel press is now taking very serious note of Málaga and everything it has to offer!

We of course, are not surprised. We have seen the most amazing change in the city over the last 20 years and finally, it is shaking off the reputation of being the Costa del Sol. It seems to be on everyone’s “hot list”, “bucket list”, “hit list” etc.etc.

In the last two weeks it has appeared in the following highly rated travel publications and guides as a firm favourite for 2015. How exciting is that?

The City welcomes two more incredible cultural attractions in 2015 when both the Pompidou Centre from Paris and the Russian State Museum of St.Petersburg will be opening Museums in the city.

Frommers Travel Guide names Málaga as one of “The Best Places to go in 2015”

All the world loves a party – Málaga Feria (16th – 23rd August 2014)

August 7, 2014

“Oh what a party, oh what a show!”

From Tutus and Toronto to Tapas

The city is slowly but surely slipping into party mode and getting dressed up in anticipation of the annual August Feria. Nobody does it better than the Malagueños in our opinion and a visit should be on everyone’s bucket list! It can be hard-core partying to do so for 9 days (and nights) in a row, so the secret is definitely to pace yourself!

Everything kicks off at midnight on the 15th with a magnificent firework display in the port, preceded by the opening speech or “pregon” which is always given by someone from the city (Antonio Banderas has given it in the past). This is followed by a concert on the beach into the early hours.

The “Day Feria” follows from 10.00am on the 16th and this is the only day the wonderful horses and carriages are permitted in the city centre. The fact that Málaga has the “Day…

Our favourite Restaurant in Málaga – JCG (José Carlos Garcia)

June 10, 2014

Another reason to love Málaga!

From Tutus and Toronto to Tapas

José Carlos in the kitchen José Carlos in the kitchen José Carlos Garcia first came to our notice many years ago when he was awarded a Michelin Star for his cuisine at the Café de Paris near the bullring in La Malagueta. With the opening of the new, magnificent port, Muelle Uno in the city it seemed totally appropriate that he should open a new restaurant in a prime location.

A bit of re-branding, a new name (JCG) has meant that he has never really looked back and the Michelin Star was first awarded to JCG a couple of years ago. We visited again last week and he seems to have found his feet and we had a superb meal in fabulous surroundings (we ate on the terrace that night which had just opened for summer, whereas on previous visits we had always eaten inside). The terrace is a haven of peace and tranquillity (despite…
