We are sure you have noticed the many rooftop terrace bars in the city, they are hard to miss! When it’s 30 degrees outside and you are looking for somewhere to chill and soak up the atmosphere then this is your best option! The bonus is that you can also get a get a great tan. The best time to hit the rooftop terrace bars in Malaga is during the evening when you can catch a glimpse of the breathtaking sunset! This can be best enjoyed with a cocktail or a Tinto de Verano in hand. When in Malaga, you need to explore the many rooftops as they are an unmissable experience. For this reason we have made a list of our favorite rooftops for you! Have fun reading and if you have your favourite rooftop which is not on the list, please contact us as we would be more than happy to explore it!

If you are a budding English teacher currently completing your Trinity CertTESOL course in Malaga then it is important to also have some down time. For this reason we urge you to at least treat yourself to a rooftop drink at the weekend. It would be rude not to!


Hotel AC Malaga Palacio

So to start off our Malaga city rooftop terrace tour we headed to this gem! This is one of our personal favorites (based on Malaga views) and is located on the roof of the exquisite Hotel AC Malaga Palacio. The views are spectacular as you can see right across the historic centre, out to the ocean and even up to the mountains! The rooftop is not that big due to the swimming pool in the middle. However there is more than enough space for you to have a drink with friends and take in the beautiful scenery. The rooftop bar is located on the 16th floor of the hotel (so not for the faint hearted). We can assure you of one thing…once on the rooftop, it is worth it! During the week you can visit it for free, at the weekends you have to pay €8 rink inc. (due to it now being a popular tourist attraction). This is the only rooftop terrace that opens at noon in Malaga so the perfect afternoon plan 🙂

BatikAlcazaba Hostel Malaga

This rooftop is another one of our personal favorites and is neat to the famous Plaza de la Merced and boasts some absolutely beautiful views of the Alcazaba castle. This rooftop is split over 2 levels and gets pretty crowded at night. It is a popular starting point for a night on the town due to the excellent cocktails (especially the Caipirinha)!

This rooftop tends to attract a really nice mix of backpackers as well as locals.
It’s also in the middle of the center, so after a fun night at the rooftop you can hit the nearby clubs and bars!

San Juan Terrace – Malaga Premium Hotel

This is one of the newest terraces of Malaga and it is a real winner in our eyes! This terrace attracts a smart, corporate crowd and is popular for after work drinks! This would be a great place to head to after a hard days work on your TEFL course in Malaga. Although you do not have ocean views from this rooftop, you do have the cathedral and the spectacular spire of the San Juan Church towering over you which is a great backdrop for the setting evening sun! The cocktails and Sangria in particular here are exceptional! If you fancy a good night out with friends or want to really take in the early evening Spanish atmosphere then you should definitely start here – it will not disappoint!

The name of this rooftop terrace comes from the tower Inglesia San Juan that is located just next to the hotel itself, you can almost touch the tower it is that close. The rooftop is located on the fifth floor of the boutique hotel, in Malaga city center.
