Malaga Cruise Port

Port of Malaga, Malaga, Andalucia

The Basics

Passengers docking at the Málaga Cruise Port will find plenty to do either independently or as part of guided city tours. Top attractions include the Alcazaba (a Moorish fort), 16th-century Málaga Cathedral, Roman Theatre, and Picasso Museum Málaga, all of which are within walking distance of each other.

Spanish tapas also originated in this region of Spain, so be sure to indulge with a glass of sangria at one of the many tapas bars and restaurants throughout the city center. Meanwhile, sun seekers will appreciate the nice stretch of sand just 650 feet (200 meters) from the dock.
