Granier is a local cafe chain offering an excellent variety of cakes, pastries and sandwiches with economical pricing. On the sea boulevard covered with an undulating awning you can watch the big ships embark while resting in the shade.

Palmeral de las Sorpresas translates as a palm surprise. Can 400 palm trees be a surprise? That`s a question, as Hamlet said. In fact, the real surprise is a long white pergola, which creates a chiaroscuro pattern that appears at the bottom. You might think that this is the creation of Santiago Calatrava, but it's not. Although this is also a Spanish design. The architectural firm Junquera Arquitectos designed this pergola from 2003 to 2006. Usually in landscape art there is a vine or something similar on the pergola. Here the Spanish architects went against the tradition going back to the times of ancient Rome. Palm trees are planted on the sides. It looks very cool! Another contrasting point for the Palm Surprise was the multicolored cube of the Pompidou Center branch in Malaga. Here it is an order of magnitude smaller than the monstrous building in Paris. In general, it is beautiful and modern.

This promenade is very popular place with lots of palm trees, market stalls and the view to the port. We liked walking there or sitting on a bench and listening to street musicians. It gives a real mediterranean feeling, I think it’s a must-see sight.

We passed through this on the way to the beach but it would be worth a visit to just stop and have a coffee or drink and watch the day go by. Loads of entertainment, dancing, music, puppets, even a section where you can sit down and play chess with other like minded travellers. Loads of variety in stalls also. Though not so much clothes for men.

This plaza is a lovely walkway that connects the harbor to the lovely restaurants at its side which in turn leads to the lovely beach on the other side of the point.

Nice harbour to walk along. We had the chance to see a cruise coming to Malaga. Sometimes it can get a bit crowded here.

The territory of the two piers of the port, which was gentrified in 2011, is a good example of the integration of the port and the city. This is not easy, given that the port assumes security. The name of the new embankment "Palm surprise" was given to 400 palm trees, but the most striking object is a designer canopy. The wavy Palio is not an original idea, such as can be seen in Seville, Toledo and even in Malaga itself on Larios street. However, in combination with the straight line of the coast, the blue sky and the sea, it all looks great...
