Once children enter kindergarten, daycare or school, uninterrupted time together becomes more important than ever. It doesn’t really take a lot to keep kids happy, but parents still need to be creative, dynamic, prepared for just everything, and last but not least - organized! You know your kids need a cozy place to stay and lots of playtime. We’ve made it easy for you and made a list of all the activities, places and family-friendly accommodations in Malaga. 

OK--first things first -best accommodation for children in Malaga. We all hate those evening hours when we KNOW we have to put our little ones to bed. It’s time of negotiation, bargain, and persuasion. That’s why you need a child-friendly hotel, possibly with pool and adventure playground so that your kids will burn out all the surplus of energy through the day. You need a hotel with as little areas that are out of bounds, or an apartment with extra rooms, and comfy beds. We checked some family-friendly hotels&apartments in Malaga and decided these are our top 5 in 2018.

Malaga offers all sorts of activities for families. It is an incredibly play-full city with numerous playgrounds and parks for your little ones. And we suggest you join them. 


As we get old, we forget about a golden rule of youth: Play, play, play! Best advice we can give you is to go out, run, jump and play -- with your offsprings. And Malaga is one big playpark. Playground equipment of all sorts and sizes will please children from toddlers to the age of seven, with its slides, swings, ropes, nets, sandpits, and climbing areas. Your little explorer bursting with energy will love every bit of your Malaga trip, but a playground is a must, believe us.
