A whole new life awaits you in magnificent Malaga
The largest city on the Costa del Sol and a place that really does have something for everyone, Malaga offers a wonderful opportunity to put down roots in southern Spain. Whatever you happen to be looking for from your new adventure, the chances are it can be found right here.
Home to more than half a million people, a sizable proportion of whom are ex-pats from the UK and many other nations, Malaga is busy, bustling and beautiful. It’s home to some stunning beaches, plenty of iconic history and a famously exciting social scene.
The city boasts excellent transport links, including the fourth busiest airport in the whole of Spain. Tourists visiting resorts such as Torremolinos and Nerja pass through the airport in significant numbers. As you will no doubt expect, Malaga and the surrounding area can be exceptionally busy in the summer months.
There’s a noticeable buzz in the city during this time, with a number of spectacular fiestas to be enjoyed. Outdoor markets abound, and in many cases the stall-holders continue to trade throughout the evening and into the night-time. Shopping for bargains in the warm night air is a truly delightful experience here.
Get from A to B with ease
If you’re looking to move to Malaga, it’s worth noting that the local public transport system is good, so you don’t necessarily have to restrict your search to the centre of the city. While there are plenty of superb properties in the centre, outlying neighbourhoods such as Teatinos, where the university is located, are also popular.
Due to the fact that Malaga is a thriving tourist destination, finding work here may be easier than you might have thought. There are a number of employment agencies in the city centre, and thanks to the wonders of the web it’s easier than ever before to source employment in advance of the move. Working in Spain is a hugely enjoyable experience, but it’s worth pointing that it’s even more enjoyable if you learn the language.
You’ll find hundreds of bars, tapas bars and restaurants to explore here. Eateries offering cuisine from all over the world are located in the city centre and on the waterfront, but if you want to live like a true Malagueño or Malagueña, head to the tapas bars and order a fish dish and a glass of red wine, then settle back and watch the world go by.
The beaches of the city offer a great selection of water-sports on and in the warm seas, while the whole Costa del Sol region brings you perhaps the finest golf courses to be found anywhere in Europe. The climate lends itself perfectly to the game, of course, so get ready to tee off in style under blissfully blue skies.
