Walking Coast To Coast in Andalucía: Day 1


A day of small beginnings on our 435 kilometer trek from Playa Maro on Spain’s Costa del Sol coast, following the Penibetic range of mountains westward to the coastal community of Bolonia, edging on the Atlantic Ocean.

Today’s start on that journey is a modest one. The morning is spent on a bus, transporting Gail and me from Málaga to our hotel near Cueva de Nerja. After a tour of the impressive caves, we head for Playa de Maro, the start of our long distance walk. The 2.2 kilometer stroll back to the caves will be the extent of our walk this day. Tomorrow, we will continue up to the mountain peaks, leaving seas and beaches behind until we return to the Atlantic coastline some 21 days from now.

  1. Hi. I am interested in this walk. Is it possible to have packs transported, at least on those days with 1000 metre climbs? Bye. Paul.

    1. Hi Paul. I don’t think there is a pack transfer service on this route. The author of the guidebook for this walk suggests the use of taxis to transfer bags and he includes the phone numbers and details for local taxis in his book, which is available here: https://www.cicerone.co.uk/the-andalucian-coast-to-coast-walk If you don’t speak Spanish, try to book accommodations where English I spoken and ask them to book the taxi for you. Good luck with your travels!
