Great activity with an awesome guide. He knew how to communicate with the whole group, he explained to us and showed us as many things as possible during the hike. We were able to admire the plantations of various fruits. A small snack was offered to us before starting the activity. The hike was on very narrow paths (come with good shoes!). After walking, we came to a small otherwise inaccessible beach. We were alone and we enjoyed a good moment of relaxation while discovering the marine fauna with a diving mask. We loved being in the water and watching the fish! We then took the reverse route back to the van and back to Malaga. I really recommend this activity!

Very nice trip. We had guide Alfonso who took us with a van to the place where the tour starts. We started the tour with a lot of explanation about plants and fruit along which we walked. Afterwards the climb started to the private beach. 1 word for this: Blissful! Not a single person to be seen. The were able to snorkel and catch their breath. Afterwards we took the same path back with a lot of extra info from the guide. He joked a lot and told a lot. The return trip by car was also very familiar with a lot of information about Malaga and the region.

The kayak itself is good. But there is seems no communication between the driver and the centre. The pick-up van arrived early. The driver took a while to find the guy of the Centre, but no one came to explain to us . We were lost. It turned out I understand the group is a mix of customers from various platforms like hotel , walk-in.. etc. Also the instructor didn’t really speak English. And we are disappointed that we haven’t got the photos took by the instructor so far. I wish the communication could be better.

I just enjoyed everything... Nice tour Attractive friendly giving guide interesting information and details. and very nice place with amazing view ❤️❤️.. very Recommended!

Fantastic experience, Alfonso entertained us with lots of details about the area, farma and hippies. Also made sure we were safe at all times!
