Corner view Málaga: The great outdoors

The corner view project at Spain Daily looks at life around the world: This week's theme is The great outdoors.

My corner is the province of Málaga which is visited by millions of tourists every year, mainly from Europe. Most come here for the mild climate and nice beaches.


In July and August the beaches are a lot more crowded than on this photo.

If you like tennis, paddle, golf, windsurfing, skiing, etc. you don't have to worry about waiting for the good weather. Most days the weather is nice.


However, Málaga has more than sunshine and nice beaches - there are also beautiful mountains to explore.


Nature walks (senderismo) is very popular and a great way to experience the nature.

Many sundays are spent walking one of the many paths (senderos) and when you meet other groups you may stop and have a chat.
Sierra Nevada, Europe's most southern ski resort is less than two hours drive from Málaga airport.


Pico del Cielo - a popular route. It is great to have your lunch of bread, olive oil, jamon ibérico and a little red wine when you reach the top :-)

  3. I had no idea you could ski in Malaga ... but I think one of those deck chairs right on the shore would do me just fine!

  8. I love the beach, just don´t like to share it with millions of others. So I would hop over in winter.
    And sign me up for that lunch on top of the Pico del Cielo....just reading it made me hungry!

  10. That's such a healthy lifestyle. :)

    I hope my knees recover so that I can walk again. Right now I can forget about hiking as even 80 minutes of walking isn't something I can't handle.

  13. Murasaki: Sorry to hear about your knee problems, hopefully you will recover ...
    To tell you; after our first hiking expedition I was not able to walk for two days - one knee was swollen and hurting so much that I thought I would not be able to walk normal again, but my problem was only (fortunately) because I was not in a very good shape ...
