Absolutely love this port. I come back most years and look forward to it. I don't go out sight seeing but lay on the beach instead. Would definitely recommend the beach if you like it. For a few euros you can use two sun beds with a sun umbrella for the day. The beach is lovely itself- sandy.

I didn't know what to expect from Malaga and had no preconception of what it might be like. It turned out that it's stunning! The medieval fort is well worth the climb, the views are spectacular!

We rented a taxi at the port with room for my scooter. At all stops actually. The rate was only 40 euros per hour for the cab. Not per person, for the cab! Our own private tour and able to stop fro photo s or bathroom breaks when we wanted to. Since we are older and I'm recovering from total hip replacement surgery this was important. This is also exactly what I plan to do on our next cruise. Adored Malaga.

Take the excursion to the Alhambra if you have never been to Spain or Granada. Definitely worth the effort to see this magnificent palace.

Some amazing places to eat in old town, Picasso's birthplace home/museum. Museum of glass is also great. A restaurant called Siga La Vaca was excellent.
