Pier One in Malaga: Leisure and shopping by the sea

Malaga is increasingly attractive and is continually adding new projects to make the capital of the Costa del Sol a truly cosmopolitan city, one example are the new shops at Malaga port. This trend is already underway for many years.

Pier 1 Malaga port

We remember those days when we passed by Malaga on the way to or from the airport approaching our holiday destination, but what could be incidentally perceived of Malaga was not exactly appealing or attractive.

However, the ancient city, charmingly situated in a bay, has much potential which gradually is being strengthened with cultural activities of broad nature in addition to the typical sun and sand offer.

Recently has been created a new space in Malaga, Pier One, with which the city has gained a lot more attractive. Formerly, the harbour area was a fenced area with restricted access and separate from the city. After extensive work, has been created a space of 14,000 square meters with a modern design that connects the historic centre and the Park of the Palms to the cruise terminal.

Along this space by the sea there is a shopping and leisure area, restaurants and there are also activities and facilities to entertain children; thus the area is ideal for a walk or to enjoy the gastronomic offer by the sea. The shops are open from 10 am to 10 pm Monday to Saturday (closed Sundays). Pier One has a large underground parking area.

Those visitors who are planning to arrive at Malaga by cruise or by train and want to hire a car, well now’s the time. Malagacar.com are extending their services and are now offering car hire Malaga train station, where a representative of the company will pick you up and comfortably take you to your hired vehicle. If you arrive on a cruise, Malagacar.com are also offering car hire Malaga port, where, again, you will be picked up by a staff member and taken to your hired vehicle. Of course, the Malaga airport car hire service is still running, so if on the other hand you land in Malaga by plane, the procedure to book and confirm your reservation is the same as always.

What really is outstanding is the continuous expansion of the company that at the same time maintains the customer’s positive critics. It’s, without a doubt, the best option for any visitor who doesn’t want to risk going through a bad experience during their holiday.

Steps to follow when booking online

Whatever way of transport you use to get to Malaga, whether it’s the airport, train station, cruise port, etc., the booking procedure is very simple and safe, so safe that you won’t even have to take your credit card out of your wallet, and you can relax as you won’t have to memorise your card details either as it’s simply not required!

The only simple step to do is to visit the Malagacar.com website and book online using the form or calling the telephone number that appears where the operators offer assistance in both English and Spanish.

Advantages of hiring a car without a credit card

There are many advantages, but of course the main one is the peace of mind of not having to type in the card’s number anywhere; another one is that there is no cancellation fee and, on top of this, the vehicles are brand new and the client’s general opinion is excellent. However, don’t forget to carry your credit card with you because although it wasn’t needed for booking online, it will be required when you pick up your vehicle.

Malagacar Fuel Policy

While other companies include a full tank of petrol that you may not even end up consuming entirely, or others that offer the tank completely empty, Malagacar.com offer half a tank of petrol so you can drive off with the tranquillity of knowing that you’ll reach your destination without having to worry about the risk of breaking down on the way.

This is probably the most important part when deciding to place our trust in a service we are going to hire for the first time; luckily, as I previously mentioned, the customer’s general opinion of Malagacar.com is excellent.

Enjoy your holidays without worries in Malaga and the Costa del Sol.

The expansion of the cruise terminal in Malaga port ends ahead of schedule

The expansion of the cruise terminal in the port of Malaga will be a reality sooner than expected. The opening will be almost one year earlier and it may receive in May 2011 the first cruises.

Initial estimates were for 2012, but given the pace of traffic in Malaga, which has become the star of the ports due to its growth, its responsibles want the facility to full capacity for the next season.

The new phase of the terminal occupies a third of its total area, with a total of new 7,714 square meters on two floors.

This expansion of the terminal will be used especially to embarking and disembarking passengers. A new feature will be a reception so that the accompanying persons of the cruise passengers may enter the premises at the time of saying goodbye or picking up passengers. Similarly, the new building will have a large baggage area.

Regarding the cruise traffic, the port of Malaga will close the year with 680,000 cruise passengers, representing a growth of 40% over the previous year. Thus it will close the year with a total of 320 stops, nearly twenty more than last year and almost a hundred more than in 2007. The port expects to receive 750,000 passengers in 2011, of which 35% embark and / or arrive in Malaga.
