Coastal path to Alcala

  • When we took the coastal path to Alcala a couple of weeks ago we saw that a lot of work is being done to create a new path - does anyone know when it is due to be completed.

    oh my word, that is dreadful. i presume you mean in alcala where sauco is now situated and not varadero where it used to be?   i am quite shocked, what nationality did the youths seem to be?

  • Crazy situation

    It seems to be going on everywhere.

    Should there be more lighting or local police present or is this due to economic cutbacks.


    This is our best walk

  • Why would more lighting help !! the lady had her bag snatched at probbaly the busiest time when people are out & about, it was lunchtime. It all happens so fast, by the time you have realised the thieves have legged it. My friend witnessed (from her balcony nr Crab Island) a man & woman approached a guy with a back pack on, the guy actually had his hands in the back pack and the man didn't even realise, ny firnd was shouting that he was being robbed but they were foreign & didn't understand, the thieved legged it empty handed

  • Am glad Guarda arrived promptly but before you criticize UK - We were burgled 8 years ago here in Tenerife, the burglar left clear fingerprints and a very good footprint. We were advised by the Guarda when we went to San Juan to register the theft, to go home and they would be with us in twenty minutes to swob etc. we are still waiting!

  • a lovely day today we walked from san jaun to los gigs it was lovely but at sauco there were a male and female middle aged reasonably dressed who looked dodgy indeed in fact she was making fast headway towords me till i looked directly  in her face then she walked by they did not look like spanish to me stuck out like a sore thumb also at the derelict villa on the coast between the rural hotel and varedero there were two guys in there mid twenties on bikes who definately did not want there faces to be seen it seemed to me they were lying in wait for some easy prey hopefully i am totally wrong here but it was an enjoyable walk in a lovely day

  • Tried this walk just a couple of weeks ago, but closed of with construction mesh. So can it now be walked without any constraints or Olympian feats.

  • Walked it twice this week and it is still fenced off. I can't see it reopening until they have completed the construction work of the prom in Alcala.
