Shopping in the province of Malaga
Who doesn’t like shopping? If you love shopping and you are thinking of visiting Malaga or you live there, this is your post. Malaga is one of the cities with more shopping malls in Spain and is home to the best brands in the world.
Although it is true that online shopping is currently very fashionable, true shopping lovers know that it is not the same as doing it physically. Yes, it’s very convenient to order at Zara or Amazon while having a coffee on your couch at home, but nothing like being able to try on the clothes yourself, touch the products and see the measurements in person. On the internet everything looks very nice and the clothes look good on everyone, but then come the regrets when we get the big Shein pants. So let’s not lose the good habits and come with us to a day of shopping in the province of Malaga.
The beauty of Malaga is that the stores are intermingled with the gastronomy and monuments. You can go shopping on Calle Larios, have a tapas of Iberian coquetas de iberico with melon at the
Pez Wanda restaurant
the Thyssen Museum and then return to the hunt for fashion.
If you are thinking about shopping in Malaga and don’t know where to go, you are in the right place. Read on and join us for a tour of the best places to go shopping in the province.
Shopping centers in Málaga
In the capital city itself, we can already find several shopping malls. In addition to shopping, these establishments offer a wide range of activities, such as cinema, playgrounds, terraces, restaurants, go-karting, etc… So a day of shopping can also become a day with the family or a get-together with friends.
If you are looking for a place where you can not only shop, but also have a good time with your family and friends, your place is the Miramar shopping center, located in Fuengirola. It has a wide range of stores, cinema and also on the terrace there is a playground with trampolines, karting, and activities where children will have a great time. The stores you can find here are Zara, Bershka, Pull and Beard, Stradivarius, Primark, Carrefour,…
On the other hand, if you are looking for more exclusive stores, you should go to La Cañada Shopping, in Marbella. This mall houses the best brands, such as GUESS, Apple, Massimo Dutti, MAC, Lacoste… Shopping at La Cañada is like shopping on Fifth Avenue, but in a ”Marbella lady” version.
If you are in Malaga and do not feel like moving. Don’t worry! We have a solution for everything. In the same city you have the Larios shopping center, Vialia and Muelle Uno. These three are very similar to the Miramar in Fuengirola, that is to say, the stores are very similar, but they do not have as many activities as the one in Fuengirola. Ah! By the way, if you decide to go to Muelle Uno, you have a mandatory stop at the
and try our delicious rice and paella dishes.
Stores in Málaga
Shopping malls can be stressful and are not for everyone, but that’s okay, you can also go shopping in the streets of Malaga, and you will also discover local stores that you won’t see in a mall.
The best place to go shopping outdoors is undoubtedly the famous Marques de Larios Street. This street is lined with stores of all kinds, from thrift stores to Victoria Secret, Bershka or Pull and Beard. Also while you go from store to store you can admire its beautiful architecture and the Cathedral of Malaga.
Parallel to Calle Larios we find Calle Nueva, very similar to the previous one, although narrower, also has a wide range of stores of all kinds.
If you are a fan of vintage and second hand clothes, in Malaga you will also find several places to go.
No doubt if you like second hand clothes you must go to Flamingo, in this place you will discover cool clothes, and in perfect condition. It’s more focused on vintage style, so if you’re looking for a colorful bomber jacket you know where to go. And if the price is by weight, so much the better!
On the other hand we find Mosaic, my favorite. Here you will see clothes of all kinds, and all brands, from vintage to ”motomami” jackets. The best thing is the price, many days they put all the clothes at 3, 2, and 1 euros. Imagine buying a pair of Balenciaga for 1 euro, crazy.
Also scattered throughout the province you can find thousands of flea markets. where there are products of all kinds, you will discover things you didn’t even know existed. The Saturday morning flea market in Fuengirola is very popular in this area.
