Pasarelas de Relleu

 

RELLEU – Lovers of walking and natural beauty will enjoy the Pasarelas de Relleu, a spectacular walking route comparable to the famous Caminito del Rey in Málaga.

This route in the province of Alicante offers a unique combination of adventure and beautiful landscape views. The Pasarelas de Relleu, consisting of a narrow path of wooden planks built against the wall of a ravine, offers breathtaking views from a height of 60 metres. This tourist attraction, which combines excitement and beauty, attracts visitors from far and wide.

The Pasarela de Relleu route

The 10-kilometre route starts in the village of Relleu, a half-hour drive from Villajoyosa and a 40-minute drive from Benidorm. You can find an informative panel at the town hall. The entire route is clearly marked with green-white signs and tracking posts. Although the hike may seem challenging, the trail is easily accessible to all the public. Visitors can enjoy walking trails through agricultural areas and almond orchards. You will also pass a historically valuable reservoir from the seventeenth century before reaching the wooden walkways.

Viewpoint with glass floor

One of the highlights of the Pasarelas de Relleu is a viewpoint with a glass floor. This is located over the entire length of 212 metres, and provides an extra dose of excitement. Due to the adventurousness of the narrow path on the rock face, it has been compared to the Caminito del Rey in the province of Málaga. After admiring the view, visitors return via the same route. The tour continues on an old donkey path, past historical sights such as a lime kiln, old irrigation basins, dams and canals.
