When looking at flights, it is always important to plan the timing of your holiday whilst considering how the time of year will affect your destination. If you’re looking for a quieter holiday at a time when the heat is not so intense, look to off -season periods. If you prefer the hustle and bustle of busy city life and as much sun as you can handle, look at the peak tourist season.

Malaga’s peak tourist season usually runs from June to October: when the weather is hot and incredibly dry. This is when the majority of holidaymakers will take a trip to the sun-kissed shores of southern Spain. Though most of the rain Malaga experiences falls between the months of November and March, it still remains a lovely off-season holiday destination. The temperature never falls too low and lower tourist numbers may mean you have a better chance to explore the region in peace.


The main airport for access to Malaga is the Malaga Costa Del Sol Airport (AGP) which lies roughly five miles outside of Malaga. The airport provides easy access to much of the surrounding area and is heavily used by tourists heading to the region. However, it never hurts to look at other airports in Spain, which may offer a cheaper fare, before travelling to Malaga.


Malaga has a lot to offer any tourist so whether you are interested in the cultural history of the city, prefer relaxing on a beautiful sandy beach or want to partake in a little bit of both, Malaga could prove to be the perfect destination time and time again.
