The new wooden walkway is open and already is well-used. No longer do you have to walk on the sand to connect with the walkway or Paseo Marítimo to San Pedro. You can now walk from Puerto Banus to San Pedro without any detours or getting sand in your shoes. The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, even came to officially open it.
The mayor pointed out that the initiative, “responds to the desire of local Government to improve the connection of the 27 km of coastline and thereby, guarantee a huge Paseo Marítimo.” She also reiterated that work will soon begin on the new stretch, between Ventura del Mar and Guadaiza, to extend the promenade through to San Pedro Alcántara, and that work is also being done on the project for the extension of the Paseo Marítimo towards Las Chapas.
The walkway was constructed by the Town Council of Marbella between Avenida Lola Flores and the Gray D’Albion building, in Puerto Banús. You can access it between the Belabola Hotel and Gray Dálbion bulding. As the route takes you in front of the Ocean Club, I am guessing that during the summer months the club itself will become a tourist attraction.
