Best Day Trips from Malaga

By Viator, July 2014

4 29 Reviews | Add your review

More than just beaches await you on a trip to Málaga: Given its location on the southern Spanish border, the city is not only within driving distance of many other local treasures, but also other countries altogether. So do yourself a favor and set aside 24 hours for one of these totally doable day trips from Málaga.

Andalucía Favorites

Andalucía -- it’s toasty, ultra-Spanish, and filled with unique cities worth adding to your travel itinerary. On your quest to discover more of Spain’s second-largest region, consider taking a day trip to Seville. There, a sightseeing tour will include – among other stops -- a visit to the Alcázar, the Cathedral of Santa María and its Giralda (tower), and even some free time to explore.

Also within driving distance from Málaga is the courtyard-filled town of Córdoba. Get to know its diverse history with visits to the Roman Bridge, Jewish quarter, and, most notably, its mosque-turned-church the Grand Mezquita.

Morocco

But hey, more than just Spain is within your day-trip reach -- so is Morocco! On a day trip to Tangier, you’ll cross the Gibraltar Straight by ferry before arriving in the North African country of Morocco. There, you’ll spend a full day getting to know local culture via a walking tour of the medina, a live Berber dance performance, shopping at a bazaar, and lunching on a dish of couscous or tagine.

Gibraltar

Another not-so-Spanish territory is within your reach too: Gibraltar. Head to this southern monolith situated just two hours away from Málaga. Tour its massive rock, make friends (or perhaps enemies) with the wild monkeys, and go on a sightseeing tour of the natural grotto St. Michael’s Cave. Finally, take advantage of all things British with a stroll down Main Street, where you can enjoy “local” specialties, ranging from shops to restaurants.
