A must-see on the list of the panoramic views in Málaga is AC Hotel by Marriott Málaga Palacio, a 4 star hotel with a rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the historic center as well as the port. Enjoy a drink or dinner and watch the sunset from rooftop. The prices are reasonable so you don’t need to worry even if you’re on a budget. The entrance is normally free of charge but be careful only on Saturdays because it’s 8€ (one drink included).
It is one of the highest rooftop terraces, which means it gets breezy, so take a jacket or shawl.
Address: Calle Cortina del Muelle, 1.
Another terrace is located a little lower than AC but it still offers impressive views – especially for Alcazaba and Gibralfaro. The entrance for the Batik hotel terrace is free, lower level has a restaurant where you can enjoy a meal with a view, upper level is a bar with wide selection of cocktails.
Addres: Calle Alcazabilla, 12
Montes de Málaga are a perfect choice when it comes to enjoying the panoramic views in Málaga. Monte Victoria is located just around 40 minutes walk from the city center, it’s a popular spot to enjoy the sunset or have a picnic. Don’t worry if you don’t have hiking experience because the way up is easy, most of the patch follows an old road.

The views form Monte San Antón are really impressive, you can see entire city from there as well as a large piece of the coastline. This one is more of a hike as San Antón is located a little further from the city center so you can take a bus either to El Palo (3 or 11) and walk from there (around 1,5h) or take the bus 29 that stops close to the hiking trail. This one is a little more challenging than Monte Victoria due to lose rocks so be sure to wear sport shoes. The best panoramic view is from the peak with a cross at the top.
