In the Malaga accommodation section you’ll find 4 listings offering the 5 best hotels or hostals in each category whether they’re boutique gems, budget venues, splurge options or unusual stays. Eats goes to town on Malaga’s long, long list of bars and restaurants, and the 13 listings include 5 of the best tapas places (budget and gourmet), treat yourself restaurants, craft beer bars, afternoon teas and many others. And if you’re shopping for tasteful souvenirs – and we’re not talking kiss-me-quick hats or Picasso t-shirts here – and typical Malaga produce (think wine, cheese, raisins, cold cuts…), the four listings in the Buys section suggest where to buy them.
