Walking on the Senda Litoral between La Cala de Mijas and Cabopino
Why not take a long walk between La Cala De Mijas to Cabopino Beach. An hour and a half if you walk directly and all day if you stay to swim and eat. If you find it hard to walk back, there are buses from Cabopino to Funegirola that stop at the A7 motorway.
The Costa del Sol stretches from Manilva in the southwest to Nerja in the northeast, a total of 184 kilometres. A large unified promenade is under construction, called the Senda Litoral, and one of the most beautiful stretches is the boardwalk at La Cala de Mijas. New sections of the Senda Litoral are inaugurated regularly and are reported to be 80 per cent complete. Many existing promenades are being linked by both bridges and boardwalks to make the entire coastline a walking or cycling route.
The walk starts at the old watchtower “El Torreón”, in the centre of La Cala de Mijas and walks on boardwalks and wooden bridges. The blue sea, bright blue sky and beautiful greenery are amazing. It is also fun to see all the houses on the frontline of the Mediterranean Sea. There are bars and restaurants all along the way, so combine the walk with a good lunch.
Almost at Cabopino you come to Calahonda which has a fantastic playa and restaurant and if you walk past the headland at Calahonda you can see an incredible sunset on an evening walk.
If you haven’t eaten during the walk, several nice restaurants await you at Cabopino and if you haven’t forgotten your swimming trunks, you can take a swim. There is also a small harbour with some shops and restaurants, well worth a visit.
