Malaga is home to some of the most beautiful nature in Spain, and one of its best hidden secrets is Barranco Blanco, a natural paradise just between the towns of Alhaurín el Grande y Coín, where, besides from the stunning waterfalls and river stream, you can find a huge variety of different types of trees, making for some gorgeous and very photogenic scenery.
In the summer months, you can bathe in the crystal clear waters of Barranco Blanco whilst enjoying the surroundings, and many locals bring a picnic and spend the day here surrounded by nature with their family and friends. To get to the waterfall you have to walk for about one kilometer, though it is an easy route. If you are thinking of booking a Malaga car hire, parking is easy and you can camp or book a hotel or apartment in the town.
A tranquil spot surrounded by nothing but trees and water, Barranco Blanco is a great place for wildlife lovers, as, if you are lucky, you may see wild animals, reptiles and fish during your visit. Butterflies are also abundant, though a little more difficult to see.
A bit off the beaten path, the best way to reach Barranco Blanco is by car. You can a car hire Malaga and collect it from the airport when you land. Reputable companies such as Marbesol offer highly competitive rates.
