Christmas in Malaga

This time of year there is always a magic in the air as the cool winter nights are filled with lights, excited shoppers and the delightful aromas of festive street food, so why not give yourself the unforgettable experience of a Christmas and New Year abroad. Though if you can’t quite make it for the 25th and 31st this year, remember that although normally known as a summer destination famous for its beautiful beaches, Benalmadena is a great place to visit all year round with a temperate climate and host of festive things to do and see on the Costa del Sol. So, although we regret to remind you that the Hotel MAC Puerto Marina will be closed until the 1st of February 2019, to undergo some improvements and changes, we guarantee to make your future holiday in Benalmadena that much better whether throughout the year or during the next festive season. Booking your next holiday will be something to look forward to for Christmas and a wish you can fulfil this New Year.

Benalmadena is located just 11 miles from the major city of Malaga meaning that a shopping trip into this region’s metropolis is a must. The place to start is without a doubt Calle Larios (Larios Street), here is not only where you will find all your biggest high street chains offering the best chance to find that special gift, but also some of the city’s most magnificent Christmas light installations which were switched on a just a matter of days ago. So take a turn around the city and enjoy Malaga’s most beautiful streets illuminated during this magical time of year.

As well as singing carols on Christmas Eve and attending “La Misa Del Gallo” (Midnight Mass) one thing that you cannot miss during your holiday is the traditional Spanish treats that fill the stores this time of year. These small sweet treats come in a few different forms, such as Turron (made from honey and almonds) and polvorones (made from flour, butter and sugar) are usually eaten as a dessert to the main Christmas dinner but they also make a great souvenir from Malaga.

Although you may feel a little down when Christmas ends, your New Year’s plans will offer something else to look forward to with MAC Hotels being a great place to spend your New Year’s Eve or Nochevieja as it is called here. First of all a good traditional dinner is required in the company of all those who mean the most to you. After a satisfyingly delicious meal, the party can really get started in the city’s main squares, with crowds of revellers congregating and making sure they are carrying 12 grapes, which are a key tradition here in Spain. As the clock strikes midnight each grape must be consumed on each chime of the clock in order to bring good luck all year round.

Start the new year in the right way and get ready to experience all the major updates and changes that are taking place at our hotel in Benalmadena and enjoy all the luxuries including our brand new Spa Facilities and much more at this 4-star hotel. So whatever time of year you are celebrating, we know you will enjoy an unforgettable experience here in Benalmadena and especially with MAC Hotels.
