This campsite is surrounded by Canary Island pine trees, which flourish in the dry climate found at this high elevation (1500 m). 

More humid conditions occur at lower altitudes, which means that monteverde species, such as faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and others, are not found here. In their absence, the Canary Island pines thrive. They are accompanied, mainly in sunny clearings and along roadsides and tracks, by tagasaste (Cytisus proliferus), codeso (Adenocarpus foliolosus), jara (Cistus symphytifolius), chahorra (Sideritis canariensis), corazoncillo (Lotus campylocladus), tomillo (Micromeria hyssopifolia) and, when in season, by various kinds of mushroom. These plant varieties can be found mainly in sunny clearings and along roadsides and tracks. 

As for wildlife, if you look carefully you will spot birds typical of the Canary Island pine forest, such as blue chaffinches and woodpeckers boring into the oldest trunks. 

In addition, this vantage point provides frequent views of the sea of clouds that covers the northern side of Tenerife like a white blanket. 


  • Enjoy the local plant and animal life without disturbing it. Be curious but from a safe and respectful distance.
  • Follow the rules and instructions on the signs to avoid disturbance to people and animals.
  • Keep the environment clean and leave no litter behind. Rubbish and cigarette butts must be disposed of in the designated containers.
  • Travel in small groups to keep noise pollution and the impact on the environment to a minimum.  
  • Use the water in the toilets and taps responsibly. Water is a scarce and precious commodity on our island.
