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.

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

The 2 guys who did the tour were absolutely brilliant, took us to see the dolphins on the way back, we all loved the paddle boarding. They could not be more helpful

The driver was very kind, he waited for us for a long time due to the flight delay. Great service, well organized.

A very fun experience. We had a great time thanks for everything to the captain and the guide !!!!
