Work has begun on the second phase of the Cabopino to Mijas section of Malaga’s coastal path to enable an Easter completion
This latest section to be constructed is 550 metres in length and will connect the port of Cabopino with Calle Playa. “The objective is to advance with the complete connection of the 27 kilometres of coastline,” said the mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, who added:
“We will end the legislature with more than four new kilometres and just under five more are needed to complete the entire promenade, which is undoubtedly one of the great tourist attractions of the town.”
According to Muñoz, agreements have been reached with residential organizations to avoid expropriation costs. “We aimed to obtain authorization from property owners and residents’ associations to access their areas while allowing them to retain ownership,” she explained.
Regarding the remaining five kilometres, the mayor stated that the town hall is awaiting authorizations from various entities, including Costas (the government department responsible for the Spanish coast) and environmental authorities, as well as from the property owners.
Muñoz also mentioned upcoming announcements for the Naviero and Don Carlos hotel areas, while the Los Monteros section is close to completion. The decision on the Real Zaragoza section, which includes sand dunes, is still pending.
The plan is to construct walkways similar to those in the Artola dunes. However, the project has been delayed due to concerns that the route encroaches on the Public Maritime Terrestrial Domain.
