We have been coming to this city for many, many years now and there is no doubt this port has added a lot to it.

It is an added dimension which has allowed cruise ships to come to the city for better and worse and a whole host of new restaurants to open.

To be honest, most of these are two gentrified for us as we would prefer a Tapas bar in the city centre but there is no doubt these mainly chain restaurants are very popular.

There are beautiful walks around the harbour and along its edge so it is well worth coming out of the city to visit at least once.

This is a very nice stretch to stroll along and take in the views and sights. We walked along the Paseo de Los Curas and found lots of cafes, restaurants and shops as well as street performers - singers, dancers and acrobats.
There is a 'roof', of sorts, that does give a light bit of shade during hot and sunny days and there is a panoramic view of the harbour with its yachts and bigger ships.
It does get very busy especially when the cruise ships are visiting.

The port and marina of Malaga is a very popular place for tourists and local people. We were there in December but the weather was sunny and warm (22 degrees) so we sometimes walked to the sea. It’s very close to the centre and the promenade is great, too. We saw the lighthouse, the ships and enjoyed the wonderful sunset. It’s worth a visit.

My husband and I were staying for 12 days in the Malegueta area of Malaga., close to 'everything'. 10 - 15 minute walk max. This new MuelleUno area is along one side of the port consisting of excellent restaurants with outdoor seating and cool modern gift shops. Views from your lunch or dinner table are of yachts and the occasional larger ship docking for the day. It's quite crowded with locals walking their dogs and mostly tourists. I bought some wonderful French soaps in cute shapes and other gift soaps. There's always a big lineup to buy smoothie ice creams. The gift shops have interesting and clever merchandise. The Pompidou museum is right there, too although the collection is out on tour this February, 2020. We were staying a 5 minute walk away so could go down to the below street level MuelleUno for an Indian, Mexican, Argentinian steak or Greek dinner for lunch or dinner every couple of days. Tapas and Spanish meals including fish are served, too. A really enjoyable experience!

You can spend hours wandering the shops, drinking in the bars or eating in the sea view restaurants. You can listen to buskers along the way or book a boat trip.

Beautiful promenade with stunning views. We went every day for a walk. On Sunday there was market stalls where you can purchase gifts, clothes, food and drinks (fresh mojitos!)

We took bread with us and feed the fish at the harbour too. Love this place, so chilled and perfect in the sun.

Lively atmosphere throughout the whole area, busy place and an excellent setting to walk and relax. Nice selection of catering facilities, including restaurants, cafes, bars also retail units for light shopping.

The weather was slightly cool in the morning but, beautiful by the afternoon and the whole environment isbussing and friendly.

Definitely this area is a bonus to anyone visiting or staying in Malaga town.

The port area was so nice! There were free nice public bathrooms here. The restaurants/bars here seemed to be pricey. Hard Rock Cafe is here. When you pass the boats & go east, pass the lighthouse, you will see the beach! The sand is dark & with shells but still nice. Lovely walk in the evening with good live music/buskers( Sinatra to classic rock tunes).Spent at least an hour here & then the park next to it is nice too & people still out strolling here too

The port of malaga was a nice location to go out for a stroll and walk around and see the city. Great view of the gibralforo castle from the port. The walk along the sea was nice, calm and relaxing.

People are playing music, reading, walking, sitting, buying, eating and having a good time. Marked at Saturdays. So many gulls I've never seen before. Easy to spend a day there

The port of Malaga is 3000 years old. However, the deep old man has the look of a young man. After the reconstruction in 2011, the embankment and the cruise terminal area were transformed. The dominant feature is a beautiful design wavy canopy. It is not only eye-catching, but also functional. The number 1 challenge on the Costa del Sol is to hide from the relentless sun. The work area is separated from the walking area by a tempered glass partition, ensuring safety. Great project!
