Day trips from our Bed and Breakfast in Málaga Spain.

Day trips from our Bed and Breakfast in Málaga Spain.

There is plenty to do. Our B&B is centrally located in Andalusia for various excursions
Get in the mood and watch the video . We have created a beautiful photo book with all the trips you can make from our B&B. Of course we are happy to advise you!

Malaga 30 mins
Most guests fly into Málaga Airport and leave with a rental car to explore Andalusia. Don't forget to visit the city of Malaga. Just 30 minutes from our B&B you are in the historic center of the capital of the province of the same name.

There is something for everyone: shopping in Calle Marqués de Larios, visiting historical monuments such as the Cathedral from 1700 or the Castillo Gilbralfaro and nearby the Alcazaba fortress.

For those who love gardens , Jardin de la Concepción is recommended, just on the outskirts of Málaga on the route to our B&B in Riogordo.
Would you rather stroll on the boulevard near the harbor? That is also possible. Marvel at the enormous cruise ships that dock there and give their passengers the opportunity to explore Málaga.
If it is unexpectedly rainy or too hot, visit one of the museums: Museo Carmen Thyssen , Center Pompidou (a branch of Paris) or the Picasso Museum . Pablo Picasso is also a born Malagueño: A visit to his birthplace is highly recommended. For more tips you can of course just contact us.
We think it is such a nice city that from April 2023 we will also have an apartment for rent there, Loft2Stay

Granada 65 minutes
The historic city of Granada with the world-famous Alhambra is an hour's drive from our B&B (click here to reserve tickets). A huge historic palace from Moorish times, well worth a visit. It is not without reason that it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Albaucin district at the foot of the Alhambra, with nice restaurants and narrow alleys, is also worth a visit. What is also special about Granada is that you almost always see snow on the mountain tops of the Sierra Nevada.

Antequera 40 minutes
A special city, but less known in our province of Málaga. 30,000 inhabitants, nice center and a beautiful arena. Well worth a visit and a nice walk through the city center. Can be easily combined with a walk on El Torcal, an impressive mountain range and the saltwater lagoon Fuente de Piedra . A salt lake where flamingos breed.

In the morning a nice walk in the nature park and then lunch in the city around 2 p.m. and then back to our finca for a refreshing dip in the pool. Of course you can still enjoy a sunset that never bores us.
Please note that shops in Antequera are closed from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Ronda 55 minutes
After a delicious breakfast at our B&B and a beautiful drive of about 1.5 hours, Ronda, one of the oldest cities in Spain. Located on a mountain plateau 2500 m above sea level. The city is best known for the El Tajo gorge that splits the old and new city but is now connected by the mighty Puente Nuevo bridge.

Ronda is touristy, but definitely worth a day trip. Take a different route on the outward journey than on the return journey and enjoy the special landscapes. We can recommend a number of beautiful car routes. Then you can enjoy the fantastic surroundings even more.

Cordoba 100 minutes
Another city where an attraction is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We are of course talking about the Mezquita . First a Catholic church, then demolished and a Mosque was built in 756. After the last Moors were expelled from the region, the building was transformed into a cathedral again in 1236. The church was actually built around the Mosque. This has created a unique structure that is really worth a visit. And don't forget the beautiful narrow streets. Still time left? Then visit the Medina Azahara, located just outside Cordoba. That is an old walled Arab city from the time of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Marbella 60 minutes
Would you like to see how the jet set experiences the Costa del Sol? Then take a day trip to Marbella. Marvel at the large yachts and expensive cars and enjoy the old town. The drive there is mainly between towers of hotels and apartments; You now know why we chose our B&B on the other side of Málaga.

Day at the beach and sea
Our B&B does not have a sea view, but you can easily reach the coast with the wonderful beaches of the Costa del Sol. In the city of Málaga there are fantastic beaches to relax and plenty of cozy traditional eateries. The wide beaches at Torre del Mar are quieter, with excellent eateries and the so-called chiringuitos: beach bars where you can eat freshly grilled fish.

A little further along the coast, just past Nerja, is the village of Maro, where there are beautiful, quiet bays hidden between the mountains. If you want more excitement, the beaches at Torremolinos and Benalmádena are also an option.

Nature and walking
It is recommended that you put on your walking shoes at least once. You can take beautiful walks from the B&B. Or take the car and drive to El Torcal or Nerja, for example. And if you can get a ticket then you should definitely walk the Caminito del Rey ! A bit busy, but definitely a bucket list item. If this doesn't work, we also have a spectacular hike at Canillas de Aceituno, the Saltillo . The alternative to the Caminito del Rey.

You can already hit the slopes about a 1.5-hour drive from our B&B. From November to April it is possible to enjoy the snow. Hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just enjoying the beautiful winter view.

The area surrounding our B&B in Andalusia is mountainous, ideal for the trained cyclist. There are beautiful routes with both climbs and descents. It is possible to cycle flat on the coast. We have 2 e-bikes that you can rent. Of course we also have contacts with bicycle rental on the coast or electric bicycle that is delivered to us, who can arrange something for you.
