- El Caminito del Rey - The Spanish King Alfonso XIII inaugurated this pathway in 1921, which is why it’s now called “The King’s Little Pathway”. The King himself strolled the length of it to marvel at the breathtaking & scenic landscape.

A wonderful, relaxing oceanfront condo!
We loved sitting on the back porch and listening to the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks. It was so soothing! The location was convenient to so many of the places we wanted to visit. It was clean, safe and easy to feel “at home”. Thank yoh Third Home!! ”
