The Coastal Path
Near the Hotel Semiramis in the La Paz housing estate is where an old footpath starts. It runs along the Yeoward coast, goes under the Main East Road via a tunnel, crosses the La Arena barranco and leads to the lovely, black sand beach at El Bollullo. The path leads onwards to other nearby beaches: Los Patos and El Ancón. This footpath, much used by tourists, is about two kms long. It runs part of the way through banana plantations with spectacular views along the coast and up to the mountain tops above La Orotava.
