It's a beautiful place, put together in the early C20th by the people who lived in the big house. Lots of places to sit about in the dappled shade and endless opportunities for photos of plants and trees. A bamboo forest is a highlight. Nice cafe bar.

We decided to visit here and weren't disappointed. A peaceful oasis in a busy city. Well laid out and interesting plants and trees. Awkward to get to with a 10 minute walk from local bus. Tourist bus takes you there but at 2 hourly intervals.

The botanical gardens are on the outskirts of Malaga but easily accessible by bus (or taxi). We went mid week in May at about midday. It was not at all crowded. This botanical gardens is one of the best I have ever been (slightly outpaced by Singapore). It is extensive - the largest in Europe, and is maintained well. It... More

This wasn't up to Kew Gardens standards and I'm not surprised, as it was private until 1990. The planting schemes are eccentric and there are little touches of Disney that grate in a botanical setting. Signage is poor too. But, it's still a nice garden to visit for someone from northern Europe as so many exotic plants grow well in... More

. This was a disappointment to us, especially as we had to pay a stiff price to go by taxi. Luckily the (very infrequent - every 90 minutes) bus service took us back to the centre for just over 1 €. A disappointment because it was mainly greenery, not flowers. Even the famous archway shown on the publicity, covered with... More

On a hot day, it provides some good shade. Get past the unwelcoming woman in the ticket office and you can spend a pleasant couple of hours there. The people in the cafe are friendly and offer some good, reasonably priced food. If you have visited other botanical gardens, then do not expect too much. Not too much colour, lots... More

This traditional botanical garden was in private ownership until 1990 when Malaga council acquired it and opened it to the public in 1994. It is a lovely shady place to while away a couple of hours or more on the many paths through the gardens. There are little buildings dotted about and a modest but attractive summer retreat house, sadly... More

Was really looking forward to visiting these gardens , as a keen gardener and paid visits to other Gardens I found these to be in need of loads of TLC and weeding . Central areas were nice to walk around , but it lacks in good planting , colour and layout .. Given it was spring time (May) it was... More
