The Alboran Sea in Malaga
Imagine sailing on a crewed catamaran with friends, a light breeze, crystal clear sky and the sun is about to set. Then, just take a pause from cruising for a swim in the open sea followed by a sundowner.
5 Pictures that prove sometimes life is just perfect.
Catamaran tours on the Malaga coast
Onboard you through an exceptional natural and gastronomic experience. The best scenery, with views on the Andalusian coastline, is undoubtedly at the time of sunset.
Other options are:
- A tour around the Maro-Cerro Gordo Cliffs Nature Reserve, the park has small coves and cliffs. Here you can go snorkelling with corals, sea sponges and colourful fish.
- Or enjoy an onboard meal with seafood paella and fresh lobsters from La Caleta.
Caleta de Velez
Although Caleta de Velez is just a dot on the Malaga map, it has one of the most important fishing ports in the whole of Andalusia. Annual sales of prawns, cod, red mullet, shellfish and octopus now surpass 5 million kilos. But, unfortunately, public access to the fish market and auction is prohibited.
We took a two-hour sunset tour and paid 25 euros per person for the privilege; one hour will only set you back 15 euros. The company is based in the harbour of La Caleta de Velez in the province of Malaga (Spain).
For some post-tour fine dining, head to restaurant Chinchin Puerto next to the office. Parking is free. The town is 35 kilometres away from Malaga capital. Take the N-340 to the coast and head for the port.
