Malaga Park (Parque de Malaga) was constructed in the late 19th century and given a major facelift in 2007. The park runs parallel to Malaga Port and is almost one kilometre in length, stretching from Plaza de la Marina to Plaza del General Torrijos.Â The park contains plants from every continent. There’s a shady walkway at either side of the park, with plenty of shrubs, fountains and quiet corners along the central strip. If you’re walking from the old town to Malagueta Beach this is the most scenic (and coolest) route.

Where to Stay in Malaga
Malaga makes a great city break destination I’ve researched the 7 of the best cheap hotels in Malaga. I also recommend the family run, characterful Hotel California, which cost a little above the Â£50 a night limit I sent for inclusion in budget hotels.
