This attraction is at its best in the Summer months when all the plants trees and shrubs are looking their loveliest It is hard to imagine that this wonderful area lies so close to the busy motorway. Once inside the Gardens you are in another world. This was once a private house where the owners travelled the world indulging their... More

We went in December and too little was in bloom to enjoy. I can imagine it could be wonderful. A couple of bits of advice the number 2 bus gets you close but you are left with a 20 minute walk which is not pretty perhaps in the summer they a have another bus. Secondly the food in the little...

Yes, there were some flowering shrubs but otherwise trees, many labelled and some obviously old. Plenty of walkways to the different areas and places to sit and rest. Some orchids were supposedly contained in a small greenhouse which could not be entered, and it was not the flowering season . We also enjoyed seeing the cactus and succulents section. The... More

Importantly, you must be ready with bus timetable beforehand so when you need to leave this place, you do not need to wait for so long as I did. There was special bus to get there but I failed to locate it, so I took public bus which stopped far away from this Jardin. I had to walk back to... More

As long as you aren't expecting a riot of colour you'll enjoy these woodlands; they are not really gardens. We particularly liked the cactii section, the lake, Casa Palacio, Mirador Historico, The Forest Route and Palm Avenue. Entrance is 5 Euros 20 which is probably fair; NB closed Mondays. We used the Green Line RED bus to get there. It... More

Well, it's not Kew but it's a pleasant enough place to spend a couple of hours ambling about in. Not too much to see in autumn, but it might be prettier in springtime.

The garden is of obvious importance, but not in any way spectacular. Really nice to wander around for couple of quiet hours, The real star is the Mirador at the top of the garden, a moorish dome with a beautiful reflecting pool, including terrapin, with a view across Malaga that is unrivalled

Don't miss out on visiting these gardens. It's about 8 euros in a taxi to get there from central Malaga. You can easily spend two or three hours there. It's cheap entry too - about 5 euros per adult. I loved it. Very scenic and serene. It's just lovely to wonder about aimlessly. There's a cafe bar there too which... More

After reading so much about this "botanical wonder" we decided to give it a go. It's been a hot last couple of weeks here in Malaga for the end of October so we packed a light lunch and a few drinks and headed for some "sophisticated arboreal delights " which according to my old friend Mr. Satnav should be a...
