Gateway to Andalusia

Established in 2008 as part of Creuers del Port de Barcelona, Malaga Cruise Port manages all three cruise terminals of the Port of Malaga. Malaga Cruise Port is located in a strategic area in Southern Europe, connecting with routes to the Atlantic and the Mediterranean to make it a gateway to Andalusia. The port is just 15 minutes away from Malaga International Airport, which offers flights to and from Europe and all around the world. Malaga’s port facilities, hotels and airport all make it a truly world-class international homeport.

Malaga Cruise Port provides a comprehensive range of services at the three cruise terminals: Terminal A, Terminal B and the Palm Grove Terminal and operates cruise piers over a total of 1,350 m, allowing Malaga to receive cruise ships of any sizes from all over the world. Larger cruise liners dock in the eastern area and smaller cruise ships dock at the inner basin next to the Palm Grove waterfront, which is within five minute’s walking distance to the cathedral. Malaga Cruise Port has invested heavily in port facilities to provide full turnaround and transit services. It also has a small shopping center offering duty free and souvenir shopping. A shuttle service to the city center is also in operation.

All three terminals have been designed with the latest requirements concerning safety and security in mind, and each fully complies with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code). Terminal A is equipped with two boarding bridges specially designed for a new generation of ships. It has already hosted some of the world’s biggest cruise ships, such as Genesis from RCCL and Dream Class from Carnival. Terminal B, with its modern boarding bridge, offers full turnaround and transit services. The Palm Grove Terminal, designed to operate small and mid-sized ships up to 200 m, is located in a stunning environment surrounded by gardens in the heart of the city center.

As part of Global Ports Holding’s acquisition of Creuers del Port de Barcelona in 2014, Malaga Cruise Port became subsidiary of Global Ports Holding.
