Bars in town, bars on the beach, restaurants, wineries, and even Michelin star chefs make up the special flavor that is boasted in Costa del Sol.


Did you know that Malaga has various designations of origin? Yes, products such as the olive from Aloreña, Antequera oil – which due to its low acidity is perfect for cooking -, custard apple from the tropical coast or raisins from Malaga; or the avocado cultivated for the most part in the region of Axarquía; among others, they are products that, being traditionally made, are respectful of the environment.






We invite you to discover this wonderful gastronomic landscape visiting places such as Torremolinos, Puerto Marina, El Palo, and Pedregalejo. If you are enjoying a few days of vacation in Torremolinos, you cannot miss out on the roasted pepper salad, the traditional “pescaíto frito” or the famous espetos, the hallmark of the people of Malaga, which are small sardines strung on metal roasts roasted on the grill. If you decide to try them, the best season to taste them is from July 16th to September 8th, although, fortunately, they can be enjoyed all year round. Let’s not forget dessert! The cakes Torremolinos have are a must-try when dining in these incredible places.
