From Mijas to Estepona by seafront promenade

Paseo Maritimo

When the town councils of Mijas, Marbella and Estepona complete plans for their coastline walkways the three municipalities will be connected by a single promenade running for more than 50 kilometres.

The goal is to connect all three towns on the Costa del Sol via an uninterrupted paseo marítimo that local authorities believe will help boost tourism in all three of the popular resorts.

This coastal pathway is a genuinely fantastic way to travel between the large and small towns in this part of southern Spain and the walk is arguably the best way to see the beautiful shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Sea and coastal natural wildlife
This beautiful seaside paseo provides a perfect setting to observe a diverse array of plant and animal life as the Málaga coast is an area of great biodiversity within the Mediterranean region. The species that reside in the habitat along the path include life forms from the Atlantic Ocean, the subtropics of Northeast Africa and the Straits of Gibraltar. The varied landscape of beaches, cliffs, marshes and rivers provide the habitat for local flora and fauna, and a place for migratory animals to settle or spend time whilst on their seasonal travels.

Keep your eyes peeled for over 30 types of coastal plants, 100 different sea birds, 200 species of fish, 500 sea invertebrates, 150 varieties of seaweed and four kinds of turtles.

Cycling
The rules for cycling on the promenade vary from section to section and according to the rules of each town. In some areas, such as Estepona, cyclists are not allowed on the path at all and in others there are strict speed limits to consider. The regulations are clearly signposted and anyone with a bike should check at each stage of the route.

The Mijas to Estepona paseo is part of the Senda Litoral de Málaga (Málaga Coastal Path) a planned project to create a 180km path that will follow the entire coast of Malaga province from Manilva to Nerja. For updated information on every section of the walkway visit: www.sendalitoral.es/en/
