Whether you are visiting Malaga for a few days to enjoy the Mediterranean city, its culture, traditions, cuisine, nightlife – and of course – the beaches, or you stay “only” for a few hours while your cruise ship is docked at the port, you may be interested to know a little more about the Port of Malaga, offering interesting alternatives to enjoy your free time by the sea and within walking distance from the historic centre.

This ancient port of Phoenician origin, picturesquely situated in the bay of Malaga is currently the second Cruise Port of the Peninsula receiving the visit of the largest cruise lines in the world. Since Malaga provides not only a mild climate, sun and beaches, but also a rich cultural and architectural heritage and excellent cuisine, many companies have chosen the capital of the Costa del Sol as one of the favourite destinations for a cruise. The Cruises generally take routes through the Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands and the coast of northern Africa.

The Port of Malaga is ideally situated next to the heart of the city, the historical centre, the Plaza de la Marina, Alameda Park and the popular Calle Larios; thus you can combine perfectly a walk around the town and the port.

In the Port of Malaga in recent years have been created new urban spaces dedicated to leisure and cultural activities, greatly increasing its attractiveness for citizens and visitors.
