If you feel to take a relaxing stroll this garden is offers a wide variety of plants and trees along with a view over Málaga port and Cathedral. Very nice place to take some photos with splendid surroundings.

This is a lovely, shady and interesting botanical garden which is perfect to stroll around for a few hours. It is a 15 minute drive away from Malaga Airport and a perfect place to unwind before a flight home. There is a lovely outdoor café in the grounds which serves delicious homemade food (we had quiche and salad and a... More

Did this as part of the hop on/hop off sightseeing tours. The area is huge, the signage was poor, and there was not enough time to cover it and get back keep to the bus schedules. What we looked at was interesting but we expected more blooming flowers, more color. Quite honestly, this place could take 2 days to go... More

We visited on the day of "puertas abiertas" and arrived 9.30am. Had a lovely walk and than took a trip in electric bus "the world in 80 trees". Very nice and interesting to see the different vegetation. When it got busy and hot...we went home. Excellent day out.

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
