JUST a week after being named the second most exciting destination on the planet for 2015 by travel experts Rough Guide, Malaga has been featured in another prestigious travel guide as one of the must-visit destinations in the coming year.

Frommer’s, the world-renowned travel experts, has listed Malaga as one of their 15 Best Places to Go 2015, citing its weather and culture as highlights. Handpicked by the guide’s editors, Malaga features alongside places such as Shanghai, Argentina and London, and the guide states that, “2015 in particular is the best time to discover – or rediscover – these 15 sensational places.”

“With miles of shoreline, a rich culture, and an average January temperature of 63 degrees, Malaga, on Spain’s southern coast, has a lot going for it – except relatively few tourists are, which qualifies it as a find,” says Frommer’s.


“Paris’ Centre Pompidou selected Malaga as the site of the first ‘Pop-Up Pompidou.’ The art museum opens in the spring and will be the capstone of the resurgence of Andalucia’s second-largest city.

“The transformation began in 2011 with the opening of both the Palmeral de Las Sorpresas, an elegant seaside promenade that replaced the gritty working waterfront, and the Museo Carmen Thyssen, a showcase of 19th and early 20th century Spanish paintings.

“The city has become a great option for travellers who want to enjoy the cultural offerings of a vibrant city, but still be close to the Costa del Sol beaches.”

Last week Rough Guide also highlighted the Centre Pompidou in Malaga as a reason to visit in 2015. Frommer’s concluded: “Sun, culture, beaches and affordable prices earn Malaga a spot on our 2015 list.”
