  • I am returning to Tenerife in October and will be in Puerto Santiago for the winter. I would like to join an English walking group. Previously a member of the German walking group as have German friends in Tenerife. Would be nice to join an English group. I have my own transport so that would not be a problem.

  • There used to be one in Los Cristianos that walked each week to various areas.  I think it was organised by Colin Kirby (ex resident of LG area) you can contact him via his facebook account. https://www.facebook.com/colin.kirby.92  He is a lovely guy so will let you know whether or not it will be organised this year.

  • We love the walks along from LG through Crab Island around the Barcelo hotel all the way to Playa Arena.

    We do this eveyday - what a lovely place to be and live.

    Can't wait to retire in 15 years

    Never been to the fish restautrant up the hill though by the small beach during that walk

    Is it any good

  • Love the walk from LG to Arena - have been doing it for years when we are out there.  Always notice something different.  Great for people watching.  Stand at the wall to watch the waves crashing on the walls and catch a rainbow.  We have to stop at the top of the hill just by the fish restaurant and have a breather.  The walk upto the beach always exciting as you never know if the waves will be quiet or a red flag flying with the waves crashing onto the beach. A wander around the shops at Arena, a nice breakfast, then down to the real reason we come out, a sunbed and some rest.   Stop at The Plaza bar for a drink on the way home to watch the locals playing dominoes and cards, always a lively event.  Then a choice, the walk back down by the sea or the upper road with great views...........  love it all  8)

    Or Hans.  He leaves leaflets at various places around LG, including at the bus stop.  He uses local transport, usually leaving at 10.50 am most days, and does a very good Masca Baranca walk, among others.

  • Visit the Tourist Office in Playa de la Arena loads of leaflets for walks in the area and further afield in Tenerife. Don't know if it's still open but there was a bike hire place in Varadero that sold guide books for walking in Tenerife. Got a few of the books and done lots of the walks. Nice walk from Giua de Isora to Aripe and Chirche if the fires haven't wiped it out. Stunning walks along the coast at San Juan de Rambla through a cliff top hamlet called El Rosario, then further along the coast towards Puerto de la Cruz the Rambla de Castro.
    Most do-able using the buses. Couple of days on the sun bed with a guide book and the Titsa timetable then off for an amble with a Bono, camera and a bottle of water. Wonderful life.
