A SCENIC cliff path that has been officially closed for years could be reopened. The Paseo de los Carabineros cliff path that links Calahonda beach to Burriana is to be surveyed by Nerja council.

It is one of the first steps towards the reopening of a section of the path. Once the study is complete, it will be incorporated into a plan that will be sent to the Coastal department for approval.

The footpath has been officially closed for many years because of dangerous rock falls. The Costas department, which has responsibility for the footpath, has installed barriers and signs warning of the dangers. 

Even though it is officially closed, many people just climb over the barriers, or join the path from points that are not blocked off and walk along the footpath. 

The entrances to the footpath can be seen at the western end of Burriana beach and also from Carabeo and Calahonda beaches.
