Málaga Port is one of the most important points connecting Europe and Africa. It is situated close to the city centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the iconic Calle Larios, Málaga Cathedral and the Picasso Museum. It is also one of the main Spanish ports of call for cruise ships.
Málaga Port is one of the main driving forces of the city, in addition to be being a large commercial and logistical complex. It boasts over 7 kilometres of berths, of which 2 kilometres are for the exclusive use of cruise ships, enabling it to handle all types of traffic. It also has a direct connection to the north of Africa, with a daily route between Málaga and Melilla.
