Malaga used to be known among holidaymakers for three things: sun, sea and surf - bedrocks of the city's reputation as a gateway to the Costa del Sol. But that's only half the picture.
Of course, you can still get cheap holidays to Malaga, all-inclusive or not - it's a great place to look for deals for family package holidays in 2020.
It is often the first stop on a journey down the coast and the usual Andalusian draws of the beach and sunshine remain.
Getting lost around the labyrinthine cobbled streets of the charming Old Town has always been a great way to spend a day away from the heat of the beach.
After 15 years of investment, lobbying and campaigning, Malaga is starting to reinvent itself. Sophistication is replacing the city's former shabby image, thanks primarily to a long overdue drive to promote the legacy of one of its most famous sons, Pablo Picasso, who is now the subject of a modern museum that's become the centre of cultural life in Malaga.
There's more. Until 2020, the port city is hosting the first international outpost of Paris's Centre Pompidou - already affectionately dubbed 'Pop up Pompidou' - and has invited the prestigious Russian State Museum in Saint Petersburg to open a sister museum in the town.
It's not all about museums. Surrounded by hills with magnificent views of the coastline, many people holiday in Malaga and use it as a base to see sights such as the impressive Gibralfaro castle.
Beyond that lies the Sierra Nevada, one of Spain's most mountainous regions. It offers a rich mix of outdoor pursuits that range from mountain biking to walking, including one of the world's scariest hikes, the Caminito del Rey trail, which curls along a steep gorge.
