  • Is there a partial coastal walk from Los Gigantes to Alcala?

    Kind of.

    Get to Varadero and the take the right fork opposite Barcelo Varadero hotel.  200 metres approx down this road turn right and walk towards the sea.  You'll eventually come to a dirt track which, in one form or another, following the coast line, leads all the way to just behind the 5* Palacio de Isora Hotel in Alcala.  Have a look on Google Earth and you can make out the line of the path as it is well walked.

  • We did this walk the other way around back to LG.  Once you get past the 5* Palacio de Isora Hotel in Alcala, where you have to scramble a bit over the rocks, it is quite an easy walk.  We did it on a very hot day and it was nice to be so near the sea.  The worst bit is going through Playa as you don't realise how long it is and you start to think you will never get to LG.  With a pit stop in the Patio Bar it is well worth doing.   :)

  • You don't need to scramble over the rocks, but instead, passing the huge swimming pool of the Alcala hotel on your right, turn right at the small island and then turn left along the dust track which takes you through banana plantation. At the end turn left and you will pick up the path again which runs parallel with the sea back to Valadero. Good walk and don't forget to stop and look at the Casa Rural on your left towards the end of the banana plantation 'straight', very interesting.
