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.

This area provides a pleasant walk along the sea front. There are benches along the path and some palm trees which make it a nice area to sit. The promenade is also under a shaded area sheltering you from the intense sun. It’s a shame that along the sea front are plastic panels slightly obscuring the view.

You can walk around the area and have a look at the Puerto with its ships, as well as the Park which continues to the East. The atmosphere is quiet, and there's enough shade to survive the hot sun of Summer!
