  • The Roque Nublo itself for us was a bit disappointing because we expected more majestic; that said, it's worth a ride around the island for stunning scenery that can be seen!

  • I went with a group of friends in Holy week in 2014 and it was impressive to see the island from there, a unique peace.

  • It's a tough climb up (even to do with my fear of heights!). Great views and plenty of opportunity to take pictures. It is very hot with the burning sun, make sure you have enough water with you! Along the way, small spots with some shadow. Am glad we are gone!

  • If you are in Gran Canaria you definitely don't want to lose this amazing hike. The view is breathtaking
  • Easy hike up, about 20-30 mins. Bring some snacks and blankets, and spare batteries for your camera. This was easily the most beautiful sunset I've ever witnessed.
  • Quite a walk,..do try to reach The Rock! Awesome view.
  • Great place to visit and a nice walk to the actual rock.
  • Absolute must go location on Gran Canaria. The hike is a little exhausting but the view from the top and the quiet mood is absolutely worth it!
