It is 49kms from Málaga city and international airport and just a short drive from the Guadalteba lakes and El Chorro. The El Chorro area is one of the most important areas in Europe for rock climbing and related outdoor activities. In recent years the area has benefited from substantial investment from the Spanish government and Europe to redevelop an old walk way known as the “Caminito del Rey” and this has resulted in an important influx of tourists to the area throughout the year.
