The climate is mild and warm and invites people to sunbathe on the endless beaches until October, but Malaga also offers experiences with no chance of sand getting in your shoes. The first thing you will notice in the city is the openness of the people and their outgoing lifestyle, which you will encounter in the streets, plazas, and in the many tapas bars. The streets in the old part of town is a good place to experience this.
Malaga is green all year round and even in January the average temperature does drop below 12C.
