Summer has already arrived in Malaga, have you thought about any plans to enjoy the good weather?. How about a bike tour?.
At Fast Monkey, we have all kinds of bicycles, electric, mountain, road and city bikes.
We have an idea to be able to enjoy the good weather and gastronomy in Málaga while you tour the city with your city bike for a ride. Discovering Málaga with a Bike Tour.
DISCOVERING THE GUADALHORCE RIVER´S MOUTH
Fast Monkey is located in Benalmádena Costa. Starting from our store, we reach the city centre along the entire coast, strolling along the Torremolinos promenade, which has a bike lane.
Once the walk is over, we cross the mouth of the Guadalhorce River, declared a natural partner in 1989. It has numerous lagoons and is also a space that has a high ornithological value since we can find numerous migratory birds.
PROMENADE ALONG THE SEA
When we finish this section, we will arrive at the Antonio Banderas promenade, going along the entire coast along the bike path, passing in front of the Parque del Oeste.
On this route, there are numerous beach bars where you can stop for a drink or a few beers in front of the sea, to be able to continue with our walk and reach the city centre at the end of the promenade.
ARRIVING AT THE CITY CENTER – SOHO
Once you arrive in the centre of Málaga, we invite you to visit Soho. This neighbourhood is in full growth, with numerous hotels and restaurants of very good quality. It is a good option to stop for a drink. We will also find murals on some building facades, the Contemporary Art Center and the Antonio Banderas Theater. These sites deserve to be visited!
THE CITY CENTER
Crossing Soho, we will arrive at the Plaza de la Marina. We can go up the well-known Calle Marqués de Larios, arriving at Plaza de La Merced. From here, we can take a road that goes up to the top of Gibralfaro along a track surrounded by fields, an ideal area to enjoy the natural environment in the middle of the city.
WHERE TO EAT AND SOME PLACES TO CONTINUE THE VISIT
Going down, we will take Calle Granada to go to the Theater. Right in front, we can enjoy some of the best known and best restaurants in the City; El Pimpi. You cannot finish this experience without visiting the winery and tasting the sweet wine.
Another magnificent place to taste the wines of Málaga is the Antigua Casa de Guardia, located on one of the main streets of Málaga; the Main Alameda.
And if you prefer to try dishes known as “tapas” and “montaditos” we recommend the Casa Lola restaurant, one of the best known in the city that has 3 restaurants.
Following the tourist visits, in the centre of Malaga, we find the Gibralfaro Castle and the Roman Theatre. Also located in the centre are the Picasso Museum, the Carmen Thyssen Museum and the Customs Palace, highly recommended visits.
ENDING THE ROUTE AT MUELLE UNO
Continuing our route, a good option to end the tour of Málaga would be to visit Muelle Uno, where you can get to know one of the most important ports in Spain and the Pompidou Center. Here we find a pleasant restaurant area to enjoy the sun in front of the port before beginning the return journey to Benalmádena.
