Construction and planning of the coastal path, Senda Litoral, continues. Now the areas around La Cala de Mijas, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Málaga are being developed.
Senda Litoral is a coastal path which will cover the entire Costa del Sol from La Duquesa to Nerja once it has been finished. Parts of the trail are already completed, while other parts are still at the planning stage.
Malaga municipality has just installed a temporary boardwalk along parts of the coastal path to connect Málaga with Torremolinos. It covers the area from Guadalmar to Arraijanal and passes the Parador del Malga golf course. The temporary boardwalk has cost 163,000 euros and provides easier access to the beach for the public and also makes it more attractive to walk, run or cycle along this section of the coast. The boardwalk will later be replaced by a broader permanent boardwalk that will be raised above ground level.
Large parts of the coastal path along Mijas Costa and Marbella are already finished, but there is no connection between Fuengirola and La Cala de Mijas at the moment. This week Mijas municipality announced that they have initiated the necessary bureaucratic processes in order to build this section of the coastal path. This particular stretch is about 5,3 km long and the price tag for this part of the coastal path is going to be around 2 million euros.
The entire coastal path is expected to be completed around the year 2020 and will then measure 184 km.
