Climbing La Concha


Fun Marbella Activities Kids stuff

Take a small rucksack with water and snacks, suncream, hats and an extra layer of clothing and change of socks (this stops the blisters!) and of course a camera to capture all those great views.

La Concha, the large mountain that overlooks Marbella and the surrounding area, has been climbed by many over the years so we've put together some information to let you know how you can do it too.
Firstly, you need to make your way to what we call base camp, the Refugio de Juanar Hotel just 10 minutes from Marbella up the road to Ójen. There are great picnic spot areas all around here too and it's easy to park so it makes the perfect starting and finishing landmark.
From this point, you can select one of several different routes all varying in difficulty and time to walk.
If you are with younger children, the walk to the summit is really a little too challenging, and at times dangerous, but there is a perfect route with gentle inclines that takes you through the olive groves and forest along to the viewpoint (Fin de Sendero). A gentle amble gets you there in an hour and a half.
The walk to the summit of La Concha will take you around four hours, less if you are fitter with the right footwear!
It's difficult to give all the information you need for each individual party here, so if you are planning on taking a walk up La Concha, just drop us an email with any questions and we will give you our very best local advice on how to go about it!
