5 viewpoints not be missed in Tenerife
Tenerife offers a set of spectacular landscapes to be experienced from its view points.
The Canary Islands are a group of magical islands, but the island of Tenerife, the largest of the group, offers extremely astonishing breathtaking landscapes. This is why we offer you some viewpoints to enjoy the beauty of this island.
This viewpoint offers us a panoramic view over one of the most important agricultural regions of the island, the whole area of Valle Guerra, Mesa de Tejina, Tejina and the coast up to the lighthouse of Punta del Hidalgo. Superb view over the entire municipality of Tegueste and the impressive mountains of the Anaga Rural Park.
La Roque del Boquerón is located at the foot of the belvedere and is an example of the volcanic activity of the Valle Molina and La Calderita. Hence the name of the Mirador del Boquerón.
Access to the viewpoint is very easy, but parking facilities are scarce. What if you cycle, si accedes a él en bicicleta?
The Ayosa viewpoint is located at an altitude of 2000 m (so beware of vertigo) and offers a large quantity and variety of vegetation in which the Canary pines predominate.
From this height, you can enjoy the valley of Orotava, the heights of Aguamansa and the ravine of La Madre. In the background also you can see the Teide, and a little further the silhouette of one of the other Canary Islands, La Palma.
Sometimes in summer the frequency of the trade winds creates a meteorological spectacle, a sea of clouds, a perfect setting for your selfies.
Little is known about the Montaña Grande viewpoint, but it attracts a lot of attention for the great view to the east of the island of Tenerife. More specifically from this point of view: the Malpaís of Güimar, El médano, la Cuesta, Taco, Anaga and Santa Cruz. Few things give you all for nothing.
This viewpoint is definitely a must see if you are cycling in Tenerife. The incredible panoramic view offers us a view from Punta de Hidalgo, through the Orotava valley to Buenavista. In addition to the background, we still have Teide, and we already know that a visit to Teide never fails.
The point of view is located under the territory of Santa Úrsula, and sometimes you can see a sea of clouds similar to that of the point of view of Ayosa.
The Mirador de la Garañona has a total area of 1500 m2, formed by gardens and with balconies at different levels connected by stairs. The viewpoint is located in El Sauzal, a municipality in the north of the island, offering a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean.
