Backdrop of old history

We found this boardwalk as we were following the carnival parade. Really gorgeous area with battleships mixed with live jazz cafes. Take walk back through the park behind it.

. Palmeral de las Sorpresas An unexpected treat – a real “sorpresa” in fact – was this lovely walkway alongside the Muelle Dos - the port-side walk. In Malaga Port itself, just by the new Pompidou Centre, the one that looks like a Rubik's Cube.. It's basically a long thin park. One part of it is a pedestrian and cycle... More

The Palmeral de las Sorpresas is a beautiful promenade, filled with trees, shrubs and flowers. It is located beside the port, so you can see the water and ships as you walk here. There are also restaurants where you can have some refreshment.

This is a beautiful paved walkway with gardens to one side and the lower port walk and the sea on the other side. It is very elegant. It is separated from the lower part by perspex panels and you cannot change from the main promenade to the walk by the boats except at each end of the promenade. At the... More

Palmeral de las Sopressas, or The Palm Grove of Surprizes, is a boulevard along the park and waterfront that provides a nice walking path to the lighthouse and along the waterfront. There are restaurant and bars plus some shoppping, but the best experience is simply walking. Nicely transformed from a typical gritty waterfront area, the ground level and elevated walkway... More

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
