  • A flying visit, great for pictures. We take the buggy ride to meet the tree of love and right next to the lighthouse. The guide told us that there is the nearest point of the European continent. There's a stall in the tree of love that's worth taking a coconut water, enjoying the beautiful scenery.

  • Is an amazing natural environment, with wonderful views. The photos are always good thanks to this landscape.

  • The tree of love have this curiosity of having grown up tending to one side, probably due to the action of the strong winds of the place. Walking a little more you can reach the lighthouse of Cape San Roque, who represents the closest point of the African continent. Dali also has a beautiful view of the beach. Be sure to take the juice of the small tent next to the tree of love, besides the owner be very friendly and welcoming the juice he does is huge and delicious!
