You can walk fairly far up to a balcony overlooking Marbella and beyond to the mountians of Morocco. Well worth visit but wear suitable foot wear and take a hat

Good answer but you can't; you may stay at the hotel next to the parking. I would recommend to start early the walk to end on a good lunch. Get ready to climb, enjoy !
