BENAHAVIS TORRE LEONERA PARK TO THE GUADALMINA RESERVOIR
This walk begins at the Leonera Park in Benahavis and proceeds past the Sports Centre and enters the picturesque Dragonfly Trail along the Guadalmina river to the Benahavis Reservoir. The walk then circumnavigates the reservoir and leads back into Benahavis centre where refreshments can be enjoyed prior to the descent to the parking area.

ON THE LA QUINTA TRAIL
The walk is a mixture of seaside and countryside. The sea views of the Paseo give way to tree-lined broad boulevards and then farmland before reaching the outskirts of Nueva Andalucia.
40 m Ascent
BENAHAVIS AQUEDUCT WALK
This is a shorter version of one of the the most popular walks in the programme with stunning views of the Angosturas Gorge and Guadalmina River. The subsequent walk along the aqueduct is both peaceful and picturesque. An experience that should not be missed. Bring refreshments… there is no half-way coffee-house or facilities.
73 m Ascent
SAN PEDRO TO CORAL BEACH
The walk combines healthy exercise on the San Pedro Paseo and subsequent boardwalk with a tour of the Puerto Banus waterfront and Marina and their adjacent restaurants and luxury stores. It terminates at the more humble Coral Beach for refreshments before returning.

A STROLL INTO BENAHAVIS
