Are you thinking about doing your Erasmus year in Malaga?
Or you’re not so sure about your decision? Well, don’t worry about it, because I’ll give you some reasons why you should do it without thinking about it a lot, and maybe at the end I could persuade you. If you will do your Erasmus in Malaga, you will never forget this experience!
On the Map
Malaga is a city in the South of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, also known as the 6th most populated city in Spain.
It is located on the coast at the western end of Mediterranean Sea and in the South of Iberian Peninsula.
Birthplace of Pablo Ruiz Picasso and Antonio Banderas, isn’t it cool?!
Malaga Is a city full of museums, you can find at least 37 different ones! So if you really like these vibes, you will love it and will never get bored. Some of them are even free to entry; I’ll leave you a link down here so you can have a look and find the one that you like the most.
The people from Malaga are very friendly so don’t worry, you will always feel welcome in this place.
In addition, they love to party! So if you’re the kind of person who loves to go out this is the perfect place! You can find clubs and bars all over the city centre, and I promise you, you will always feel welcome, and if you are an Erasmus student most of the times you’ll get discounts or special prices on your drinks.
As I said before, Malaga is a city located in the south coast of Spain, and its people call it “The Sun Coast” because they have a great weather most of the time, and their beaches where you can go out and take the sun, have a picnic with your friends, play volleyball, enjoy the sea or just the wonderful sunset while you’re reading a book or listening to the waves (I know it sounds a bit cheesy but I used to love it, it always gave me a calm feeling)
Don’t you think it sounds great?!
Sun and hot weather most time of the year, it gets a bit colder and windy in the winter, but I’im sure you’ll have a great summer!
O.M.G, I have to say that I’ve found fantastic places to eat, no matter if it is for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert or just a simply snack, you’ll find a great variety of restaurants for any occasion and they are not expensive.
But obviously, you’re in Spain! “Tapas” is what you’ll find the most and everywhere, and of course Churros!!, if you want me to recommend you some places, just send me a message and I’ll let you know, don’t you worry I will post about it soon too.
Are they really loads of Erasmus students in Malaga?
Well, let me tell you that the answer is YES, on the second semester of the year (September- January) you can find at least 500 Erasmus students! And in the first semester of the year (February – June) around 300 students, not bad, isn’t it?
What I’m trying to say is that you’ll always find any other student who’s doing its year abroad like you, so, don’t get scared! Plus, there are special meetings and groups where you can meet other students that are doing the same as you, so you can find your first friends and maybe they will turn into your best mates forever. Haha
If you are visiting Malaga no matter if it’s for holidays or an internship or you’re starting your Erasmus, I’ll leave you a bucket list that I’ve made for you, just 18 things you can do and can’t miss while you’re in this wonderful place.
