This place presents a natural gateway into the splendid Malaga harbour. Once you are facing the square, you see some of the most grand-style building in the city, incl. the Marriott hotel.

You can't miss the square since going between the harbour and the city centre, you'll most likely be passing via the square. There's a lot of things happening around the area, one side has the park, the other side the harbour where cruise ships dock.

Very nice area at the harbour to walk and people watch. Safe. If you come in on a ship you can stroll to the main part of old town. You are about a 10 minute wak to all the sites close to the cathedral.

The distance is 3.3 km. When there are cruise ships there is a bus that brings them to the Plaza de la Marina for a nominal fee.
