PR LP 12.2 and partly GR LP 130: Cervecería Isla Verde - Tijarafe - Porís de Candelaría (or Proís, both correct, "natural harbor" in old Spanish) - Barranco del Jurado - Cevecería.
Circular route in the northwest of La Palma.
Approx. 4.5 - 6 hours with breaks. No shadow. Good beer in the end. : D
Way there (downhill) to Porís de Candelaria approx. 2.5 - 3 hours.
Approx. 12-14 km, approx. 850-1000 meters of altitude uphill and downhill, accumulated.
Max. Height approx. 600, min. 0 m above sea level. Up to 38% incline / decline with loose ground. Bathing possibilities depending on the sea and current in the former pirate and smuggler port Porís de Candelaria and Playa del Jurado via bathing ladders.
As always on Isla Bonita, it is well signposted.
The vertical meters are not to be underestimated. Not recommended in summer heat, see also senderosdelapalma.com.
During our hike there was some strange light, light gray, thin clouds and strange contrast, so the photos are not optimal. Optimal hiking temperature of around 20 ° C for this. :)

Okay, the bay has something ...
But walking down there from Tijarafe, you should only do that if you are masochistic or if you really want to annoy fellow hikers. 2 times 300m difference in altitude on less than 1km route, the whole route no matter how, always in blazing sun, really bad roads, etc., you can think about whether you really need it.
With the car to the parking lot 100m above and 400m from the bay give enough "foretaste".
24 years ago we did the tour and then chose the banana road variant (just as bad), unfortunately I didn't remember what we swore to each other back then - never again! That only occurred to me about 2 km before the finish line.
