My son was driven to a bar by a lady taxi driver who told him that the bar was a great place. When he wanted to leave he was told that he couldn't as he had to pay 200 euros even though he had paid for his drinks. He refused the men attacked him and knocked him unconscious then dumped him in the street. Malaga safe? I don't think so.

I cannot believe that malaga has such a low index. Malaga is super safe, especially during the day, I don't understand this 77,50, should me much higher! Depends on the neighborhood of course but usually is pretty safe.

Just moved from Santa Cruz ca ,USA. Have visit in the past . Have always felt super safe especially at night.malaga is great, not just trying to paint a pretty pic of the city but coming from a city of 80 ,000 to a city of 500,000 can imagine the difference that it feels

My brother was mugged yesterday and his Rolex watch was snatched from his wrist by two thugs.

This is serious crime.

Puts me off of going to Malaga.
