Yes you can walk but I wouldnt suggest going over the dunes as it is a fair hike and gets very hot under foot. Instead walk along next to the sea, its a good distance but a nice stroll. We usually do it to build up an appetite for when we arrive at PDI or to walk off a lunch before finding a sunbed at the other end!

if you walk across the dunes it can be a bit of a trudge but when you get to the other side there are plenty of buses back if you walk up Avda Tirajana to the Cita Centre, where there are also cafes for a well deserved break. You will walk through a nudist/gay area but mostly everything is tucked away from the path and you might not even have known about it being there if you hadn't been told.

The walk round the headland is easier, depending on how much firm sand there is, but it can be a bit like shopping in Oxford street on Christmas Eve. Again lots of buses back but a bit longer walk to the nearest stop

Either way, make a day of it and it can be quite pleasant. take a bottle of water with you as stops on the way are infrequent.

Manzana... have looked at the map.

Ave. Tirajana is a north south road, so are you saying walk along the coast, but before the corner where the coast turns north there will be a path that connects with Tirajana. Is the Cita Centre a shopping complex? The google street view of Tirajana seems to show mainly appartements.

What I was saying is that if you go through the dunes you come out in Avda Tirajana and about 5 minutes up there is the Cita centre next to the Rey Carlos.

If you walk round the beach you will come to the Anexo2 shopping centre and then you have to walk up the hill ,Avda Alf Provisionales,and catch the bus at the Yumbo Centrum.

If you have walked I would not recommend turning off to the left before the middle of Anexo2 but you can climb up to the cliff and walk across to the Cita centre. I suppose either way you have to go uphill.

If you have walked and still have the energy you can continue through to the end of Anexo 2 and then take the steps up by the Atlantic centre. With luck the lift then takes you to the cliff top and you can walk to Parque Tropical where there are some cafes with a tranquil view over trees and the sea. And even on to San Agustin. Sounds a long way but if you like walking there are places to stop and it isn't that far. Actual walking time would be about two hours from Maspalomas.
