If you want to miss the sail from the UK and avoid Gibraltar, some ships use Malaga (Marella) as a home base. Other Mediterranean cruises often visit the port.  If you have done Malaga, then Mijas is a beautiful mountain town just twenty minutes away  and worth a visit. Take a look at Jeans great film guide.

Malaga surprised us because we thought we knew it. Previously we had used it many times as a gateway to the Spanish beaches, know for sun and sand as well as some wonderful towns!

What is in the 5 Euro tour? If you arrive on a cruise ship the bus will almost certainly drop you off at the town hall, and you must go inside. It is a very ornate building, very proud, and amazingly almost untouched by war. The tour locations, as seen on our film, are well worth the 5 Euro, plus...

One of the best ways to see Bruges is on a simple and very cheap Canal Boat tour because it cuts through this UNESCO World Heritage city and introduces you to its cultural, architectural and historical importance.
