Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Age Range:
31-40

Customer Travel Tip: *TIP* worth walking out to neighbourhoods further out and pay local rates for food. Visit the Alcazaba and Gibralforro for excellent views of the city.

Liked: Size of the city, two or three days is more than ample here. Plus, the beaches are good. There are other beaches reachable by bus fairly near, i.e. Nerja. Visit the Gibralforo and Alcazaba - definitely worth it!

Disliked: The price and quality of food in the heart of the city is not that great, I think you have to pay a lot of money here for good food. I expected healthy tapas but really, everything is fried! I shouldn´t have left the U.K!. I lived in Northern Spain for two years and it´s my opinion that the food is much better quality up there, *TIP* worth walking out to neighbourhoods further out and pay local rates for food.
