Playgrounds on the Malaga coast

Parque de La Batería, Torremolinos

This is one of Malaga’s best playgrounds, since it has an artificial lake where boats can be hired for only €1. There is also a carousel whose entrance fee only costs 50 cents, a lighthouse where you can enjoy the best views of the Malaga coastline and a playground equipped with slides that will thrill any child.
Bear in mind that the queues to hire boats are usually quite long. We therefore recommend you go very early.
