Walking Holidays on the Costa del Sol

wanderer-455338_1280Did you know that the Costa del Sol is a great place to walk? It’s a big part of the culture to “pasear” or stroll down your local seaside promenade, particularly on a Sunday before or after lunch. Estepona, Marbella and Fuengirola are great places to get involved in this lovely tradition and there are loads of great options if you love walking.

There are two great walking events taking place in Marbella in October where you can walk as a group, meet new people and have a great time. The first is the Neon Night Marbella a charity walk taking place on October 3rd, walking from the Hard Rock Café in Puerto Banus at 9pm and following an easy 3km walk, dressed in neon kits. It’s a fun, sociable, fundraising walk and suitable for all ages and abilities. Tickets to take part are 10€ and all funds raised will be donated to children’s charities.

The second walking event is Marbella 4Days Walking from 8-11 October. This is a great challenge which people travel from all over Europe to undertake. It costs just 40€ to take part in all 4 days or 12.50€ if you want to just do one or two days. The challenge is to walk routes of 20 or 30 km per day around Marbella for 4 days, a real achievement, a great way to see Marbella and also meet likeminded people and enjoy fun activities. Families and kids can also take part in two, shorter 6km routes on 10th and 11th October, which is a great way for all the family to get involved in walking.

If these events don’t fit with your schedule, then we can recommend the hiking in the countryside just inland from the coast. The picturesque village of Mijas Pueblo has wonderful hiking routes around the back of the village, which are rated by difficulty level and can be done on your own by following the signs or by joining one of the guided weekly walks which the Town Hall puts on. These walks take place each Saturday, leaving from the tourist office at 9am and taking various routes which normally last around 3 hours. Check out the walking programme here.

There are excellent walks around Istan, Ojen and Ronda to name a few, and there are several good companies offering private, guided walks and tours to ensure everything goes smoothly. There are also a few hiking groups you can join, such as the group which does weekly walks around Manilva every Sunday.

For those people who really want to push themselves there are two amazing options. One is the newly opened Caminito del Rey, a trail along a gorge which is not for the faint hearted or vertigo sufferers, but something which is a real experience. Please note you need to book a slot to do this as the numbers are strictly limited. You can find all the info and how to book the Caminito del Rey here.

But the biggest challenge has to be walking (also climbing in places) La Concha, the iconic mountain just behind Marbella. There is a hike from the Refugio de Juanar just outside Marbella which is approximately a 5 hour round trip and a distance of 11km. This is a challenging hike and not something that should be completed without adequate supplies or in bad weather. Here’s a good description of the route.

Whichever route you choose, we can provide great holiday rental properties where you can rest your weary feet and relax. We have properties very close to the hikes, or within the main towns so you can head out each day and do different routes. Marbella is probably the best base if you want to try several different routes, with Istan, Ojen and of course La Concha nearby to tackle. This stunning Marbella 3 bedroom apartment in a brilliant central location within walking distance of the beach is a great luxury option including a Jacuzzi bath to ease any aches and pains. Check out the options and let us know where you’d like to base yourselves and we can find you a great rental property.
