The majority of walks are aimed at the adventurous leisure walker, people who will, on the whole, have some experience of hiking in mountains, are happy to invest a certain amount of effort for a corresponding reward. Covering the best-preserved stretch of coastline, the prettiest villages, and most spectacular mountains, Walk! Costa del Sol explores the Axarquia region east of Malaga, an area blessed with grand summits, dizzying pinnacles, dramatic crags, deep ravines, delightful streams, stunning views, and the finest coves on the Costa del Sol, and all of it knitted together by a network of paths, trails, tracks and lanes so beguiling that walking is by far the best way to explore this lovely landscape.
THE COAST: TORRE DEL MAR, TORROX COSTA, NERJA, MARO are well-placed for accessing the itineraries between Canillas de Aceituno and Competa. THE MOUNTAINS: THE SIERRAS DE TEJEDA and ALMIJARA The Sierra is a discrete massif defined by cliffs, gullies and gorges, and culminating in the Iberian Peninsula's westernmost 2000 metre summit (La Maroma, Walk 35), while the Sierra Almijara comprises numerous mini-ranges separated by canyons. The traditional dividing point between the two sierras is Puerto de Competa, which we visit in Walk 36.
The joys of these mountains are manifold, including bulbous karstic domes and vertiginous pinnacles, dramatic cliffs draped with ragged crags and grand ridges dominating the glittering blue sea; there are uplands patched with ancient pastures and dotted with the ruins of remote cortijos (farmhouses), there are terraces stippled with olive and almond trees, hillsides swaddled in a buttery blanket of yellow-flowering shrubs, valleys flanked by shady forests of conifer and cork oak, and fabulous ravines twisting between towering chicanes (known as cahorros) and tipping over spectacular waterfalls into deep plunge pools, all accessible within 15 minutes of the coast. THE WHITE VILLAGES The Pueblos Blancos of Andalusia with their whitewashed walls and red-tiled roofs are justly famous and the Axarquia does not disappoint in this respect. The best known pueblos blancos and the main gateway destinations for walkers are Competa and Frigiliana.
West of Competa are some of the region's prettiest villages, the two Canillas (Aceituno and Albaida), Sedella, Salares and Archez. Walk! Costa del Sol (Axarquia) together with Costa del Sol Tour & Trail Map will give you a series of adventures you'll never forget.Each walk is fully described and accompanied by a detailed map and colour photos, plus an information bar that helps you easily choose the right routes for you, based on difficulty, distance, time needed, ascents and descents and more.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
