Setting sail from Málaga

Málaga has at times had its reputation dragged down by association with the overdevelopment and high rise horrors of the Costa del Sol, which is a great shame, as there is plenty to satisfy the discerning traveller. The labyrinthine historic centre is right next to the cruise port, and has been given something of a makeover in recent years. Nowadays there are plenty of chic restaurants and bars where you can ease into the rhythms of life in southern Spain, before exploring sights including the intriguing, unfinished Gothic cathedral, and a museum devoted to Málaga's most famous son, Pablo Picasso.

Don't miss

Merienda time! The Spanish eat late, so you’ll need to indulge in this late afternoon snack to keep you going until your evening meal.

Arriving in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Situated on Tenerife's north eastern shore, the island's capital is a busy port that serves mostly as a gateway to the popular south west coast and the spectacular volcanic landscapes of the island's interior. There are a few attractions in the town itself, including the tree-lined Ramblas and the strikingly modern Auditorium, designed by Santiago Calatrava, but we wouldn't advise spending too much time in Santa Cruz, particularly in summer when it can get rather crowded. Head instead for the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Cristobal de la Laguna, Tenerife's former capital and the prettiest town on the island.

Our tip

Tenerife is a very developed tourist destination, but you can escape into the mountains for extraordinary scenery, and great hikes if that is your thing.
