Port Description

Malaga, Spain

Befitting a city on Spain's famed Costa del Sol, Malaga offers lazy days in the surf, sun, and sand, cozy coves, quaint fishing villages, and seaside promenades. Acres of beach beg for exploration and sidewalk cafés welcome diners eager to try local specialties like tangy gazpacho and succulent pescaito frito (fried fish). Restless sightseers ill suited to whiling away the day beneath a steamy Mediterranean sun can check out two Moorish monuments: the Alcazaba, an ancient palace abloom with orange trees and bougainvillea, and the Castillo de Gibralfaro--both boast high-on-the-hill grounds overlooking city and sea.
