We visited here whilst staying in Malaga and really loved it. It is a completely unique experience where you spend most of the time walking through the river to get to waterfalls that you can swim in. We drove from Malaga, it was a 40-50 minute drive. We put these coordinates into the gps 36°46'18.4"N 3°52'45.9"W and found it with... More

This is truly a beautiful experience! If you come to Nerja by car, be sure to do some research before you go, so that you can use the uppermost parking before you start your hike. Although I wore sandals, I recommend a bit more rugged footwear. It's also recommended to bring water and some food, as you will spend at... More

One of the best things in my life! Exhausting at moments especially in the way back, but so so beautiful! Recommending for everyone!

This is a superb walk - fantastic views and a great experience walking through the cool river waters on a hot day. We parked at the bottom of Calle Picasso in Nerja so had a bit of a walk before reaching the truly beautiful areas (if we had known we could have turned right along a dirt track to reach... More

On our recent rip to Spain, we were going to stop here en route from Granada to Malaga and do the hike. We could not find where the hike started so we stopped in at the information office in Nerja. This is actually a very well-known hike and is in the first page of a hiking booklet that Nerja publishes.... More

This is a great place, but before I get to that, the thing that had me scratching my head was how to get there. Internet sites have all these vague references, like "it's just past the old cement plant." That wasn't very helpful to me because I'm not local. So, I thought I would provide directions to make your life... More

Close to Nerja one of the most beautiful places to walk along the river with your foots inside the water. Fresh, natural and beautifull walk up to the river during 3 or 4 hours till arrive to the waterfall

A very extraordinary hike that I absolutely can recommend for every one! One of our best experiences in Spain. The hike will take up to a day, depending on how far you want to walk. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes that you won’t mind get wet.

The weather was perfect for a walk along the river. Although initially quite dry (we left from a point behind the bus station), the river began to flow after about 15 minutes into the walk. There were relatively few people there, and there were only locals that we encountered. Beautiful scenery and lots of opportunity to walk through the water... More
