My friend and I walked here in August and it was scorching! The place looks cool, and the architecturally pretty "roof" walkway looks quite nice, but offers no respite from the sun. There is NO shade in this whole area, so stay away in the heat of summer! It was pretty with views to the cathedral across the water, but it wasn't busy enough to be fun to hang out at for a long time - probably because we went in August. We found a restaurant and sat to have some drinks in the shade and that was nice, but it would have been better if more people were around.

There is a rather over-engineered 'roof' that provides shade, and a glass screen between you and the harbour. So if there is ever a freezing wind blowing in from the sea, the screen would be good - does this happen in Málaga? If there is hot sun the overhead will be welcome, I am sure this does happen in Málaga. If it is pouring with rain you will still get wet. The view of the harbour is OK. In summary, it's pleasant enough but not special. There are more pleasant and more interesting walks in Málaga.

The Palmeral is a recently developed promenade area by the harbour/marina just a short walk from the centre of Malaga. There is a covered stretch which leads to shops, restaurants and bars and a little further on there is a pleasant sandy beach. We were in the city for three days and spent part of each day in this area either eating, drinking, looking at the shops or just walking or sitting enjoying the views. During our stay there were several cruise ships docked there which added a bit of extra interest to the whole experience.
The Palmeral is a very prestigious, tasteful and welcome development and gives Malaga extra tourist appeal. Definitely worth a visit.

The Palmeral de las Sorpresas is a very nice place to walk. The sight of the harbor is very good and the gardens have many benches where one can spend a while to rest and enjoy the views.

Lovely promenade walk and a little bit of something for everyone - views, shops, bars, restaurants, gardens, dancing water fountain, children's play area - all new and fresh. The day we visited there was a cruise liner berthed. I would recommend a visit.
