If your cruise includes a Malaga shore excursion, then you'll in all probablity set foot in one of the world’s most modern passenger terminals. You’ll have easy access to the centre of the city, and to a whole host of attractions that tempt tourists from all over the world. The Costa del Sol’s largest city and a home to museums, beaches and beautiful hiking trails, Malaga has everything you’ll need whether you like history and culture or shopping, sun and sand.
Malaga’s attractions are for everyone. From an authentic Spanish bullring to long stretches of sandy beach, you’ll find plenty to fill your time. An abundance of art museums offer the opportunity to learn more about famous artists and less well-known ones, with art being an important part of the city’s history, whilst more adventurous travellers can make their way to the El Chorro gorge to try their hand at rock-climbing. The city’s Interactive Museum of Music has the world’s largest collection of musical instruments and the impressive Malaga Cathedral is right in the heart of the city and easy to access on foot. Of course, there are a few attractions that get more attention than others:
Picasso Museum and Birthplace
Two separate attractions, but best enjoyed as one, Picasso’s birthplace and museum offer the opportunity to see the artist’s paintings, and items from his past. Picasso was arguably the most famous 20th Century artist, and these affordable attractions allow you to learn more about him in the city of his birth.
The Alcazba fort is well-preserved and a popular Malaga attraction. The castle was built in the 11th Century, in a lovely hillside location, and has beautiful gardens and excellent views of the city.
La Conception Botanical and Historical Garden
You’ll see a wide variety of colourful plants at La Conception. Again, this attraction offers exceptional city views. You can walk through the gardens at your own pace, or enjoy a guided tour to learn more about the plants.
If you’re shopping in Malaga, then you’ll find a wide variety of interesting souvenirs to take back to your cruise ship. The city’s markets are ideal if you want to pick up a bargain, and there are shops selling hats, bags and belts that are favourites with tourists. The Liberia de Idiomas is a large library stocking a huge selection of books, and in a city so heavily influenced by art you’ll find plenty of galleries stocking beautiful pieces to buy and take away.
If you’re looking for a luxury shopping experience, then make your way to Marqués de Larios. There, you can walk on traffic-free marble pavements to high-quality shops and fashion boutiques selling decorative items, homewares, clothes and accessories from top designer names.
In Malaga you’ll find restaurants that cater to every taste and that suit every budget. As a very popular holiday destination, you’ll find that every country’s cuisine is represented. From traditional British meals to American fast food favourites, and from Chinese restaurants to Italian pizzerias, you’ll have no trouble finding food to satisfy any particular craving. The locals enjoy fish and seafood dishes, with authentic paella being a common find, and meals are often accompanied by sangria or a glass of Mosto, which is a sweet wine.
Grilled sardines and deep-fried fish are an acquired taste, but if you’re looking to really experience the city’s cuisine then you’ll want to give them a try. You might also opt for tuna or clams, often served in flavourful sauces, or salted ham that’s often accompanied by herbs and spices. If you’re looking for something light before returning to your cruise ship, then you can sample a few dishes at a local tapas restaurant or visit a beach vendor for breads, pastries or fast food snacks.
