There’s nothing like planning a trip to sultry Spain to lift the Monday blues. So today, on supposedly the saddest day of the year, check out this Blue Monday Malaga break that will see you enjoy azure skies, turquoise waters and even an entire smurf-shade village!

Blue Monday Malaga Break

With this deal from Expedia, you’ll be staying the ultra-charming Malaga Lodge Guesthouse in the city centre. Set in a charming guesthouse, you’ll love sitting on the Andalusian patio and soaking up the sun. You can enjoy breakfast in the morning and hit the town. Nearby sights include the Roman Theatre, the Alcazaba and the Santuario de la Victoria Church.

Malaga is full of plenty of great highlights, with plenty of medieval and Moorish landmarks, bars and of course the beach! I also suggest taking a trip to the village of Juzcar! This village, reachable by a two-hour bus or car journey from Malaga, was painted smurf-blue in 2011 in anticipation for the Smurfs film premiere and the funky colour remains! It’s a great place to go hiking or enjoy some delicious wine.
