Andalusia in summer is one of my favorite places in Spain. Fried fish, sun all day, summer nights without a jacket, Flamenco guitar, and spending hours on the streets are all iconic images of Andalusia for me.
Andalusia has great weather any time of the year. The bad thing is that sometimes, this great weather turns into “mucho caló.”
Some places in Andalusia get too hot in summer. Hey, I’ve got you covered! There’s no reason to feel like a sardine on a spit during this vacation.
In this post, I will tell you all about the best spots for getting lost in Andalusia.
The 8 Best Places To Get Lost In Andalusia This Summer
The city of Chiclana de la Frontera offers many attractions to make it one of the most desirable places to visit this summer.
Chiclana can boast of having one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain, the Playa de la Barrosa. If you like walking, sunbathing on long beaches, and lying on the beach without crowds of people, Barrosa is the right destination.
If you like surfing, windsurfing, and all kinds of water sports that can be practiced on the beach, Tarifa will be your downfall.
In addition, the good vibes in Tarifa are brutal, and the sunsets from the southernmost place in Europe are amazing.
Playa Bolonia is my favorite beach in Tarifa, an extensive sandy beach of golden sand and virgin.
But I warn you to wear a hat because it is always windy there “at any moment, you are going to fly away.” Well, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit; you know that everything sticks from the Andalusians.

3. Malaga city
Undoubtedly, one of the best cities in Andalusia in summer is Malaga. A good reason is the gastronomy of Malaga. Sardine skewers are a delicacy and a pleasure.
Another strong point of Malaga is its great cultural offer. Malaga has excellent museums such as the Carmen Thyssen Museum, the Pompidou Center Malaga, and Picasso Museum.
Also, if you go to Malaga in summer, don’t forget to plan your days to go to the Malaga Fair, one of the best festivals in Spain.
Feria de Málaga = Cartojal + full of party + day fair (squared) + night fair.
I don’t even want to know the final result!
Warning for sailors! Be careful with the sweet wine Cartojal, the nail that mysteriously leaves in the head the next day can be very hard. He who warns is not a traitor.

4. Cabo de Gata Natural Park
The Natural Park of Cabo de Gata is your summer resort if you are looking for a bit of disconnection in the middle of nature. You can relax and enjoy the beach between film landscapes here.
Furthermore, there are many activities and plans available for all ages in this area.
One of the important places in this area is the Playa de los Muertos. Probably one of the most amazing beaches you will ever see in your life.
This whole area is full of coves and beaches that will blow your mind. In case you don’t know, Cabo de Gata is a true paradise.

Nerja is my right eye. Considered one of the most beautiful villages of Malaga and all Andalusia, it is a must for those of you who, as children, swallowed with popcorn each and every one of the chapters of the series “Verano Azul.”
If you are a fan of the series, you can still see Tito from Verano Azul in the streets of Nerja. He is in charge of giving guided tours in the center and also in the Cave of Nerja.
This last one is one of the most touristic places in Andalucia, and it is a must to visit if you are on vacation in the area.
Also, very close to Nerja is Maro, one of the best areas of the Andalusian coast to take a dip and practice water sports.

6. Granada and its tapas
Granada is my favorite city in Spain. Maybe visiting it in the middle of summer is not the best option. However, I like it so much that I would head there right now, even if it is a bit hot during the day.
Besides the usual visit to the Alhambra and enjoying the views from the Mirador de San Nicolas, you can’t forget the wonderful and blessed tapas of Granada.
In case you don’t know what the party is all about, I’ll tell you in an instant: for every drink you have, you get a free tapa. The free stuff tastes better.
Granada is one of the best places to go for tapas in Spain. You don’t want to miss it, do you?

Visit cool villages like Arcos de la Frontera, Medina Sidonia, Ubrique, Olvera, Ronda, etc. It is a quiet, picturesque, and unique road trip.

The capital of the Costa del Sol is still one of the best places in Andalusia to spend the summer.
Far from having that image of waste and luxury, Marbella offers tourists many more possibilities and a flirtatious historical center. Marbella is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful towns in Malaga.
The Plaza de los Naranjos is the cutest place in the whole town. And strolling through Puerto Banus is cool.
The bad thing about the walk is the depression you will get when you see all the moored yachts here. You are satisfied with a simple little boat, aren’t you?
