Located right in the center of the southern coast of Spain, Málaga is a major port city and the capital of the province of the same name. It is one of the oldest polises of Europe, which since its foundation (around the 8th century BC) has been an important center of trade. With its well-developed infrastructure and variety of interesting attractions, every year Málaga attracts thousands of tourists. For most visitors, the port is one of the most interesting parts of the city.
It is divided into several piers dedicated to different types of vessels. For example, the eastern one is used for mooring large cruise ships. The location of the marina is very convenient – it is a 15 minute walk to the center of the city and the key sights. Shuttle buses are available to tourists to the center and other interesting areas of the city. There is a beautiful sandy beach just over 200 meters from the port, where you can have a good rest.
If you are visiting Málaga to start your boat trip you can cruise to Melilla – it is a key destination of the local ferries. Ferries from the port are operated by two operators:
- «Balearia». A major ferry operator, which offers both high-speed and cruising voyages on modern ferries with comfortable conditions for rest.
- «Trasmediterranea». One of the key transport organizations in Spain, which offers year-round crossings on high-tech comfortable ships.
The port itself is most convenient to get to from Costa del Sol International Airport. Tourists can take a shuttle or cab. Another option is to take a ferry from another part of Spain. You can check the timetable and routes of the ferries, as well as buy a ticket in advance on our website.
