Section 06 | Marbella – Fuengirola
Crossing the Dunes of Artola
The sixth EuroVelo8 stage covers 34 km joining two of the major tourist capitals of the Costa del Sol: Marbella and Fuengirola. During this stage, as in the previous ones, stretches coincident with the A7 road and adapted stretches of the Málaga Coastal Path mix. Nearly at the middle of the route, by the beaches of Cabopino, appears the impressive stretch of wooden footbridges built over the Natural Monument of the Dunes of Artola, a protected natural site dotted with amazing moving dunes. Almost finishing the stage, at the entrance to Fuengirola, stands the old Muslim fortress, the castle of Sohail.
