All these walks are approximately 15km long and training shoes/walking shoes are advisable for the more rugged parts but I will include wheelchair friendly paths where sandals/flip-flops can be worn.
Remember; walk only those paths you are comfortable walking and do only as much as you are happy with…I make a point of only using public transport on the island, it takes the stress out of my travels, and I’ll finish each leg at a point serviced by a TITSA bus service (don’t forget your Bono card).
Remember, all these walks are free as is my description (There is no copyright to any photos or blog) so get out and enjoy.
Day 1: El Medano to Golf del Sur
This is a relatively easy, level coastal walk over sandy and gravel paths with stops where food and drinks can be purchased. Follow the well marked path from the promenade past Montaña Roja on your left (it’s not as high as you may imagine and the views are spectacular) to Playa de la Tejita.
It can be dusty and rough with small stones in places so keep to the path and follow the coast West. Along the way you will pass urbanizations, banana plantations and many small beaches, just keep following the coastal path all the way the Avendida Maritima into Los Abrigos and the Puerta.
Continue with the coast uphill past the shops, cafés and restaurants picking up the coastal path once again beyond to Golf del Sur. Once we reach the Marina turn right uphill past the round about to the T Junction at the supermarket and turn right again onto Calle Retama and Left onto Av. JM Galvān Belo. Left across from the Medical Centre is the bus stop on this one way road where we can catch the 470 Titsa back to El Medano or onward to Los Cristianos and beyond.
