This undemanding walk connects the pretty promenades and harbour areas of the neighbouring west coast towns of Playa de San Juan and Alcalá. Due to the likelihood of gentle sea breezes, this route is an excellent choice in summer when more demanding hikes are more or less ruled out. Note, however, that the mid-section of the walk is along a rough, and sometimes narrow, cliff-top path. This is a linear route, and we suggest you take a very short trip on the Titsa bus to return to your starting point. You can always re-trace your steps, of course, if inclined.
