This beautiful lighthouse stood out in the lovely harbour area of Malaga. We were travelling on the Tui Marella. spirit cruise ship and had a wander around the port. As we departed this landmark shone on the distance and welcomed us back on our return.

Go for a walk around the marina and will come to La Farola, the lighthouse. Carry on around and you will reach a beach and a lovely promenade.
