Lanzarote: Arrecife Costa Teguise Puerto del Carmen Playa Blanca; Fuerteventura: Morro Jable Costa Calma Puerto del Rosario Corralejo
many of the routes have been cleared signposted and waymarked; hill and mountain trails are often fairly easy but can be steep stony and rocky in places; coastal walks range from sandy beaches to rugged cliffs of broken lava; always carry water and guard against the sun
