The Sexi Senderistas is a platform for posting walks and hikes in the vicinity of Almuñécar and the Costa Tropical Spain. Most of the walks take place between October and May. The walks are within an hour or so's drive of Almuñécar. It is totally free and there is no membership or fees.
Although many of the walkers are sexy, the name has nothing to do with sex. Sexi was the name for Almuñecar before the Moors took control in the year 711. "Senderista" means rambler in Spanish.
There is no set level of difficulty. You should read the description of each walk to see if it is suitable for you. A walk could be as short as 100 metres or as long as 100km requiring crampons and breathing aparatus. Read the description!
Each walk has a walk leader. The walk leader is normally the person who posts the walk. The walk leader must make a correct description of the proposed walk in the post. The walk leader must know the route. Anyone can post walks.
The walks should be published as an EVENT or as a POST in the FACEBOOK GROUP. If the walk leader has stated a maxium number of people then people must indicate that they want to go on the walk. When the amount of walkers has been limited it would be very bad practice indeed to sign up for an event and then not attend so please don't sign up for an event unless you really mean it.
Anyone can post a walk. The walks must be posted as an EVENT or as a POST in the facebook group. The walk must contain a good description with length, duration, meeting point, likely terrain, the amount of uphill etc.
This group has as little bureaucracy as possible. Only good natured pleasant people are allowed. To come on any walk you must first read the disclaimer.
Sexisenderistas is a dog friendly group. Walks by default allow dogs. However, a group leader can ban individual dogs for bad behaviour or to require that certain dogs wear a muzzle if they are aggressive to other dogs or people. A group leader could have a dog free walk only in exceptional circumstances where there is a specific good reason why dogs should not be allowed.
Over the years there have been hundreds of walks but there is a core collection of around 30 really good walks. We are in the process of publishing all our walks on the WALKS LIST
The sexi senderista group has been going since 2010. Since that time we have been led by brilliant people such as Carol, Stella, Trev Clark, Stuart James, Steve and Margaret Gray, Lee Treasure, many guest appearances etc. The group was originally part of the women's group and men had to drop on their knees and apologise for all the sins of their brothers before being allowed on a walk. (That is a joke by the way.) Carol passed away but as far as I know the rest are still going. There have been maybe a couple of thousand people walk with the group and the cumulative distance walked would easilly cover many laps of the equator. The desnivel "cumulative height gain" may even be as high as reaching the moon. The calories burned would be enough to power a small village over a weekend. Long Live the Senderistas!!
We have decided to discontinue sending out walk information using our mailing list but it is a good idea to add yourself so that we can contact you via phone or email if necesary MAILING LIST
Some of the people who lead walks are worried that if someone has an accident they could be held responsible. Just to make sure there is no doubt, anyone who goes on a walk must first read the DISCLAIMER.
