Ferry service to Morcco

by mlaskin100


I will be in Malaga for over a week and thought I'd like to visit Morocco too. Can anyone suggest ferry service?

Thanks again

Re: Ferry service to Morcco

by puerto_lover

It is best if you go to Algeciras or Tarifa for ferries to Tangier or Ceuta.

If you rely on public transport, get a bus from Malaga to Algeciras. There you will find the port terminal for several different ferries each day. Another port at Tarifa is further but has a fast catamaran service to tangier.

The company running that service is : www.frs.es

Alternatively you can use one of the tour operators who advertise in the Costa del Sol for tours. Early morning pick up and transfers.

Have a look on VT Algeciras and Tarifa pages for some more ideas as well.

From Malaga you can also go to different places inland for example Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Ronda etc

Travel Tips for Málaga

Plaza de la Merced

by Malecka

Ok, close to the Plaza del General Torrijos there’s a tunnel taking you directly to Plaza de la Merced – a place very much ALIVE, full of bars, cafes and of course, people. Located at one of the corners of this plaza you can find the house where Picasso was born and lived the first ten years of his life. An interesting place to visit – they have nice souvenirs (though a bit expensive) and also it is open on Sundays also. “Enfrente del Pintor” (very cool name by the way) is a bar located (as the name suggests) opposite of the Picasso’s house. In case you’re feeling kind of hungry, just turn right when stepping outside the house and go straight, and you reach a marvelous pastry-shop called “José María.”
And in the same line where the house of Picasso is, you can find nice cafes, like El Portón - HAPPY HOUR: Tasty coffee and nice staff.
At night, especially Fridays and Saturdays the Plaza de la Merced is PACKED with people, tourists and locals.

PS. I have no idea how I managed to actually take a pic on a rainy day. I promise though, it is Costa del Sol! ;-) The morning coffee, the afternoon "Tinto de verano" and the evenings spent in "Latina"

Malaga - eastern beaches

by Raquero

This is the beach nearest to the east of Malaga City, 10 mins walk from the centre. Together with la Calletta they form a beach about 2 km long, skirted by a wide promenade for walking or cycling. The sand nearest the promendade is hard, good for running or jogging, with distance markers every 400 meters.

The beaches have shower facilities,several beach fish restaurants (chiringuitos) where sardines are barbacued to order.

Fruit the size of footballs

by Senoritasmile about Central Mercado de Ataranzanas

Vibrant food market set in an attractive, turn of the century market hall. Fruit, veggies, herbs, fish, meat, 100's of olives, cold meats etc.....nice to grab a selection and head to the beach. Stalls close by 2pm.

There are Taxi stops, but you can always stop a Taxi in the street when you need it. The minimun you will have to pay is, I think 2.50 euros, than from there the taximeter will count. Every taxi have taximetre, but if you are going out of the center of Malaga they will use a standar tarif they have in a paper.

A world of food

by PrincessMonja about Pomelo

This is a nice restaurant which seemed very popular. Their menu has lots of different dishes from all around the world. The restaurant also has a large range of Belgian beers, try the 'Kwak', it comes in a test tube in a wooden holder!

The food we had was fresh and tasty, and we'll be back! Red Thai chicken curry - very tasty and has a definite 'Thai flavour', although without the heat! (I'm still on the hunt for genuine spicy food in Andalucia!)
