Activities & Excursions - Malaga, Spain  


Special Activities

Social & Sporting Activities The center organizes parties, excursions, and a variety of after class activities and social events. These activities offer the student an excellent opportunity to practice Spanish, to get to know fellow students and members of the staff, to utterly enjoy a Spanish evening around a drink or a "paella" in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

Among the sports that you can easily practice while at the school include: Golf; Horseback riding; soccer; tennis and windsurfing.

The school facilities include 2 large sun terraces for relaxation and for doing homework in the open air. One of these is by the side of the swimming pool. For those who prefer to sun-bathe on the beach, this is only 15 minutes walk away.

At least once a week there is an evening reserved for the showing of a film or a filmed version of a theater piece. These showings are preceded by a short introduction and background information, and followed by discussion.

Excursions During the course the school organizes several outings, or will accompany the students to museums, historic monuments, and other places of interest, such as Granada, Seville, Cordoba. All excursions and activities are subject to student's interests and are at additional cost.

* Granada: the principle objective of this excursion is to visit the Alhambra, the great Moorish fortress and palace overlooking the city of Granada. This is one of the great architectural triumphs of the eight hundred years of occupation of Andalucia by the Moors from north Africa.

* Sevilla: the Andalucian capital has a wealth of monumental architecture and places of interest. We visit the Cathedral, the Giralda, los Reales Alcazares, the Plaza de España and the barrio Santa Cruz.

* Córdoba: a beautiful walled-city with the “Mezquita” - part Arabic mosque and part Christian cathedral - at its heart. You can only begin to imagine the historical and culture interest of this city when you know that in the 10th century it was a great university city with libraries and street lighting in the centre!


With its Mediterranean climate Málaga is the ideal place for the sports enthusiast. Our activities department can provide information about the following sports and, in some cases, help you to take advantage of special rates:

Golf and golf lessons:
the Costa del Sol has Europe’s number one concentration of golf courses with some 40 courses within half an hour to a couple of hours by car. Some of these are championship level and some more suited to the beginner or intermediate player. We can provide you with information and also help to arrange lessons with a “golf pro” at one of the courses.

Tennis, paddle tennis, etc.:
a short taxi-ride up hill from Malaca Instituto brings you to the Club Deportivo Calderón. Malaca Instituto is a member of this club which has outstanding facilities for tennis (hard and clay court) and paddle. This club has been a Davis Cup venue and our membership means you can play at highly reduced rates.

Aerobics, martial arts, keep fit:
again you can benefit from our membership of Club Deportivo Calderón to participate at reduced rates in these activities.

Hill walking:
just half an hour by car from the centre of Málaga you are in the Montes of Málaga where you can walk for hours through forests and along trails in the National Park.

the promenade that stretches for over 7 km. from the centre of Málaga, past the Cerrado de Calderón area where Malaca Instituto is located, and continuing eastwards, creates an enticing track for the jogging enthusiast. In many parts there is also a special compacted-sand track on the beach itself.

Shorter walks:
just behind the school a public park has been developed in an extensive area of woodland which gives the opportunity for taking very pleasant strolls and has some spectacular sea views.

Swimming, table tennis, dance and pool can all be practised in the school itself.


Rent-a-car: for both golf and hill-walking you will need your own transport and might well want to take advantage of our hire car rates.
