Nice place and a great restaurant

We visited this beautiful garden for few hours and it was really worth it. After some good wandering we had something to eat at the cafe. Food was great and everything was nice.

My mum and I visited the gardens during a week long stay in Malaga in June. Having read some of the reviews we weren't sure what to expect but we're so glad we went. It wasn't too hot a day so walking around was easy. We only saw 4 other people all afternoon and it was very quiet and tranquil,... More

This is a place to go only if you really want to visit it. It is a bit of an effort to get there, but well worth it. We visited in July 2016, on a sunny day after a stormy night. All was green and cool at first, but got warmer as the sun shone. Great for trees, bushes, ponds,... More

Spend half a day there during june, nice and quiet walk with enough to see despite it being summer which means many flowers are gone.

Just spent a couple of hours at the garden on the way back to the airport so did not see much. Intersting trees and plants all well labelled. Plenty of cool, shade under the trees.The garden is also full of birds including golden orioles, firecrests etc.

I went here today with my mum and sister after reading good reviews. We are staying quite far from where you would take a public bus so we took a taxi there 12€ and back 8€. The gardens are 5.20 to get in. We started with a lovely lunch at the cafe we had a delish quiche and salad. The... More

Malaga is a great city, which makes it difficult to choose what to do during a short period here in the heart of Andalusia. One thing we have learn't, do not choose to visit the Botanico jardins. Though the cafe area was lovely with homemade cakes and great service, the gardens were very disappointing. they were not maintained, nor well... More

The bus from Malaga Centre was only €1.30 and was a pleasant trip which took about 25 mins. The bus terminates, however, quite a long walk from the Garden with busy motorways nearby, and not a great walk for a solo visitor. However, the return bus journey starts directly outside the Garden and goes direct to the Marina end of... More

Spent the day took a picnic but the cafe had beer wine lunches looked great from across the bar. Lots of interesting plants. Incredible views and mostly shaded and cool from the sun. Saw frogs and turtles and fish too. Shame some pools were a bit green and greasy looking. Otherwise absolutely worth the entrance fee. Nice toilets and cute... More

This used to be the university's botanical gardens, and before that a privately owned estate. Given the near-desert climate of Malaga the planting always struggles a bit with the heat, and having over the years been laced around with a major motorway triangle surely doesn't help. And the access, relying on minor roads winding around one of the the biggest... More
