Description
There are some fascinating coastal rock formations to observe on this short circular walk from Playa Paraiso to the pretty bay and hamlet of Puertito de Armeñime on Costa Adeje. On the outward section we mainly follow a route along the low cliffs. On the return we take a different route, venturing a little inland to eventually circle the extensive multicoloured Bahia Principe hotel complex. For those with an interest, there is an opportunity to visit the attractive Dzamling Gar centre on Avenida Playa Paraiso between walk waypoints 20 and 21 where the ancient spiritual teaching of Dzogchen, including yoga, dance and song developed within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, is celebrated.

Although there is much in the way of beautiful scenery on all sides to admire on this route, walkers should be aware that litter and discarded waste from seaside campers is an unfortunate visual aspect in places.
