A pleasant stroll along the sea-front from pretty Alcalá to the headland at Punta Blanca, part-way to the neighbouring resorts centred around Puerto Santiago. Great coastal views and of the Los Gigantes cliffs. Also a marvellous perspective opens up to the hill towns of Guia de Isora and Santiago del Teide. There a number of interesting information boards along the way. The walking surface is mostly smooth and flat with a slightly rougher middle section that is not paved at present.
