best way is to enter from Puertito of Guimar and walk through the vegetation of the nature reserve - artistic, beautiful, with blooming plants and cactus, never seen something similar.

The reserve is a set in a barren area of the South East Coast. It represents what this part of the island looked like prior to the development of tourist resorts. It has a small dormant volcano on the western edge. There is a clear...More

Malpais translates as Badlands. There are a few areas in Tenerife that bear this name which really relates to the desert like features of which there used to be many before the explosion of tourism that began in the 1970's. Now a protected area you...More

Easiest way in is from Puertito de Güímar. Once facing the coast turn left and walk towards the park. All the roads merge into Calle Marques de Sta Cruz. Walk ahead on this road and you will soon be in the park. Parking... More
