The world of work has seen some dramatic
changes over the last decade. Now that it’s more than possible to work from
anywhere, more people than ever are taking the opportunity to do just that.
Being a digital nomad means having the freedom that traditional work roles
deemed impossible. Now that employees and freelancers can work from just about
anywhere on the planet with an internet connection and a laptop, it’s no
surprise that becoming a digital nomad is more popular than ever. One of the
most popular destinations for those nomads is Malaga. Idyllic scenery and
enough coffee shops to ensure you never run out of wifi are just two of the
reasons why the city of Malaga in the Costa Del Sol is so popular.
Where to Stay
While many digital nomads traverse the globe
in a vehicle that they can travel, sleep, and cook in, it’s just as popular to
bounce from hotel to hostel to Airbnb. One of the reasons why Malaga is
becoming such a popular destination for digital nomads is because of the wide range of accommodation options. Just as luxurious as it is affordable, head to the Soho area to find
the best bargains. Be wary of extra charges that you’ll have to pay before you
hand back the keys at the end of your stay. Hostels can usually be the best
option if the cost is a worry, and you’ll avoid those unexpected fees as well.
Where to Work
When it comes to working in Malaga, you
can get straight to business armed with nothing more than your laptop and a
map. Head to one of the cafes or coffee shops in the
centre of the city and you’ll have all of the wifi and snacks that you’ll ever
need. Be aware that some cafes do not let you use their power outlets, so check
before you start plugging yourself in. You’ll also find the usual suspects like
Starbucks and Costa if you’re looking for something recognizable. There are
also co-working office spaces, with the best one definitely being The Living Room. It is highly recommended that you book a desk here for however long
you spend in Malaga.
The best thing about being a digital
nomad is that once you’re done with work you’re already on holiday. That means
it’s worth giving some thought to getting out and about in Malaga. Bike tours
of Malaga itself are very popular, but you should also consider going a little
further out. Look at an affordable car rental in Malaga and you suddenly have the freedom to go and check out nearby Madrid.
A little further up the coast is Gibraltar, with a never-ending number of
stunning beaches throughout the drive. If you’re feeling particularly
adventurous, you could even drive to Algeciras and jump on the ferry for a day
or two to North Africa.
There are many reasons why being a
digital nomad is growing so quickly in popularity. If your job means that you
can work from anywhere, why stick to the home office or the living room? Get
out into the world, and make sure that Malaga is near the top of destinations
that you should be working and playing in.
