As every year Malaga fair begins in August with fireworks. This is a show visible from all the Costa del Sol where there is direct line of sight and it will happen the night of 11 August. Do you know the best places to watch the Malaga fair fireworks?
The company providing the fireworks is the same that made them at the Eiffel Tower on July 14.
I have read the launch of the fireworks will take place during 20 minutes. In the sky of Malaga there will be multitude of figures made of the fireworks. 3D cubes, smiley faces, hearts and many more in a colorful show that will end with a thunderous pyrotechnic end.
What are the best places to see the fireworks of the fair of Malaga?
Fireworks can be seen from almost anywhere on the Costa del Sol with direct line of sight. There are different locations for those looking for something more special or for taking good photos of this event.
Watching the fireworks from Malaga Cathedral
If you want to watch the fireworks from a privileged place and paying is not a problem, there are 145 tickets for accessing the covers of the Cathedral of Malaga.
In the same cathedral there will be available for sale 15 tickets, an insufficient number so it will surely be difficult to get one this way. Other option for getting one is online or by phone.

If you don’t mind standing and being surrounded by people you can go to Malaga port. It is one of the best places for watching the fireworks.
From Gibralfaro viewpoint
This is one of the most popular locations for watching the fireworks, so you can expect many people around. You should go early for taking a place.
It is not too close distance but there is a clear view.
It is closer than Gibralfaro viewpoint to the place where fireworks are launched. The distance is close enough to even hear the music from the event.
Beach of Malagueta
This is one of the most popular places where enjoying the fireworks. There will be a live concert of ‘Miguel Bose’ and a lot of people. Teenagers use to choose this place as the starting point of the fair week.
Beach of Misericordia
Even not as close as Malagueta beach, there is a direct sight line of the fireworks. If you do not mind being somewhat further away this is an interesting place where watching the show.
Watching fireworks from promenade
If choosing the promenade you should be close to Malaga port. It is also a good place for taking good photos of the fireworks and one of the popular places so you can expect many people joining.
La Farola lighthouse
If you want to include in your photos the lighthouse of Malaga you should consider this place. It is just as close as the port of Malaga to enjoy the show.
