Duration: 4.5 hours
This is a longer walk than you might think at just under 10 km, and with a deceptive overall ascent of almost 400 m, given the highest we get above sea-level is only 85 m! So, lots of ups and downs along the way! There are some fascinating contrasts to observe on the walk - starting at the fine new Playa de Ajabo beach and beach-bar/restaurant, through the centre of the quiet and well-established resort of Callao Salvaje, then along a cliff-top path on a rugged coastline with great views all-around and towards La Gomera. At tiny Puerto de los Mozes, to your surprise, you arrive at an abandoned pier and industrial buildings in a pretty cove before carrying on towards the Club Marazul apartments complex, negotiating the rough bed of a barranco for a section prior to entering the complex and gaining (public) access to the impressive Punta del Cangrejo viewpoint. Taking a detour through the lush Marazul gardens we head back in the direction of Callao Salvaje, crossing bare and largely abandoned agricultural terraces before returning to the resort beach, where the Sansibar beach-bar occupies a hugely inviting setting to quench you thirst and rest your weary legs!
