Section 09 | Torre del Mar – Almuñecar
Cycling by the Cliffs of Maro
This ninth stage goes along 47 km connecting Torre del Mar and Almuñécar across the Axarquia region and the villages of Torrox and Nerja. Some of the most impressive landscapes are found in this EuroVelo8 stage. Departing from Torre del Mar and heading the N-340, a low-traffic road, the route reaches Nerja, a well-known village for its astonishing caves considered “Natural Cathedrals” and by the emblem of the popular TV series Verano Azul, Chanquete’s ship. From this point, the route returns to the N-340 road and drives along the Natural Area of the Cliffs of Maro – Cerro Gordo, the natural boarder between the provinces of Málaga and Granada which offers spectacular views of cliffs over the sea, beautiful beaches and quiet coves by the coast. Before arriving to the final destination of Almuñecar, the route crosses the peaceful village of La Herradura.
