This is a clearly marked and well maintained path and reference in earlier reviews to a small ravine crossing appears is no longer to be applicable. Having said that the path has potential for slips due to gravelly surface and flip flops and high heeled or unsecured shoes are not suitable. Nor is it suitable for pushchairs (baby buggies), mobility scooters or aids.

We took the advice of earlier reviewers and took the €9 water bus back making an enjoyable round trip.

This beautiful walk will take you around 45-60 minutes, depending on your pace and number of photo stops. I actually did it in 40 minutes, with photos, but I was walking alone so possibly less stops? Be aware that there is 'nothing' between Carmen and Calero (including shade) so plan/prepare accordingly. Calero has a small but very smart selection of marina-front bars and restaurants. I chose the Harbour Club Restaurant. Great cappuccino served with a very cute mini ice cream. Afterwards, I chose to return to Carmen via the 'sea taxi' which cost €8pp and afforded a great view of the coastline that I'd previously walked along.

We had previously walked along the coastal path but didn't get to Puerto Calero so decided to do it again and finish it. The walk starts at the harbour then up steps and up a zigzag path until eventually you're on rough ground where you have to be careful to keep an eye on the path or risk tripping over stones. It's very dusty and dry so although you could walk this in flip flops, trainers or something more substantial would provide support and protection from the dirt. The breeze can make you forget how strong the sun is, so it's a good idea to take water and make sure you've applied sun protection. We loved looking at the cats on the early part of the walk (very timid but they seem to be looked after by the locals as there were lots of tubs of water and cat biscuits along the way), and the views out to sea are stunning. We also love to dream about being able to afford one of the cliff top villas along the way! Lanzarote is a beautiful island and this walk is the perfect opportunity to see the local flora. I would recommend it to all although some less mobile might find certain parts a bit challenging, particularly where you walk down steep and deep steps into a cove and back up. Puerto Calero was also very pretty with lots of places to enjoy a drink knowing that you have earned it!

We walked there and back one day and it is a nice way spend a couple of hours. The walk is fairly easy though a lot of it is on a rough path. There are plenty of places to eat in Puero Calero but a few of the bars at the marina are a bit expensive as you would expect. Well worth doing for the lovely views of the countryside and of the ocean.

This is a great walk along the cliff tops overlooking the sea. Take water and a hat if it is a hot day. It can be done in just trainers, in fact I have done it in flip flops. If you are starting in PDC then you head along the boardwalk in front of the harbour until you reach the zig zag path taking you up to a fairly level walk first on a well made path and then on rough ground marked out all the way to Puerto Calero. There is a ravine to cross via steps with a handrail which is not for the faint hearted but not difficult. If you go on market day the market has never been huge but even less so now since COVID, so not much of a reason to go other than the exercise. There are nice places to eat or just to get a coffee in Calero and a pleasant journey back on the waterbus which will not run if the sea is rough and if they feel not enough people to make it worth their while so if you really want the waterbus back check with the office in PDC before you set off to see if it is running. Otherwise you can get the 161 bus back which runs every 1/2 hour from the bus stop near the costa calero hotel. This walk takes approximatley 40 minutes at a steady pace. BTW the market in PDC is no longer running, this is not due to COVID measures but for other reasons and is unlikely to start again anytime in the near future.

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. It's amazing! The weather was cloudy when we walked and the cliff and sea view was spectacular. Loved it. We reached the Puerto Calero without even realizing it. Make sure to apply suncream and bring hat or scarf. Highly recommended

We actually did this walk twice during our recent trip.

From our hotel (Apartamentos Feriones) it was about 3 miles

Our journey took us through the Old Town, past the port and over open countryside toward Puerto Calero

There were great views all along the way from the mountains of Lanzarote as well as out to sea and, in the distance Isla De Lobos and Fuerteventura

From a paved path in PDC after a while the walk is on rougher ground but not problematic unless you have mobility issues. It was quite steep for a little while at the start but mostly pretty level apart from a bit in the middle.

There are plenty bar/restaurants in Puerto Calero where you can sit and look over the marina

On our first walk we took the water taxi back to PDC and on the second we took the bus back

A really nice, and popular, walk

Gorgeous walk along the cliff. Beautiful views . Not a difficult walk at all but at the same time, it wouldn’t suit PRMs as there are steep steps down and up about half way there. It’s about 5.6km from Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero is beautiful. A lovely selection of cafes and restaurants. It was hard to choose where to stop and have a coffee! You can walk back the way you came or there’s also the glass bottom boat which runs every hour and a half approximately. We got the boat back this time and it was such a gorgeous little trip. The water was so clear and a calm and it’s about 20 minutes to PDC. Definitely recommend this walk!

We were recently staying in Playa Blanca and decided to retrace our steps from our last trip to Lanzarote 10 years ago when we stayed in Puerto del Carmen.
We did this walk again and enjoyed the peace and great views. A bit different from our previous visit when we had a stroppy teenager with us!
It's an easy walk but best to wear trainers as there are a few steps and uneven ground as you get closer to Puerto Calero.
We were pleased to see that there is still the option of travelling between the two places by boat as not everyone wants to do the return walk especially when it's very hot.
We picked up a bus from the marina back to Playa Blanca.
Nice selection of restaurants and shops in the marina and if you include a meal and boat trip you could easily pass a very few pleasant hours.

The beginning along the boardwalk in the harbour area is very attractive. There is then a series of zi zag ramps which take you up to the top of the cliffs. After a while the block paving finishes and then you are on natural path. The route is clear. The views over the cliffs are great. it's flat apart from where you go down and up a gulley. All in all it's an enjoyable walk of around 2 / 3 miles depending how much you look around Calero. Puerto Calero is basically a marina with a few modern bars / restuarants. It's not an old rustic destination. We caught the bus back but the stop is around 700m inland up a hill.
