Exploring beautiful Malaga
Take your rental car on a journey of discovery along the Costa del Sol and stop off in Marbella for a day to interact with the rich and beautiful. But also a trip to the Sierra de las Nieves with its snow-capped mountains in winter, the many small deep green lakes and the small watercourses is worth a trip, especially since you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Mediterranean from here. The Castillo de Colomares, situated south of Malaga, near Torremuelle, and the Castillo de Sohail in Fuengirola, which occasionally hosts various cultural events, markets and concerts, are particularly attractive. If you prefer to drive your rental car in the direction of Motril and Almería, then a detour to the caves near Nerja and the Museum of Sugar in Motril is worthwhile before you start your trip inland via Granada, Cordoba and Seville.
Our recommendation: If you are travelling without large luggage, it is advisable to rent a small car with which you can find a shady parking lot.
On the streets of Malaga
Have you considered a city trip over a long weekend? Then you have made an excellent choice with Malaga, as you can expect not only a multitude of museums, but also some nice cathedrals, different markets and a beautiful harbour where you can stroll along in the evening.
Thanks to its convenient location on the MA-22 motorway, you can take your rental car directly from the airport to the coastal towns of the regions. If you don't want to pick up your rental car immediately after your arrival, you can of course also take a taxi to the city center and the nearby villages. Alternatively, you can take an express bus every 20 minutes to the city center or take the S-Bahn line C1, which also leaves every 20 minutes during the day.
