Málaga is a city you will fall in love with for many reasons: its sea, its streets and its sunsets where time stands still. On this occasion, we suggest you stop time on a specific date: 14th February, Valentine's Day. But any time is a good time to stop the clock and let yourself be carried away by the magic of our city. Here are some ideas to enjoy as a couple.
Love for culture: a Valentine's Day with a lot of art
If you are passionate about art and want to spend a different kind of day, your perfect plan is to visit one of the many museums in the city. Discover the place where the memories of the most universal artist, Pablo Picasso, were forged in the Birthplace Museum where he was born. Andalusian genre art at the Carmen Thyssen Museum is another must, as well as the history of Málaga through its artists at the Museum of Málaga, whose archaeological collections are spectacular. If you prefer contemporary art, the Centre Pompidou Málaga or the two venues of the Contemporary Art Centre (CAC Málaga and CAC Málaga-La Coracha) are a must.
Another stop on your Málaga cultural route is the Tabacalera Building, which houses the Russian Museum Collection, where you can currently see an exhibition for the first time of Jennifer Green's private art collection, which has brought together an exceptional group of paintings and drawings that reflect the splendour of Russian artistic creation in the 19th and 20th centuries. The same building houses the Automobile and Fashion Museum, another landmark in the city's museum offer.
Gamer fun and a universe of imagination
Nothing brings together more than a day of fun and this is more than guaranteed in the new space that has just opened its doors in Málaga: we are talking about OXO Museo del Videojuego. In the heart of the old town, this space spread over three floors offers a journey through the history of video games and the chance to play some of the most legendary games in history. Another of the most fun places to visit as a couple is the Museum of Imagination, in the Soho Barrio de las Artes, where ingenuity and creativity are on offer.
Walk through the old town and sunset from Gibralfaro
It's a classic: strolling through the narrow streets of Málaga's old town, visiting the city's historic monuments, admiring the architecture of its buildings... To top it all off, climb up to the Gibralfaro viewpoint to watch the sunset through La Coracha and admire how the sunset paints the sky with a palette of warm, vibrant colours.
A romantic walk through the Botanical-Historical Garden of La Concepción
Undoubtedly, a magical and unique experience. This historic garden is located in a privileged setting surrounded by mountains, with a temperate climate and a wide variety of vegetation. The space has a wide variety of exotic plants and flowers, fruit trees, hedges, stone paths, ponds, lakes and streams. If you want to enjoy a romantic afternoon and take a journey through the different landscapes of the world, this is the perfect place to do it.
Dinner with sea views and a walk along the beach
The smell of saltpetre mixed with that of the embers of the boats where the ‘espetos’ are cooked. In the background, the sound of the waves, the moonlight... Who needs more? One of the best ways to enjoy Valentine's Day in Málaga is by the sea. You can find a multitude of restaurants overlooking the sea, where you can enjoy a special dinner. Undoubtedly, the perfect setting to say goodbye to this day in an unforgettable evening for you and your partner.
These are just some of the many activities you can do on Valentine's Day in Málaga. But there are many other proposals for you to spend an unforgettable day with your partner and fall in love with the magic of the city.
