Bathing in the sunshine coast’s stunning subtropical climate, and laying out endless spectacular beaches, it’s no surprise that Malaga is one of Spain’s most popular cities. The already impressive cultural appeal of this holiday city has skyrocketed over recent years, and with a storied old town and Moorish fortifications, Malaga has a lot to offer. Nearby, you can recline on the renowned beaches of the Costa del Sol, or venture inland to discover the Moorish treasures of Granada and Cordoba. View more

La Malagueta beach is Malaga’s spacious urban beach, perfect for a sunbathe and a dip in the warm water, before enjoying seaside cocktails or seafood tapas in the restaurants nearby. Malaga and the Costa del Sol may be best known for glorious weather and beaches, but Malaga can now stake a genuine claim as an artistic powerhouse too. Visit the renowned Picasso museum – housed in the artist’s birthplace – before exploring the freshly opened outpost of the Pompidou Centre. The art also spills out onto the streets in the colourful Soho district – splashed with vibrant street paintings. Known as La Manquita – or the one-armed woman – the city’s cathedral rises over the historic old town. Its huge bell tower stands tall, but an accompanying second tower was never completed - hence the nickname. The Alcazaba fortress palace looms over the waterfront and forms a spectacularly preserved remnant from the era when the Moors controlled the Andalucía region. Discover more of the Arabic influence by visiting Granada’s Alhambra palace, or Cordoba’s La Mezquita mosque. Together with Seville’s converted cathedral, the cities form Andalucía’s Golden Triangle of Moorish wonders.

Exkursionen in MALAGA (Costa del Sol)

Alhambra Generalife & Gardens

Experience the history and grandeur of one of Spain's most famous attractions during this full-day visit to Granada and the Alhambra: Generalife and Gardens. Granada rose to fame when the Moors transferred the seat of their diminishing dominions to this city, which is located amidst the low foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Granada's crowning glory is the Alhambra, the Moorish citadel complex with its splendid palace overlooking the city.


Depart the pier for the approximate 80-mile (129-kilometre) drive to Granada, with a comfort stop made en route.


The Alhambra

Upon reaching the Alhambra, the last capital of the Moors, meet the local guides and begin a walking tour of Generalife and its gardens. A short walk takes you to the entrance of the vast complex. Begun in 1238 by the Moorish ruler Ibn el-Ahmer, the fortified hilltop complex became a world-renowned centre of art and culture. It was so impressive that the Christian conquerors of the day could not bear to destroy it. Today, the legendary Alhambra remains Spain's most outstanding symbol of Moorish heritage.


Generalife

Your walk continues along landscaped pathways to the Generalife, site of the Moorish rulers' summer palace. Its location on higher ground made it a pleasant and cool retreat. The gardens are renowned for their terraced flowerbeds, fountains and spectacular views of the city.


A short walk brings you for lunch to Ruta del Veleta restaurant. After lunch, return drive to Málaga.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking (2.5 hours) inside the Alhambra. Distance on foot is approximately 1600m (1 mile). The drive between the pier and Granada is approximately two hours in each direction. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended.

Leave Malaga behind and embark on a scenic drive through the Andalusian countryside towards the historical city of Cordoba.


Cordoba & the Grand Mosque


Cordoba was once the largest and probably the most beautiful city in the world. It is a city that demonstrates a past where Jewish, Christian and Muslim's peacefully co-existed and left a beautiful legacy of architecture to be appreciated for centuries to come.


Cross the Guadalquivir River via the Roman Bridge and enter the city close to the Mesquita (Grand Mosque) which is one of the largest Mosque's in the world. When the city was re-conquered by the Christians they were so impressed by the beauty of the mosque that, rather than demolish it they simply built a Cathedral inside it. Weave your way through the arches and columns to discover this stunning and bizarre piece of art and architecture.

Historic Quarter & Mudejar Synagogue

Step back out into the city for a walk around the Historic Quarter - La Juderia. Once the home of the Jewish Community, it is an intricate network of narrow and winding streets lined with flower filled patios and traditional buildings hiding just around the corner. Make a visit to the Mudejar Synagogue which is one of only 3 remaining Synagogues in Spain.

Lunch & souvenires shopping

Lunch will be served in a local restaurant and afterwards enjoy some free time to shop for souvenirs or simply take a last look at the city.

Kayaking the Maro Cliffs

Experience the pristine natural beauty of Málaga in a unique way during this scenic and invigorating sea-kayaking journey. Your destinations will take you to beautiful places that include spectacular cliffs, caves and corners only accessible by kayak.


Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate one-hour drive to Nerja. Upon arrival, safety and paddling instructions for negotiating individual and two-person kayaks.


Kayaking Málaga

Your guided kayaking tour commences along a route that includes the magnificent natural area of Nerja and the Maro Cliffs. Along the way, enter small caves, waterfalls, seagull habitats and many other places that are only accessible from a small craft. Frequent stops are made to explain the curiosities and elements of the landscape. A stop is also made upon reaching Maro Beach for a refreshing swim before commencing the kayak journey back to Nerja.


Following your kayaking journey, re-board the coach for the return drive to the pier.

