Best Places to work from in Málaga, Spain

Are you a digital nomad or need to get some work done on your vacation, and wondering where to work from in Málaga? Here are the best places to work from in Málaga, Spain.

Málaga is one of my favorite places in Spain. It is not only a great destination for your next vacation but also a fantastic city to live in for some time.

As you might know, I am working online. So one criterion when choosing a place to stay for more than just a few days is a good internet connection + a variety of great cafes to work from.

Protect your trip: With all our travel experience, we highly recommend you hit the road with travel insurance! SafetyWing offers flexible & reliable Digital Nomads Travel Medical Insurance at just a third of the price of similar competitor plans.

As I am in the same boat as you, I know the struggle to find quiet cafes with a fast internet connection, enough power outlets, good coffee, and great service that allow you to stay there for a few hours to work on your laptop.

Best Places to work from in Málaga, Spain

1. Recyclo Bike Café

Recyclo is a nicely decorated café at Plaza Enrique García-Herrera in the center and one of my favorite places to work in Málaga.

The café has tables inside and outside, with comfortable chairs and power outlets. The wifi is strong, and the service is outstanding.

Recyclo Bike Café is open throughout the day, in contrast to most other places that close for a siesta in the afternoon. However, it usually gets quite busy for lunchtime, so I recommend you work here before or after lunch.

Talking about food, Recyclo actually offers a great variety of good food for very reasonable prices. After working all morning long, you might want to change to a table outside to enjoy the sun with a tasty lunch.

Recyclo Bike Café offers a breakfast special for three Euros that includes a coffee, a small freshly squeezed orange juice, and a toasted bread roll with a choice of different toppings, like cheese&tomato or cheese&ham.

Recyclo also offers a daily menu from 01:30 PM (Menú del día) for seven Euros. The menu includes a veggie starter, a main course (veggie or fish – meat), bread, homemade lemonade, and a piece of fruit.
