The route begins in Rincon de la Victoria in the far south-westerly point of Axarquia. From here we take the N-340 coastal road in an easterly direction toward Torre del Mar. After 3 kilometres we turn left on to a 9 kilometre road to Macharaviaya.
On leaving Macharaviaya the route returns to the N-340 heading easterly once more for 14 kilometres. This coastal road is dotted with watchtowers built in the 16th century for defense over the beaches. These are just beginning to be restored and are floodlit at night. Four of these watchtowers are passed on route to the next stop. These are at Chilches (Torre de Chilches), Benajarafe (Torre Moya), Valle Niza (Torre Jaral) and in the delta of the River Velez (Torre Manganeta).