Malaga (Wheelchair accessible)

This tour involves a moderate amount of walking of approximately 1.3 miles and is specially designed for guests who utilise a wheelchair or a scooter.


This Malaga shore excursion gives you a perfect glimpse of the picturesque Costa del Sol town. Escorted by your tour guide, you will enjoy a memorable stroll in the heart of Malaga, experiencing the majestic Alcazaba Moorish fort, the Roman theatre, and El Pimpi Bodega. You will also enjoy an interior visit to the glorious Malaga Cathedral and have time for some leisurely time in the historic Plaza de la Constitucion for shopping or coffee on your own.


Malaga, Alcazaba Moorish Fort, Roman Ruins, El Pimpi Bodega

Start your tour by meeting your tour guide and accessible van at the cruise dock. From here, you will set out on a short drive to the city center. Upon arrival, you will head out on a slow-paced, leisurely stroll through the beautiful city center. Your tour guide will narrate you through different sites, as you admire the impressive exterior of the Alcazaba Moorish fort, ancient Roman ruins, and the famous El Pimpi Bodega.


Cathedral

Next, your tour continues with an interior visit to the glorious Malaga Cathedral. The Cathedral is an impressive example of Renaissance and Baroque style architecture and was built between 1528 and 1782. An interesting fact about the Cathedral is that due to lack of funds to finish completing the planned two towers, the structure only has one tower. It's called "La Manquita" which means the one-armed woman. During your visit inside the Cathedral, admire the beautiful, detailed work which includes exquisite choir stalls with extravagant carvings and the two rare and beautiful organs with more than 4,000 pipes.


Plaza de la Constitucion, free time

On the final part of your tour, you will stroll along the pedestrianized shopping street Calle Marques de Larios, before continuing to the stunning and Plaza de la Constitucion for some leisurely time on your own. This Plaza is the main square of the city and it holds a significance in both the city's past and present. In fact, it has served at a public space since the 15th century! While here, you can admire the beautiful well-preserved Spanish architecture and the historic Fuente de Genova fountain, and enjoy the many charming cafes and small shops.


After your free time, reboard your accessible van and return to the pier.

Explore the splendid landmarks, attractions and architecture of the capital of the Costa del Sol during this scenic, half-day visit to Málaga, a historic and culturally rich provincial capital which has long lived in the shadow of the iconic Andalucian cities of Granada, Córdoba and Seville. Yet, it has rapidly emerged as the province's city of culture with its so-called 'mile of art' being compared to Madrid, and its dynamism and fine dining to Barcelona.


Depart the pier for the approximate 30-minute sightseeing drive along Alameda Boulevard en route to the hilltop location of Gibralfaro.


Gibralfaro

As you walk along the ramparts crowning the 560-foot (168-metre) summit, take in splendid views over the city, the harbour and the bullring. Afterward, re-board the coach for the drive back down to the city centre.


Alcazaba

From City Hall, take a brief walk to the Alcazaba. At the foot of this ancient fortress, view the excavated ruins of a Roman amphitheatre. The restored Alcazaba dates back to the 11th century, when the king of Granada ordered the fortress built and modelled on the style of the Alhambra. After the Christian conquest, the Catholic kings took over the Alcazaba, and King Philip IV used it as his Málaga residence. Leaving the Alcazaba, your walk continues on to the cathedral.


Cathedral

The cathedral's splendid interior is highlighted by exquisitely-carved choir stalls, and other fine examples of Spanish Renaissance sculpture.


Following your visit, some free time is made available to explore the surrounding area before re-boarding your coach for the drive back to the pier.

Picasso & Old Málaga

Málaga is not only the capital of the Costa del Sol, but also a cultural reference on a national and international level. Since opening in 2003, the Picasso museum has surpassed the most optimistic forecasts, enabling visitors to enjoy over two hundred major works by an artist considered to be the towering genius of 20th-century world painting.


Málaga

Depart the pier by walking into the city of Málaga, one of the oldest cities in the world, founded in the 8th century founded by the Phoenicians. Your first stop is Calle Larios, the main shopping street of Málaga.


Next, cross Constitution Square, then walk along Calle Granada to the Plaza de la Merced. Here, discover Picasso's birthplace and an exhibition about the famous artist, then proceed to the highlight of the tour, the Picasso Museum of Málaga, or 'Museo Picasso Málaga'.


Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum is permanently housed in the Palacio de Buenavista, a 16th-century historical building that is adorned with the Andalusian architecture of the day, along with a unique blend of Renaissance and Mudejar elements. Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to Pablo Picasso's own desire for his work to be present in the city where he was born on October 25, 1881. The museum was created thanks to Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, the artist's daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations constitute the core of the collection. It was also made possible thanks to the efforts of the Junta de Andalucía, which coordinated the major project of setting up a museum devoted to the artist whose styles and techniques changed the course of modern art.


Bodega Patio de Beatas

Following your guided museum visit, proceed to the Bodega El Pimpi for some tapas accompanied by wine.


Afterward, you may opt to return directly to the pier, or remain in the city for further exploration before taking the shuttle back to the pier.

Ronda

Ronda's cultural background combines Moorish influence with Christian Spanish remains.

The village emerges amidst evergreen pine trees, inviting you to explore its nooks and crannies and photograph the famous donkey "taxis".
