REVERSE ISTÁN – PUERTO DE LOS BARRACONES
This is the reverse of the revised Country Walk in and around Istan. Walking from the Hotel Altos de Istán, the route goes down into the village and out the other side along a contour track and then gradually climbs up to a good road that heads south and leads back to Moorish irrigation channels that lead back to the village. There is a steep climb back to the Hotel carpark

The walk “las canteras azules”starts by taking an upwards path through a pine forest. After a pause at the top of the incline, the trail follows a single file, open, path high around the edge of a deep valley with steep scree slopes on the left (vertigo sufferers beware). There are fine views back to sea near Fuengirola.
