- Duration: 45 - 60 minutes
- Difficulty: Low
Coastal Walk from Muelle de la Tinosa (Puerto del Carmen Harbour) to Puerto Calero along the coast
Start your walk at the old harbour in Puerto del Carmen, by going up the set of stairs. This is probably the most difficult part of your journey.
Then you have to walk along the coast, first on the paved road and then following the dirt road. You will encounter some other sets of stairs along the way, but the walk is generally easy and doesn't require a high level of fitness, although good walking shoes are recommended.
You can admire the beautiful views of the ocean and in the meantime you will arrive at an interesting point along the way, which is Barranco de El Quiquere (El Quiquere Ravine), a place where you can see rock engravings made by the island's first inhabitants.
Along the way you'll also be able to see the islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos, and you will have lots of scenic viewpoints where you can stop for photographs (you can see a selection of photos from Instagram).
Especially during the summer months, we recommend that you go on this walk early in the morning, before it gets too hot, as there's no place to hide from the sun. Use sun cream and a hat to avoid an unpleasant episode of heatstroke.
Going back to Puerto del Carmen from Puerto Calero by boat
There is a boat service between Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero.
If you don't want to walk, you can buy directly a return ticket.
But if you are able to do the walk, we recommend that you go on foot and have some drinks and lunch in Puerto Calero, then take the waterbus back.
A return ticket costs 12 Euros and a one way ticket 8 Euros with Lineas Romero and there are several departures daily.
