I suppose you're reffering to the old (late 60s early 70s) buildings called "MAITE" (1,2 and 3) in Benalmadena. That's 20Km (er... 13-14 miles) from Málaga city.
Both Málaga and Benalmadena are on the sea side and "El Caminito del Rey" isn't.
Thats right benalmadena, but they dont live in buildings and yes theyre pretty close to beach.
BTW im not a fucking gringo we here use "km","kg", etc.
