If you do not have a motorcycle or prefer to leave yours at home, and you feel like getting a grind along the Costa del Sol, a good option to tour the Costa del Sol is by renting a motorcycle. And one of the best places to do it is at Motoridays.com
In this post we will recommend some of the best areas of the Costa del Sol to make Motorcycles routes and make small cultural visits.
By motorcycle through the province of Malaga. Coastal path
You can start in Nerja, Torrox Costa and finish in Rincon de la Victoria, it is a highway route, very comfortable and fast. Enjoy the contrast of the mountain next to the beach and the wonderful beaches where you can stop for a swim if you go during the summer season.
It begins in Nerja, a charming coastal town, where the famous series “Summer Blue” was filmed. You can make a stop to see the Rock of the Virgin and Christ of the Sea, a small sanctuary at the edge of the sea. If you continue the road that borders the beach you reach the Ruins of the Torrecilla, a watchtower designed by the Nasrids in the thirteenth century.
You can also visit the famous Boat of Chanquete, the old town and the Nerja Caves. Nearby is Maroma, one of the most visited mountain peaks by walkers. If you go with time and you like country walks, it is a good option to stretch your legs. And in the same area there is another
charming village Frigiliana, where you can taste its exquisite cuisine and ride a motorcycle or walk through its steep streets.
Follow the highway and reach Torrox, take the exit of the highway to see the Torrox Lighthouse, where you can enjoy incredible views of the coast of Malaga. On Sundays the Lighthouse is closed.
Arrive at Rincon de la Victoria, where you must make a stop to eat in one of the beach bars, sitting in the sand of the beach with that smell of sea and unmistakable spit of the place. It is a large coastal town with very welcoming people who have a beautiful walk along the cliffs.
On a motorcycle through Malaga. Mountain Route
We invite you to visit the Montes de Málaga very close to the city centre, a road with incredible curves for the enjoyment of good bikers. They are a mountain range located 5 kilometres north of the city.
You can start your route from Antequera to enjoy the unique “Peña de los Enamorados”, also known as “la Cabeza del Indio”, a mountain located at the foot of Antequera. Climb the Torcal to make a stop at its visitor centre and observe from its viewpoint the splendour of the mountain and views of this unique natural landscape.
Start the descent of the Torcal and head towards Villanueva de la Concepción and take the Casabermeja-Málaga crossing, a road surrounded by an agricultural landscape, shot with mountains and streams that cross under the road. Continue to Casabermeja to visit the peculiar Cemetery of San Sebastián, declared a historical-artistic monument.
Continue the highway to Colmenar, where through the A-7000 road you will enter the Montes de Málaga Natural Park, which takes you to the heart of the Malaga capital. On this road you can enjoy steep slopes and mountains covered with pine trees that surround the road, reaching the Puerto de León mountain pass, where you can eat something in the many road sales that you will find throughout the crossing. Very close to the viewpoint is the monumental Fuente de la Reina, where you can make a stop to rest and cool off with the water from its source.
Following the descending path, enjoy the curves, that pine smell and reach the centre of the city. Where you can rest, eat, stay and enjoy the great tourist and cultural offer that the city of Malaga has.
