We went there many times during our 2 weeks staying in Malaga. We hired also some bike-cars for children which they enjoyed so much. During Xmas vacations, the had many attractions. Just the shops and places to eat and drink didn't seem very nice to us. Above, there were some jumping play grounds which were very expensive. 5 min jumping... More

This well-presented restaurant overlooks the large area of water that is almost too big to call a harbour. There for a couple of beers and light lunch, our tapas were enjoyable and inexpensive. The staff were friendly but as with everywhere in Malaga, spoke poor English. Our taxi driver from the airport spoke not one word! Would we come back... More

We loved walking down this promenade on our recent trip to Malaga. There were wonderful Artisans selling creative items along the way on the weekend. The views of the lit up Gibralfaro castle and Alcazaba at night are magnificent.

Good for a walk beside the port during a sunny day. I passed it on my way to the Pompidou museum. Nice area.

Great area with the wonderful moden architecture that Spain after does so well. The palm trees give a nice backdrop to the port and separates the traffic along the main road. Shaded but light with see-through panels on the sea side keeps out any wind without spoiling the view.

When you arrive by cruise ship, as we did, one of the first things you see is the Palmer de Sorpresas. The palm trees are nice and remind us of Elche, Spain. The harbor views are very nice. The area is clean, well maintained and filled with locals and visitors out for a stroll or just relaxing with a drink.... More

Probably the loveliest place in the Port of Malaga. It is on the Muelles Dos, and a must visit place in Malaga. Even on a hot sunny day, the Paseo de la Pergola provides you with enough shade, the enjoy the walk, having the palm trees on one side and the sea on the other. It is a pity, that... More

Pleasant spot overlooking the Marina. Plenty of seating and a restaurant to have a coffee and watch the ferries loading and the world go by.

This place is always full of people and live, the area is lovely and the views at night are Amazing, you have loots of shops and restaurants around and at the end you have the Malagueta beach that is very good, is a perfect place for a lovely walk.
