  • The walkway and cliffs are situated between the Mirador del Bendito, next to Carabeíllo and Burriana beaches

Work is under way to stabilise the walkway and cliffs between the Mirador del Bendito next to Carabeíllo and Burriana beaches in Nerja. The walkway was closed 15 years ago due to concerns over safety and falling rocks from the cliffs. It is hoped that at least part of the walkway will be open to the public again soon.

Further improvements to popular tourist areas are also ongoing; some 900 new plants and flowers are being planted on the Balcón de Europa. The new plants, all of which are white and purple in colour, have been chosen due to their resistance to heat and durability.
