Hike Distance?

On a recent tour of Iberia, we had a day off in Torremolinos. It was a beautiful day and we were able to plant the only box of our trip.

Go down the beach road to the end for cars, just past the Melia Costa del Sol Hotel. Inland there are stairs of brick and marble leading to the upper town. (There also are lifts but they don't operate on Sundays, which this was. Also, the lower entry seems to be in a construction zone that didn't look accessible.)

Go up the stairs to the level where the lifts would end up at the top. Facing the lifts go to where the wall starts on the right side. Reach down behind the wall in the corner behind a rock. This is a mini box in a film canister (remember those) and without ink. Enjoy the view while you stamp in but be careful not to be seen. A Sunday in September during siesta time is fairly quiet in this spot but I can't vouch for other times.
