Punta de Teno, Tenerife

4.3
#10 of 26 in Nature in Tenerife
Located within a rural park, Punta de Teno shows off many of the island’s tall tabaiba trees. However, accessing this point, which juts out into the water, is a problem. Many drivers ignore the “road closed” sign and take on the rough roads and harrowing ledge along the way. If you venture here, you'll come out of a tunnel in direction of the beaches where you can see a late 19th-century lighthouse.

  • The Punta de Teno can be defined as one of those must-see of Tenerife, though possibly no one has talked about you before this site. Restricted on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays to private cars, access must be through the line 369 bus, which goes (and is) every hour from Buenavista del Norte for € 1 person per trip. It's a natural place of unique beauty, where you can enjoy a view different from "Los Gigantes". The waters are very transparent and it is a good place to snorkel (eye with currents). A good place for those who enjoy see places rather than stroll bland streets full of shops for tourists (other towns of Tenerife, I look to you).

  • The best place to see the cliff of Los Gigantes without the ugly buildings that disfigure the site.

  • This tip his worth for its lunar landscape, the view, the... access road is an awesome place! The lighthouse does not visit but it will linger on the footpaths nearby. The beach is not very nice, but one can bathe and see beautiful fish to finish the visit. No bar nearby nor shower.
