A CRUISE BY THE COAST OF MALAGA


I recommend this adventure somewhere in the middle of your stay in Malaga because it is a wonderful moment to relax.

The view of the city in the background, the mountains, the water... oh, it looks beautiful!

Tickets can be purchased on the promenade or on the website HERE.


12,00 € 60´min

15,00 € 90´min

ALCAZABA


One of the most characteristic places of Málaga.

The name comes from the Arabic "al.-qasbah", meaning the citadel.

It was build in the years 756-780, it had a defensive function against pirates.

Inside the Alcazaba you will find courtyards, patios and gardens.

Entrance costs only 3.50€!

ROMAN THEATRE


Entrance to the theater is FREE.


Its poor condition is the result of the fact that the Moors used the Roman Theater as a quarry during the construction of the Alcazaba.

PICASSO MUSEUM


Pablo Picasso was born in this city, maybe that's why this museum made such a huge impression on me.

In the museum we can find over 230 work arts of his, which he created in the years 1892-1972.


The entrance ticket costs 9.50€.

PROMENADE


Malaga's promenade has an amazing atmosphere.

I definitely recommend a walk, a coffee break and just to give yourself a moment to enjoy the atmosphere created by the street musicians.

PLUS it is decorated with the interesting architectural designs.

PLAZA DE LA CONSTITUCION


Constitution Square, originally called the Old Market Square and later called Plaza De Las Cuatro Calles (Four Streets Square, today is a tightly built-up square with occasional attractions.

JARDINES DE PEDRO LUIS ALONSO


If you feel the floral aroma in the air, it means that you are close!


The gardens are located next to the town hall building.

You can find here mainly tangerine and orange trees and various species of roses.

MIMMA (INTERACTIVE MUSIC MUSEUM)


A great attraction not only for children but adults aswell!

A big collection of musical instruments from all corners of the world.

Divided into string instruments, wind instruments, etc.

However, the greatest fun is the part of the museum where you can try it yourself!


The ticket costs 5€ per adult, unless you have purchased the ticket mentioned above - Hop-on hop-off - in which it is included.

LA MALAGUETA BEACH


The artificial Costa del Sol beach, located by the Muelle Uno, attracts tourists with its characteristic sand sculpture "Malagueta".

For me, apart from taking a photo in front of the "Malagueta" it was the perfect place for lunch and relaxation (Yes, I like to relax! 😂)

You will find many bars and restaurants here.

THE LIGHTHOUSE


"La Farola" beautifully decorates the coast of Malaga.

For me, lighthouses themselves are extraordinary and whenever I have the opportunity to see one while traveling, I use this opportunity!

You can see it up close while walking along the promenade.
