      I used to visit Malaga on a day trip once or twice a year, when my family lived on the Costa del Sol. I love it - nice shops and restaurants

      I love Malaga and its surrounds. In the province a nice coastal town to visit would be Nerja. There are fantastic caves there where each July they hold a festival of music and dance. Marvellous. Keep on writing about Spain and I will keep reading!
