By walking along this palm lined waterfront esplanade, one discovers all walks of life - bikers, joggers, retired couples, back packers, - you name it. There is usually some type of ship tied up and we witnessed the Christain Radich depart with 50 Danish students on board. The "roof" has beams that are arranged to give a wave effect and... More

This site happens to be most happening site & beautiful place to know about the history of Malaga. After visiting the monument, one can take a walk in Horse carrier to roam around Malaga which is very beautiful especially during late evening time with lots of lights on street.

Malaga city-port has a water front promenade called The Palmeral de las Sorpresas means 'The Palm Garden of Surprises'. It is a long walk way which hugs the port and is lined with planted palm trees. There are many quiet corners to sit in and soak up the atmosphere. Many bars and restaurants can be found here.

This walk is beautiful. Although there is glass on parts of it to the view of the water however, this does not distract from the beauty. There are a few restaurants along here - pricey - but would be worth a drink or snack; we were low on time and unable to sit anywhere to see if they are worth... More

Such a great place to admire the beautiful gardens, and there are plenty of walking paths and seating throughout the park.

Bizarre statement I know, but I find this highly modern area has a wonderfully old fashioned relaxed area. Many reviews before me have explained what's actually there. I would encourage anyone who has the time to wander along and enjoy this special area.

This is a lovely place to walk along and is well used by young and old alike for that favourite past time walking. This is well designed with plenty of seating and play areas, fountains and trees and cafes. Some beautiful boats tie up alongside and they are well worth seeing. Clean and accessible. If you visit Malaga you must... More

A lovely garden of trees, flowers, and statuary in the middle of the downtown waterfront. There are a number of paths which thread their way through the greenery and benches are everywhere, so you can sit and contemplate or enjoy a picnic lunch. To one side are impressive, ornate buildings. To the other is the charming waterfront paseo.

Beautifully made, however a lot of walking to get to the actual shops and bars at the pier. Absolutely worth a visit, especially the fist bar in front of the ancient ship.
