BENAHAVIS HIGH WALK

BENAHAVIS HIGH WALK
country Walk

This is a lovely walk starting at the Benahavis reservoir, then heading inland following the river, but with very little shade. The ground is stoney, so perhaps more a medium than easy walk, with gradients in places.

Due to limited parking the meeting point is at the Carpark by the church 2 kms before entering Benahavis and then car sharing to the starting point, but it is possible to also meet at the reservoir.

CHARCO DE LA VIRGEN – TOLOX

CHARCO DE LA VIRGEN – TOLOX
country Walk

This is an out and back walk starting at the Fuente Amargosa Health Spa in Tolox. Although this needs an extra half hour’s drive to the start of the walk, the drive is scenic and the walk, although shorter than usual, is well worth it

A hill walk in the same area of Tolox will be taking place on the same day so there will be an opportunity for walkers from both groups to meet up for pre-Christmas refreshments in the Venta Umami after the walk.
