    You do not say which resort you are staying in, but in my opinion walking between resorts is realistically not possible.

    Best option really for a long walk would be along the coastal area of Puerto Del Carmen from one end to the other… At a stretch you could do from the the old town through to the main resort then Matagorda and it is possible to carry on to Playa Honda. Alternatively you could try going the opposite way and end up in Puerto Calero but i dont think theres a coastal path all the way.

    Playa Blanca to Any other resort would be a no no ! Unless your happy to slog it out on the roadside for hours in the baking sunshine ! Its just a no go !

    The thing to keep in mind is the sunshine factor ! It may not feel that warm once your out in the breeze which can be very misleading and easy to underestimate especially if your a new visitors to Lanzarote, but with not enough sun block on and not rehydrating often enough, you will find a long walk / trek quite taxing as well as running the risk of arriving at the end looking like a boiled lobster !

    Plenty of drinks , sun block and a good hat etc and youl be fine !…

    even a hardy rambler would find it a tad difficult in the sunshine, get a bus to wherever your going, and spend the day there walking about.

    from los pocillos you can take the coastal promenade all the way to arrecife,passing through matagorda then playa honda,its a really nice walk one stretch takes you past the airport this is probably the longest stretch without any natural stopping points ie cafes etc,lots of beach front cafes in playa honda for a rest then on to arrecife,if you didnt want to walk back jump on the bus to return, from arrecife you can continue onto costa teguise but it is is a LONG journey to try all in one.
