  • El Caminito Del Rey, can be done with or without a guide, but I recommend that at least the first time, do it with a guide. Are wide minutes nice walk with beauties to appear around us every step. Fauna, Flora and the rock formations that line our way are admirable. The guide I got (Mr. Cosme) is a sympathy at all levels. If you are in Malaga or near enjoy and select the your visit. Well worth the expense.

  • Lovely walk, stunning gorge, and walkways. Finding a parking space was a pain - I would park at the end of the walk and get the shuttle bus back to the start when I do it again. About half an hour walk from the road to the starting point, then half an hour faffing about until it was our slot. We did the actual walk in an hour, but we were going very fast as it was cold in January, and we wanted to get back to the beach. There were a few places to stop along the walk and would be lovely to have picnic here. Contrary to the official website, they don't supply rucksacks, so bring your own. Also bring a torch for the tunnel from the road to the starting point. Nothing dangerous about it, though it probably isn't for people who are genuinely scared of heights.
  • A great walk with one of the best scenery. Head to the north end and go through the tunnel and to the right. A 2.5km wall will get you to the entrance. Ticket prices are €10 and €1.50 for return bus if you want a lift back to where you left the car. All you need to then do is walk and enjoy the view. It’s very safe and you could relax knowing there are no chances of anything going wrong. The left over of the previous route is visible at places but that’s for experienced climbers with harnesses in olden day’s. Finish off at the south and board the bus to return to your car park. Head down to the lake for a dip in the pool if you like something refreshing before heading back.
  • We loved, Caminito Del Rey, the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the end they keep telling you buses are 200 meters, then up 300 meters up, they are good ways from when you get off the trail. Overall, amazing! I highly recommended everyone should go at least once!!!
  • Very disappointed! We park our car in the caminito's parking and we went there. Our entrance was at 15:00 but what no one told us is that you had 2 km to walk before arriving to the entrance, with my bad foot we arrive around 3:20 there and it was close, they wouldn't let us in! They were so desperate to go home that a kind help wouldn't be in theirs plans! So I've lost 11.50€ X 4 coming from London. The caminito's parking guy didn't even say anything! We didn't even get any refund for the parking, 2€ X 2 cars.
  • An amazing place. Beautiful views. The pathway is not difficult to walk through so everyone can go there, maybe not necessarily very young children. It may be difficult to buy an individual ticket because there are many excursions there, so you need to buy it in advance.
