Delightful Coastal Walks

Discover the villages, towns, and mountains of the Axarquia region, east of the city of Malaga.

Walk beneath the Moorish arches of a hilltop fortress town, trek high into the Natural Park under a pine forest canopy, and visit a ridgetop monument dedicated to sailors of the past! Let yourself be immersed in this beautiful coastal landscape. 

How difficult?

If you are a regular walker, there should be nothing challenging on any of these walks. The walks are rated moderate, with sections that may be steep and include some rough terrain underfoot.

When we set out each day, our walks are between 12 and 16 kilometres, with approximately 500 to 700 metres of ascent.

When to come

This holiday is available from January to May and then from September to December. The weather is generally consistent in those months, but both in May and September, the temperature can be near 30 degrees.

Are you unsure of when to come, or do you have dates that you prefer? Please look at our available dates; we have a wide range throughout the year.
