You can walk around the area and have a look at the Puerto with its ships, as well as the Park which continues to the East. The atmosphere is quiet, and there's enough shade to survive the hot sun of Summer!

Its a lovely place to walk along the water. There are some small parks on the sides and some places to eat as well. Even with the shade provided by the metal "palm trees" it is quite hot and humid. The walk is basically from the ferris wheel to the Pompidou Museum.

Exellent place to walk and enjoy the magic ambience of Malaga. You can sit and enjoy the view, or ride a bike, visit the museum or grab a snack at the restaurants located there.During the night its event better when you can enjoy the fresh breeze, flamenco and good food.

We docked at the port of Malaga then walked here. Maybe 1/2 mile walk but there are sidewalks to go on. Had a great lunch then headed back to the ship.

The palms give a very nice look to this place, which becomes more enjoyable and pleasant for a walk.

This is a seaside promenade with surprises: many attractions offer a lot of fun (apparently for kids only, but we only discovered it when leaving, so we had fun even as adults).

Pretty place to go for a stroll, sometimes you'll have nice views of the cool boats that dock there. I've been living in Malaga for 4 months now and have never once eaten at any of the restaurants there or bars, they're very touristy and I'm sure, overpriced.

After doing the Ferris wheel we decided to take the stroll down. It leads to the centre Pompidou as well. Best time is in the early evening. Such lovely atmosphere and views around.
