The city’s historic streets are always alive regardless of the outdoor temperature. Many people along the coast take the time to have a ‘paseo’ along the seafront, where you can stop for a drink or a cheap meal and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Málaga is also great for those seeking a more culutral experience, as the art scene in the city is alive regardless of the season.
