Coín – Barranco Blanco – 50 minutes

This nature reserve can be found between Alhaurin El Grande and Coín. Barranco Blanco is one of the most adventurous hiking routes that you can do in the Coín region. It’s a little paradise on earth! There are thousands of different types of green vegetation. The contrast with the white rocks is magnificent. Here you also have crystal clear water from the Río Alaminos which you can walk through. Most of the time you have two options for this beautiful hiking route. Either you hike across the water and on the rocks through the small river or you go alongside it via a tiny path through the bushes.

Tolox – Charco de la Virgen – 1 hour

Just outside of the village of Tolox, in the vicinity of the Sierra De Las Nieves, is the Río Grande. The destination Charco de la Virgen is a crystal clear waterhole that’s been supplied by a waterfall of more than 20 meters high. You can swim in it and the hiking route is about 5 km back and forth.

Nerja – Río Chillar – 1 hour

Visit the Nerja region and cross the Río Chillar. This 17 km walk will often make your feet wet, but it is definitely worth it! You can choose to walk a part of it, but the further you enter the gorge, the more beautiful and adventurous the path becomes. Along the way you see magnificent rocks, natural pools where you can swim and so many more wonders of nature.

Arriate, Málaga – Gargante y Arroyo de la Ventilla – 1 hour, 10 minutes

Throughout the year there’s a large diversity of birds present in the gorge of Arroyo de la Ventilla, among which the majestic eagle-owl, but also forest owls, barn owls, kestrels, buzzards or kingfishers. Among the mammals are foxes, genets, badgers and weasels, as well as a significant number of amphibians, reptiles, arachnids, molluscs, crabs (nearly extinct) and trout in the water environments. There runs a path of about 6 kilometres throughout the gorge with its beautiful and typical fauna and flora. Don’t hesitate to explore and maybe you’ll spot one of the aforementioned species.

Canillas de Aceituno – El Saltillo – 1 hour, 10 minutes

This mountain hike is almost 9 km long and begins on top of the village of Canillas de Aceituno. Here you walk on the border between the Granada and Málaga provinces in the nature reserve of the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama.

You begin the hike at the plaza near the village’s main road where the restaurant Asador La Maroma is located. From there you take the steep steps upwards. You keep to the right and keep going up. At the very top of the village you don’t take the wide stone steps, but you take the sand path to the right for a couple hundred meters and you will see a concrete aqueduct. Here begins the actual hiking route. At the end of the linear hike you have little waterfalls and a small oasis with clear, cool water. That’s the end point and now you have to go back via the same route. As always doing the same path the other way around is not the same and once again you’ll have other beautiful views.

Since October 26, 2020 there’s a new suspension bridge of 52 meters long (1 of the 3 longest suspension bridges in Spain) in order to cross over towards the other white village of Sadella.






Alhama de Granada – 1 hour, 25 minutes

The white village of Alhama de Granada is situated on an enormous rocky offshoot surrounded by a deep gorge, the Tajo de Alhama, where the Alhama river flows through. You have a magnificent panorama of both the village and the river surroundings. From the village square with its grand church begins a hiking route through the profound gorge via a well-passable path.

In the old neighbourhood, amongst a network of narrow and steep streets are this village’s most remarkable monuments. In the proximity of Alhama de Granada you can enjoy beautiful landscapes of red-brown rocks, vineyards, yew and pine trees.
