Caminito del Rey Entrance Ticket

Discover Malaga’s raw and natural beauty in Caminito del Rey. You won’t waste a moment of your trip waiting in line as all entrance fees are included, so you can skip the crowds. You’ll discover remote landscapes, but feel completely safe as there is a linear pathway to follow. Walk across Desfiladero de los Gaitanes (Gaitanes Ravine), and access incredible viewpoints.

What to Expect

An exceptional natural environment that has been a mute witness of the history of industrialization in Málaga in the XIX-XX centuries, where you will be able to learn, apart from fauna interesting facts, the local flora and geology, curious facts about railroad pioneers and the electricity production.

The entrance is through the northern access and starts next to the parking Zone 4, through a long and narrow tunnel carved in the mountain which leads to a forest track that ends up in the Checkpoint at the entrance of Caminito del Rey.

The pathway has a total length of between 6 and 7 km depending on the chosen access. It is a linear pathway, so the return from the exit, located in the southern access, must be traversed by bus. There is also the option of parking in the southern access and taking the bus to the entrance.
It´s forbidden to come with children younger than eight and to come with shoes no appropiate to have a walk, specially flip-flops and helled shoes.
We recommend that you read before the rules of use published in the additional information.

Good experience

An amazing hike with spectacular scenery. Glad I did it, My one complaint is there is a real lack of signs along the route to actually get to the entrance. It is a 2.7 kilometre walk just to the entrance and hardly any signs. Also...More

Really spectacular

If you arrive by car, you can park near Restaurante El Kiosko. From here there is a path leading to the entrance – it’s 2-3 kilometers. There were no tickets left online but we went anyway and when we got to the entrance we only...More

We booked our tickets through Trip Advisor as on the official site all dates fro us were sold out. Trip Advisor used a local tour company and it was totally legitimate. I think the tour comapnies buy blocks of entrance... More

There are many resting spots before and after the cliffs. Take water and snacks, and take breaks if you are tired. I am in my 50's and not an athlete at all. Turning back after the cliffs is not possible, but also not... More

It seemed like 2.5 hours. We were going as fast as others who were not in a tour. The information offered was very interesting. We only got the tour because the other tickets were all gone. But glad it worked out that way. I... More
