This is an easy and pleasant coastal stroll between the two small resorts at the western edge of Costa Adeje, made possible now by a new bridge over the barranco at the western edge of Playa Paraiso. Most of the route is on paved surfaces, and there are plans to pave the rough 600m section, on the cliff-top approaching Playa de Ajabo in Callao Salvaje. With the advent of the Hard Rock hotel complex and other luxury hotel developments, Playa Paraiso is finally shedding its tired image and now can actually boast a couple of small, pretty beaches, to live up to its name. The new beach bar and sandy beach at Callao Salvaje signal that this long-standing resort, much favoured by French and British ex-pats is also on an upward curve. All in all, this is a far prettier walk than you once might have imagined!
