Wow, what a wonderful oasis in the city. A beautiful, 1 km long park giving really welcome shade and really interesting mini gardens all the way along, with specimens well labelled. We used it every time we wanted to get along this area, much nicer than just walking alongside the road.

The Palmeral de las Sorpresas is a wonderful place to walk because it is a beautiful park and on one side one can see the sea at the port. The park is very well maintained and is very clean and there are many benches where one can just sit and enjoy the view. There are also restaurants where one can... More

If you can put up with the sun full frontal (in winter) then this is a nice place to start the day, idly chewing your toast while watching the world go by, both on land and water. It's not cheap, 6 slices of toast, two coffees and two large pressed orange juices 15€, but you're on holiday aren't you? Pity... More

The Palmeral de las Sorpresas is a beautiful modern city park. The plants have now grown and this makes the park more attractive than when it was new. The design of the park is geometrical and this adds to the beauty of the park. There is also shade from the concrete structures by the side of the main walkway. It... More

My friend and I walked here in August and it was scorching! The place looks cool, and the architecturally pretty "roof" walkway looks quite nice, but offers no respite from the sun. There is NO shade in this whole area, so stay away in the heat of summer! It was pretty with views to the cathedral across the water, but... More

There is a rather over-engineered 'roof' that provides shade, and a glass screen between you and the harbour. So if there is ever a freezing wind blowing in from the sea, the screen would be good - does this happen in Málaga? If there is hot sun the overhead will be welcome, I am sure this does happen in Málaga.... More

The Palmeral is a recently developed promenade area by the harbour/marina just a short walk from the centre of Malaga. There is a covered stretch which leads to shops, restaurants and bars and a little further on there is a pleasant sandy beach. We were in the city for three days and spent part of each day in this area... More

The Palmeral de las Sorpresas is a very nice place to walk. The sight of the harbor is very good and the gardens have many benches where one can spend a while to rest and enjoy the views.

Lovely promenade walk and a little bit of something for everyone - views, shops, bars, restaurants, gardens, dancing water fountain, children's play area - all new and fresh. The day we visited there was a cruise liner berthed. I would recommend a visit.
