- Caminito del Rey

Caminito del Rey, is a spectacular hiking trail where you walk along a path against the cliff. In 1901, the need arose for a path to transport stuff between Chorrow Falls and Gaitanejo Falls for the construction and maintenance of the hydraulic power plants on both sides of the falls. After four years of hard work, the path was opened in 1905 after which it became known by its current name " el caminito del rey": the king's path. The rest of its history is told by the guides of the Caminito del rey themselves. They also take you into a piece of nature they tell you a bit about.

The King's Path is around the river "el Chorro" Part of this walk you walk on a narrow path above a gorge. The cliffs are about 400 metres high. The views are stunning and you won't want to stop taking photos. However, don't forget to look around!

Although it was years in the making, much-needed renovation began in 2013. By spring 2015, the trail was ready and safe enough to open to the general public. Wherever possible, old parts of the concrete path were refurbished. In many places, the choice was made to build a new wooden path above the old one. The path has been transformed from the most dangerous route to a safe walk, but it is still spectacular.

- Barranco Blanco

Barranco Blanco is a beautiful piece of nature located between Alhaurín el Grande and Coín. In this hiking area you will find a waterfall, originating from the Alaminos River , also known as the Río de las Pasadas, which runs through lush vegetation, until it flows into the sea at Fuengirola.

Let yourself slide down the rope, climb on the rocks, swim through the cave and walk through the mangrove! The barranco blanco is a great to do with your family with children 5 years old onwards. Slightly younger is also possible, but then mum and dad will need some courage and help the kids with climbing the rocks. 

There is no entrance fee at the Barranco blanco. Note: Between June and September, you cannot get to the start of the route by car. A 20- to 30-minute walk from the parking area to get to the start of the route is then necessary.

The Barranco Blanco is a 20-minute drive from Finca la Libertad.
