This lighthouse is at the entrance to the Malaga harbor. It’s ok. I’ve seen a lot of lighthouses and this one is pretty average. It is easy to get to and easy to see.

As an non-lighthouse fan, I’m not interested to see a lighthouse. But it’s something you have to see when you are in Malaga.

This beautiful lighthouse stood out in the lovely harbour area of Malaga. We were travelling on the Tui Marella. spirit cruise ship and had a wander around the port. As we departed this landmark shone on the distance and welcomed us back on our return.
