As an non-lighthouse fan, I’m not interested to see a lighthouse. But it’s something you have to see when you are in Malaga.

This beautiful lighthouse stood out in the lovely harbour area of Malaga. We were travelling on the Tui Marella. spirit cruise ship and had a wander around the port. As we departed this landmark shone on the distance and welcomed us back on our return.

The lighthouse is set in a prominent position (as you would expect) and is a real landmark if you're walking down the strip where the trendy modern restaurants are all located.

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.

It's a dominant view in the harbour, so you'll automatically end up walking there. When the sun shines, the stark contrast between the white and blue skies is amazing and worth the trip.
