The Port of Malaga is a few metres from the city?s historic centre and is close to many of the city?s signature sites such as Calle Larios, the Cathedral or the Alcázaba. Málaga?s location that makes it a nexus between Europe and Africa has led it to become one of the primary ports in Spain in cruise visitors through an exclusive two-kilometre berthing area for these vessels.
There are three different terminals for arriving passengers. Terminal A (?Terminal Base?) can accommodate the latest-generation cruise ships, while Terminal B can serve multiple ships simultaneously and boasts a commercial area.
The last area of the is the famous Palmeral de las Sorpresas. This terminal is unique in letting cruise ships dock at the foot of the city?s historic centre and letting every tourist take a step directly in the city of Malaga.
