Cantarriján: Playa Cañuelo

The SexiRamblers on a walk


This is an easy, short circular walk from Playa Cantarriján to Playa Cañuelo. This walk is 6km long and take approximately 3 hours to complete.


This cirular route is an easier, shorter version of the Cerro Gordo - Cantarriján - Cañuelo walk. It only takes about 3 hours to complete and so it would be perfect for a day when you fancied eating at one of the chiringuitos on Playa Cantarriján or having a picnic and spending the day on the beach.

It begins in the Cantarriján carpark, where there is plenty of space to park. We cross the river and then walk up the path to the top of the hill. This is the steepest part of the walk. Once at the top, we make our way down to Playa Cañuelo, passing a small chapel on the way.

We walk along Playa Cañuelo and follow a small path up and over the cliffs (Acantilados de Maro - Cerro Gordo). There are fantastic views of the bays below from here. We then walk back down the Cantarriján carpark.
