It is easy to understand why Malaga City is dubbed the Capital of the Costa del Sol. it now competes successfully for attention, thanks to its profusion of quirky museums, delightful pedestrianised centre, innovative restaurants.
We will meet at our centre at about 9.30am and head up to Gatwick for early afternoon. We fly out from Gatwick in the late afternoon so will eat en-route. If we arrive at Malaga too late for our evning meal then we will dine out for the first night.
Today is spent familiarising ourselves with the surroundings, from the hotel to the seafront and the shops. We will eat out at lunch time and explore the town or chill out by the pool in the afternoon. In the evening we will venture once again into town before settling back at the hotel for the entertainment.
Today we venture to the Malaga Bio Park. This is a zoo in which the animals live side-by-side in a recreation of their natural habitat in order to promote their development. It has three different areas: Madagascar, Equatorial Africa and South-east Asia. A tour around the facilities of Bioparc Fuengirola will allow you to enjoy the experience of zoo immersion, where vegetation and water elements are constant features of the landscape.You'll have the chance to see numerous species of birds, mammals and reptiles such as the Nile crocodile, gorillas, servals…and it also has a shop, children's area and restaurant area.
