This is one of the few beautiful and accessible gorges on the north coast of Tenerife that goes down to the sea. The views are outstanding with magnificent mighty cliffs as your backdrop to the bright blue waters of the Atlantic ocean below.
The walk starts on an old “camino” (Guanche trail) traversing up the gorge where there is much flora and fauna to be seen due to the micro-climate within the gorge.
After leaving the gorge, we walk through a tiny hamlet and agricultural land where in the spring, the fields are full of wild poppies. We then descend an old camino again down to the sea. Now, we walk along a lovely coastal path where old Canarian style houses can be found together with magnificent vistas of the crashing waves on the shore, giving a completely varied twist to the day.
