The Guadalmina is one of those typical short rivers of the Western Costa del Sol District that begin to flow in the mountain ranges close and parallel to the coast. It flows through a very narrow gorge called “Angosturas (narrow passes) del Guadalmina”, downstream from the village of Benahavis, surrounded by a very lush forest composed of willow, maritime pine, oleander, Phoenician juniper, great reed, tamarisk, mastic tree, bramble, fig tree, common smilax, grape, etc.

It is already hot in July and here we will have the opportunity to watch fantastic birds in the shade and even take a bath during our trip.
