  • This is a must when you are on GC. Come to this place by car and park on the parking lot. From there you can have a short walk with enjoying the great view. And this is a point where different options...  more »

  • The drive there is half the joy with stunning scenery around every twist in the road. You'll need to wait to park or get there outside the busy times.  more »

  • While the giant rock is impressive, the views all around it are even better. On the downside this is pretty much the only hike on Gran Canaria that is really crowded with tourists. So, if you like to hike on your own, there are better places to go.
  • Fantastic place with fantastic views. Peaceful and serene. The drive there is a treat in its own right (Just don't look down). This is the true unspoilt Canarian forest mountains.
  • This is a very nice walk up to the Torque Nublo a major monument of Gran Canaria. The walk from the car park takes about 30 mins. I would suggest some shoes with grip, it is cooler than the rest of the island due to the altitude and the views are not to be missed.
  • It's not the rock itself, but the views that open up once you walk around it. A bit dangerous, but lots of people sitting down and enjoying the views. One of the best places I've been to in my life.
  • Quite a bit of tourists up there but still way less than in the beach resorts. And the view is just magnificent.
