Caminito del Rey: Malaga’s new attraction for thrill seekers opens soon

Caminito del Rey (King’s Walkway) in El Chorro.

THE Caminito del Rey (King’s Walkway) in El Chorro will be opening soon, providing thrills and breathtaking views to those brave enough to walk the path.

Head of Malaga Provincial Council Elias Bendodo has announced that the new tourist attraction, included in Lonely Planet’s top-ten new places to visit, will open at Easter and will be open from Tuesdays to Sundays. 

Although Bendodo said that the times the walkway will be open will vary for each season, he did not give exact times.

Visits to the walkway will be free, at least for the first few months while the provincial council manages it, but those who wish to visit will have to sign up online and helmets will be obligatory.

      A bit silly to only have an online option to reserve a pass to enter… What about the many, many people that will just turn up at the gate and be turned away because they didnt know they had to apply online…. Upto date news about the Caminito del Rey in English can be found at
      Also the rule about under 10’s not getting in rules out an awful lot of families… Shame really… That said, lets hope the project boosts the local economy that is badly needed in this area of Malaga province.

      A lovely area, but the Cafe there needs upgrading, and the toilet facilities are poor. Do not walk along this highway if you do not like heights. it will be scary for some people, and turning back would cause a problem fo those behind you

      Yes, a lovely area and there is in fact plenty of places to eat which all have toilets. You have the fantastic Garganta hotel at one end and the amazing hotel Posada at the reservoir end… Both have fantastic restaurants.
      The finished footpath is not like it was and I would say that yes, you could turn back if you were not aware of that problem.
