Hola Peter

The most natural way to say "in summer" in Spanish (when we are talking generally) is "en verano" (no article), but using the article wouldn't be incorrect either: Siempre voy a Málaga en el verano.

We we tend to use the definite article is when we start being more specific, for example:

Fui a Málaga en el verano de 1998. 

I went to Málaga in the summer of 1998.

Saludos
