Malaga, the city with positive vibes

Why you won’t regret moving to Malaga


The mild climate of Malaga means that you can enjoy being outdoors all year round. No more endless months spent indoors due to persistent rain and cold during autumn and winter. Instead, you can have lovely meals on the terrace even in November. Weekend getaways with your family or loved ones, enjoying the beautiful surroundings without worrying about the weather. You can leave your umbrella at home.

Good schools

Malaga offers excellent Spanish and international schools, outstanding sports facilities, and an extensive university campus. Besides many British schools, you will find French, German, Russian and a number of Scandinavian schools also. It is a great choice for education, both for children and adults. If your Spanish isn't quite fluent yet, there are also many language schools in the city catering to help complete beginners and advanced learners. This way, you'll feel at home in the city and grasp the language in no time.

An international vibe

While many newcomers aspire to fully integrate into Spanish life, having a vibrant expat community also helps you settle quickly in Malaga. There are plenty of expats in Malaga, many of whom have moved here to start a new life in the sun, just like you. Meeting people is not a problem, with numerous activities for expats to participate in.
