El Palo Malaga is located east of the city center along the coastline. Originally a fishing village, El Palo has managed to retain its traditional charm and character despite the growth and development of the town.
The district is known for its long promenade (Paseo Marítimo) and beaches, such as Playa de El Palo and Playa de Las Acacias, which are popular with locals and tourists alike. Along the promenade you will find plenty of chiringuitos (beach bars) where you can enjoy fresh seafood and traditional dishes, such as espetos de sardinas (sardines grilled on a skewer over an open fire).
In El Palo you will also find local markets, shops and an authentic atmosphere that gives you a good idea of daily life in Málaga. The district offers a more relaxed and peaceful environment compared to the busy city centre, making it an attractive place for those looking for a more authentic experience on the Costa del Sol.
The connection to Málaga city centre is good, with regular bus services and a relatively short drive. This makes El Palo an ideal location to stay if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city center but still have easy access to the main attractions.
