We have travelled to Malaga several times over the years. Airport is clean and has all facilities you need. Plenty of seating both in and amongst the travelers as well as being able to find a quiet corner. An area for improvement would be in the luggage security check area. It was a bit slow and lacke coordination . I would suggest a visit to Gatwick to view their set up which has had major improvements and is now extremely efficient and means you can be through to lounge in no time at all.

I would recommend hiring a car. It's an easy and cheap process that really opens the country up to you. We were there during the Easter Holy week. As a result the towns and cities we visited were really vibrant! Old town in Malaga is a great place to find lively tapas bars. I would also definitely check out the Roman Theatre in the city. It is very central and the visitor centre is totally free. The craft stalls along the promenade also had fantastic jewellery for cheap.

Renting a car is a good idea, as long as you rent it with the right company. Then, take one day at a time to visit each of the city of your interest. Don't drive more than 2-3 hours, so you can enjoy the city you are visiting by walking. Traveling from Malaga to Fatima Portugal was a very exciting experience, two driver is highly recommended. Leaving early Malaga is must, so you can arrive Fatima/Portugal around 11 am and stay for about 4-5 hours in Fatima and visiting Lisbon.

this time we stayed in Nerja, small town 40 minutes from Malaga. Quiet place, good admosphere, friendly people, nice restaurants, and a beautiful fireworks show at 31. December. And between christmans and 10. of january warm enough for walking, ( not really swimming) , or a drink on a terras. Malaga and Granada are not to far for a day Culture or shopping

Don't travel on a Saturday in August if you can avoid it! The Feria in Malaga provided a lively atmosphere and was a nice time to visit. Look out for Ferias in the places you are visiting. Train travel is cheap and easier that trying to find places to park in city centres.

We stayed in Ronda, about an hour and 20 mins from the airport. Roads were good and not too busy. Ronda's one-way streets are quite confusing and can be narrow. Check the bumps and scrapes on your rental car and take photos once you pick it up.
