Go for a walk around the marina and will come to La Farola, the lighthouse. Carry on around and you will reach a beach and a lovely promenade.

This is a small lighthouse right on the Cruise ship pier. It is a very nice walk, surrounded on one side with high end restaurants and the small boat harbour on the other side.

The Farola of Malaga is a lighthouse that has a long history. It is one of the best landmarks and shows where the port is. One can see it if one goes to Muelle Uno.

it's just nice to walk to the Farola. Look around, see the ships, the fish in the clear water. We did enjoy it.

We used this beautiful lighthouse as a landmark as we traveled around the city. It stands out all around the city. This was our stop to get back to the cruise port and our ship when we were riding the HOHO.
