Caminito del rey to reopen on the 12 june

The Caminito del Rey will reopen on the 12 june 2020.

This is the announcement (in Spanish) from the company managing the site. Tickets will be available from Friday the 22nd of May. The online system will allow reservations up to the end of July 2020.

The Caminito will open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with a limit of 550 people per day allowed access.

Remember that we are in “phase 1” of the lockdown and there is a restriction on moving from province to province. So, as I understand this, only people living in the province of Málaga will be able to take advantage of the reopening.

(Please correct me if I am wrong!)

There is no announcement as to what time the online booking system will open on Friday 22nd but if you want to travel to the Caminito del Rey then I would suggest checking early in the morning and keep checking. I would expect that the tickets will sellout very quickly indeed!

Information here on how to book your tickets online.

Local councils are also promoting the use of public transport to arrive so I presume the train and entry combi ticket from Málaga will also be available. Read here for instructions on how to get the combi tickets.

I would apreciate any feedback about the caminito, it’s reopening, the train combi tickets or any other aspect of a visit to the Caminito del Rey.

Unfortunately I live in the province of Cádiz so won’t be able to visit untill restrictions are lifted further.

Caminito del Rey reopen 12 May

Will the Caminito del Rey re-open in May 2020?

UPDATE 15/05/2020 – Looking at the official website, as expected, the Caminito del Rey remains closed untill further notice.

There has been an announcement from the Malaga tourist board stating that the Caminito del Rey will re-open up it’s online reservation system for tickets on the 14th of May. They say that the walkway itself will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from the 29th of May.

Now, we must remember that Spain is in the process of de-escalating the state of emergency from the coronavirus outbreak. We have been in “phase 0” for 2 weeks and “phase 1” with further relaxation of laws starts on Monday the 11th of May 2020.

Yesterday, the Andalucian goverments said that all regions in Andalucia will enter into “phase 1” on the 11th of May EXCEPT the provinces of MALAGA and GRANADA. This means of course that the Caminito del Rey (in the province of Malaga) will probably not open at the end of May.

Each “phase” must last at least 2 weeks so the delay in moving from Phase 0 to phase 1 in Malaga province will certainly delay the reopening of the Caminito del Rey in May 2020
