Did you know that you can now enjoy a full tour of Malaga (including sightseeing bus, entrance to museums, boat trip around the bay and more) for just €25?
Málaga City Council and the City Sightseeing bus company have put together an amazing new product aimed at tourists wishing to experience the city’s culture. This new “Malaga Experience” – that’s the name of this new bus pass– can be purchased on the Malaga Tour Buses or, if you are staying with us at Sunset Beach Club, at the Leisure Desk located on the 6th floor of the hotel.
With less than a week to go until the start of its famous ‘Semana Santa’ (Holy Week), the city of Malaga is gearing itself up to welcome thousands of visitors who every year line its streets to watch the breathtaking processions.
It’s a truly unique experience which all visitors to the Costa del Sol should experience at least once. The sight of the gigantic thrones (known as Tronos) being carried by over 200 men and the colourful costumes worn by members of the brotherhoods; the smell of fresh flowers and burning incense; the sound of music and peoples cheering and singing… a truly memorable experience!
Boasting an impressive total of 380 different bird species, the province of Málaga is becoming an interesting option for bird watching enthusiasts from all over Europe.
The conservation of vast natural parks and areas as well as the important bird migration taking place from August to November have contributed to the area’s popularity as an ideal destination for Bird Watching holidays.
This rich bird life and the fact that there are over 10 million tourists who travel every year to bird watch make the promotion of the area as a top Bird Watching Holiday destination a logical step for the Malaga Province Tourist Board.

We’re always looking for fun and interesting things for out guests to do whilst on holiday with us and we think we might well have stumbled across a great one here: Gourmet Tapas Tours in Malaga.
It’s funny how we came across these unique tapas tours… they actually mentioned us on Twitter after having taken a group of guests who were staying at our hotel on one of their fabulous gastronomic tapas tours of Malaga. Turns out they’ve actually had over 30 groups of Sunset Beach Club guests take one of their tours so they must be doing something right
