Recently visited the Jardin Botanico and was blown away. It's massive and has such a great variety of plants, vegitation and features. You could easily spend all day there with all the different tracks/routes. It's only 5 Euros entry as well and there is a regular bus from Malaga centre that is only 1.30 Euros each way and stops directly... More

Easier to get to if you don't ask the Tourist Board(that covers most things) Get on the small HOHO red bus. It's final stop is the Botanical Gardens. Pensioners should ask for a senior ticket- they don't assume(which irritated a young woman who paid full fare for her, obviously elderly,female companion) It is a quiet haven on the edge of... More

I just love this beautiful park just north of Malaga. It's easy to find and there are buses if you don't have the car. The hop on/hop off bus also stops outside. It's relatively easy to walk around and a wealth of trees and plants makes for a very pleasant stroll. The quietness makes it unique and it's wonderful to... More

Arrived via cheap bus from the city centre, didn't mind the walk to the gardens from the bus stop but it would have been nice to have had pavement! Reasonable entry fee of €3.40 for the reduced student rate. Enjoyable but unspectacular walk around the grounds (took the forest route), the highlight being the view from the top. Moroccan meatballs... More

This is a wonderful paradise just outside the city center. Get there by bus. Nice to visit on a really hot day as there is so much shade, trees, etc.

Well worth the bus trip out of town. There is an outdoor cafe restaurant and you can sit surrounded by gorgeous trees with a drink listening to the hundreds of birds. So peaceful and a relaxing break away from the city

So peaceful and relaxing. At times, it felt as if we were wandering through a jungle miles from anywhere! Highly recommended if you love nature, or simply wish to escape the heat or busy city streets. If you cannot get a bus direct to the door, don't be put off by 15-minute walk. The gardens are not particularly well sign-posted,... More

An interesting stroll in lovely shady grounds with unexpected highlights. Very few visiting when we were there (mid May '14) so very relaxed. Lunch in the small café was exceptional, all home cooked and very tasty with friendly service. Worth the Euro5 entry fee just to have access to lunch!

We visited on a Sunday by taking the Malaga Tour bus for 1.30 Euro each way. Definitely a lovely 1hr30 walk around some green space. Some beautiful trees and planting.

Expected a visit of around 2 - 3 hours but stayed all day as there was so much to see and enjoy. Beautiful well kept and very interesting with something different around every corner. Value for money on entrance fee and would of expected to pay a lot more also very reasonably priced delicious food in pleasant surroundings. This garden... More
