A perfect seafront hike: Puerto del carmen to puerto calero
When you are on holiday in Lanzarote and looking for a short but scenic walk, look no further. The distance from the starting point of the walk in Puerto del Carmen to Puerto Calero is only 2.2 km and takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
The starting point is based on Calle Teide, marked on Google Maps as per below. Look for Sendero hasta Puerto Calero to find the exact starting mark.
Once you arrived at the starting point, you actually can’t go wrong. It starts with a paved walking path, but soon it changes to an unpaved path. You only have to go straight and soon you will see the harbour of Puerto Calero, which is the ending point. On the way, you are walking along the cliffs, but some stairs to get down to the see. Take swimwear in case you want to sunbath in between the locals in more quiet areas and don’t mind laying on rocks. The pictures below show why this short walk is something to not miss out on!
