Muelle Uno

05helmi

Do you know the new Port of Malaga? If your answer is no we recommend you to visit it when staying in Hotel Florida Spa as it is well worth it.

Nowadays the Port of Malaga is not simply a marina or a commercial, passenger, cruise and fishing port but also a modern outdoor shopping area called Muelle Uno with many shops, leisure areas and also very good quality restaurants.

This new concept of port, in very little time, has become one of the most important tourist attractions in Malaga city mainly because wandering around on a lovely sunny day is one of the most pleasurable activities you can enjoy when visiting the capital of Costa del Sol.

Not only the relaxing sound of water, the reflection of the sun on the water or the stunning yachts docked there are breathtaking, also the beautiful views that from there you have of the Cathedral and the Alcazaba are.

As we have commented on previous posts, the access to Malaga city from Fuengirola is very easy, as there is a train station located in Fuengirola city centre that connects it not only to Malaga city but also to other towns in Costa del Sol like Benalmadena or Torremolinos. Trains run very frequently so visiting Malaga city is not only easy but also comfy.

If you are currently staying with us in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, make the most of one of the warm and sunny winter days that at the moment we have to visit Malaga city and have a nice walk around Muelle Uno… We are sure that you will agree with us when we say that Malaga is looking more beautiful than ever!

Malaga and its monuments

29tammi

Have you ever visited Malaga when staying at Hotel Florida Spa?

Malaga is one of the most beautiful and most popular cities in Spain so if you have never visited it we encourage you to do so…you won’t regret it!

In Malaga you will find many interesting historical monuments like the Alcazaba and the Gibralfaro Castle.

The Alcazaba, one of its most emblematic monuments, is a fortress castle from the 11th Century located in the hillside of the Gibralfaro hill that belonged to the Muslim rulers of the city.

Although it is located in a high position it is also part of the historical centre of the city and on its top is where the Gibralfaro Castle stands, a castle built in the 14th Century to house the troops and protect the Alcazaba.

From the “Homenaje” tower you can enjoy beautiful views of the city and when skies are clear it is even possible to see África and the Straight of Gibraltar.

If you fancy getting to know the city of Malaga a little bit more you might be interested in knowing that for only 3.55€ you can visit both monuments and in case you visit them on Sunday after 2:00 P.M the entrance is free.

And why not making the most of it by also visiting the Roman Theatre situated at the bottom of the Alcazaba? Its entrance is free!

Here in Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to do a bit of tourism while staying with us and to discover the beauty hidden in every corner of MalagaDo not miss out!

Andalusian Snow

21tammi

When we think about Andalusia is normal to think about sun, beach, good weather, sangria and great food.

You can easily enjoy all these for example when you choose Hotel Florida Spa as your holiday accommodation, but Andalusia apart from all these wonderful things has much more to offer you!

If there is something that characterizes this region is diversity as coast and mountains and warm temperatures and cold ones can be found within a few minutes and a few kilometers.

Touristic and rural; modern and traditional, our region hides many real treasures to discover which are well worth it.

In fact, not many visitors know that in Andalusia it can even snow. This weekend for example not only the U.K has had snow warnings but also some Andalusian provinces like Jaen.

It is not weird either to see some snow during the winter in the highest areas of Malaga like Serranía de Ronda and Sierra de las Nieves which proves that the province of Malaga is an area of big contrasts.

124 miles away from Fuengirola you can find Sierra Nevada, the southernmost ski resort in Europe and an internationally outstanding place to ski lovers due to its wonderful location which ensures a great weather while practicing winter sports.

Interesting, right? Did you know we have snow so close? Make the most of your stay in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and enjoy all the wonders that Andalusía offers you.
