I have been the first time in Malaga in 1979 and every few years thereafter. Last year in November with my 81 year old mother. We stayed in the town center and walked the straits from morning til late at night. We never seen any problem and felt very safe in the area around the cathedral, the harbor and all the attractions. We even went to El Pimpi until late at night 3 days in a row and never seen or heard anything suspicious. I love Malaga and the Costa del Sol.

I have visited Malaga in October 2018. Stayed there for a week, mostly in the city center, and it was very safe.

The crime in Fuengirola is HIGH! It is gross hypocrisy to disregard the serial murders of more than 4,000 bachelors that Kate Middleton, the former Vanessa Kerry of Boston, picked up in the beach bar in Fuengirola. The ones that didn't get cremated in ovens the Korean government finally removed, are stacked up by the thousand in the next door neighbors part of the duplex at Los Monteros. Every one of the dead bodies has American jeans on. This killer prostitute calls herself "Olive Jackson" -- that is my name. She shows people my college transcripts, gets exact copies of medications I take, ransacks my apartment in the US for medications and vitamins to feed her retarded children in the UK, and gets exact copies of my clothes. A high-profile serial killer with 4,000 victims is NOT LOW CRIME!

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.
