The New Boardwalk Running Along Mijas Costa

Boardwalk from Marbella and La Cala de Mijas, and Beyond!

Now well and truly established, the Boardwalk along Mijas Costa has been a great success!  Running right in front of El Ocenao, the Boardwalk has brought many visitors to the Mijas Costa area and more specifically, down to the coast.

El Oceano guests can now leave the gardens and terraces of the hotel directly on to the boardwalk.  It’s a great opportunity for a gentle stroll along our beautiful coastline and with La Cala de Mijas little more than 10 minutes away, it’s our guests opportunity to take a wander to the quiet and charming – but quickly growing – town of La Cala.

When first opened, the wooden walkway was a little inundated with cyclists, but thankfully, that has been dealt with, so no more scraped shins as they zoom past.  Now a more quiet promenade, the boardwalk is the best way to see this beautiful part of Mijas Costa.

‘Senda Litoral de Malaga’, The Boardwalk

The ‘Senda Litoral de Malaga’ (Malaga Coastal Path) runs for an estimated 163km, following the entire coast of Málaga province from Manilva to Nerja. Mostly complete, with small parts waiting to be finalised, the Boardwalk is a long-distance path and a major tourist attraction for Mijas Costa, the Costa del Sol, and for Andalucia.  (From

Initially open to all, cyclists have now been restricted to certain times on certain days.  We’re happy about this.  Although the Boardwalk should, of course, be open to all, there was a problem with hoards of cyclists whizzing by at high speeds, while perhaps less mobile users were subjected to scraped legs as the speeding wheel sped by.  This has no changed and the Boardwalk is a significantly more quiet walk.  Popular with local families and tourists alike, it offers easy access to the various small towns and developments along the coast line, which before may have been a little difficult to get to.

El Oceano Hotel is Right on the Boardwalk

From El Oceano, you can take a very pleasant stroll in either direction.  Head west and, within 15 minutes, you’ll be in the increasingly popular town of La Cala de Mijas.  Markets are the focus of this pretty little town.  You’ll find organic products at the markets on the main street and the larger market at the back of the town (5 minutes stroll from the center).

Head east and you’ll may find yourself in Cabopino.  A small marina and port, Cabopino is a wonderful place to spend an easy afternoon.  With various bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, Cabopino is a marina and community with some very impressive boats.  Perhaps not quite Puerto Banus, but very worth while visiting.

Once you’ve enjoyed your day out on Mijas Costa, return to El Oceano to relax for a while, maybe take a shower, then prepare for the evening’s entertainment!!  All part of the ‘El Oceano Experience’!

Cabopino - Along the Boardwalk from El Oceano Hotel


Cabopino is a quiet Marina situated between Marbella and Benalmadena. This is a much smaller port than Benalmadena with its own truly Mediterranean style. It is often overlooked by the tourists mainly because it is not visible from the road, but like all the costal Marinas it has some very good restaurants and bars, as well as a lovely beach and golf courses.  (from
