The 8 Best Sunsets in Malaga

It is true that in our getaways we always leave some time for relaxation and contemplation, that’s why you can’t miss this article which includes the eight places to see the best sunsets from Malaga.

Baños del Carmen Beach.

The beach of Pedregalejo or the beach of Los Baños del Carmen is well known for its proximity to the city of Malaga and for an old spa (now converted into a restaurant). 

From this beach, we can see how the sun goes down between the mountains of Torremolinos, and as it gets dark, and the lights come on, we can make out the city of Malaga, the port, and Torremolinos.

Gibralfaro Castle.

This is a spectacular place situated on the hill of Malaga, above the Plaza de Toros de la Malagueta, which we can walk to after a 20-minute walk from the Roman Theatre. The Castle is another option to watch the sunset from its viewpoint with the city at your feet as the sun disappears into the mountains.

El Peñon del Cuervo

Further east of the beach of Los Baños del Carmen is beach of Peñón del Cuervo. This small place seems to have two beaches since the Peñón del Cuervo is situated in the middle, which makes an optical vision of division. Moreover, on this beach, we can find a mountain with several unspoilt viewpoints.

This place offers us the possibility of meeting with family or friends at night, with beautiful sunsets, only 20 minutes by car from the city centre.

There is nothing better than enjoying nature surrounded by our loved ones, so we invite you to visit our guided tours.

Pocopán Viewpoint

This viewpoint is located in one of the highest areas of the Montes de Málaga, to the north of the city. The route to get there is partly by car (the road is accessible to all types of cars) and partly on foot

From here we can see some of the most important mountain ranges of Malaga, such as the Torcal de Antequera. 

It is undoubtedly a magnificent place from which to watch the sunset without artificial lights to enjoy it fully.

Mirador Pocopán

Viewpoint of Monte San Antón.

25 minutes from the city centre, we head towards the Montes de Málaga, specifically the Mirador de San Antón. It is an idyllic place to observe the bay of the city with a beautiful sunset.

Mount Victoria.

As you can see, Malaga offers many sunsets from viewpoints in the mountains, and here we recommend the last one. Just 10 minutes by car or 40 minutes walk from the city centre, we arrive at Monte Victoria, located in the Montes de Málaga. It is such a peculiar place because from here we can see the whole city and enjoy the magnificent sunset it offers us. 

Another way to enjoy our trip is by taking our magnificent Free Tour to discover the city step by step.

Muelle Uno and Palmeral de las Sorpresas.

What could be more relaxing than taking a quiet stroll while the sun goes down? Malaga gives us its port to see one of the best sunsets from inside the city. As we stroll through the port and along the promenade we can contemplate a beautiful sunset that invites us to sit, watch and enjoy our surroundings.

Terraces in the centre of Malaga.

In recent years it has become very fashionable to sit on the terraces that hotels offer us to have a pleasant conversation with friends or family while we have a drink and enjoy the views of the city. 

In the case of Malaga, some of the places that offer this service are Terraza Batik, AC Hotel Málaga Palacio, or Hotel Room Mate Valeria.
