El Saltillo trail
A new hanging bridge made El Saltillo one of the hiking highlights of Andalucia. Before, El Saltillo was an unknown trail. Now more and more people are enjoying this free walking route.
El Saltillo has a suspension bridge of 54 meters which hangs 79 meters above the ground. On top of that, there are a couple of suspension bridges along the vertical cliff wall which definitely makes the hike worthwhile.
The hike is fairly easy until you get to the hanging bridge. This is where you get a steep section, but other than that the trail doesn’t have much elevation. You can turn around at the hanging bridge to make a shorter and easier hike. It’s a great day trip for the whole family and one of the best walks in Andalucia.
Spain is of course known for its delicious tapas dishes. And on the coast you can also enjoy the daily fresh fish that is brought ashore early every morning by the local fishermen. Be sure to try the 'fritura malaguena', typical of the province of Malaga.
