Malaga achieved its greatest tourist splendor at the beginning of the 20th century, coinciding with the establishment
of a significant British industrial settlement. It was inspired in the South England seaside resort model and it
supposed a complete renewal of the surrounding landscape of the old city.
While tourism in the city was declining, the Costa del Sol region consolidated as a mass sun and sand tourism
destination. Nowadays, this region has become less competitive regarding new areas and Malaga is reemerging as a
tourist city based in culture, urban life and cruise tourism.
This paper focuses on the remodelling of the old urban tourist structures and on the features that make possible to
attract a significant group of visitors, such as the port, the airport and other transport means. The public
administrations, private groups and associations that have been involved in the creation of a renovated tourist
resource are analyzed throughout the text.
