Nerja council held a meeting yesterday with the head of the Coasts department, Angel González to discuss the possible re-opening of the Paseo de los Carabineros cliff path, that joins Calahonda Beach (next to the Balcon de Europa) to Burriana beach. The path has been closed off for years after rock falls made the path too dangerous to use. Although the path has been walled off at each end, it can easily be reached from either of the beaches when the sand is in the right place, however the overhanging rocks above make this a risky place to be.

The path was surveyed back in May 2012 to study if it was feasible to re-open the path, and now, nine months later, the council is planning to draft a plan for the coast departments approval. The new path would partially follow the route of the existing footpath, but only be 200 metres in length, and would run further south, taking it away from the overhanging cliffs. The route would also have two view points and would be a round-trip, rather than connecting to Carabeo beach.

After yesterdays meeting, the councillors, the mayor and Angel González visited the footpath to see the situation first hand.
