Description

Arenas Negras Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 1,240 metres on the north-western slopes of the island. Due to its proximity to the island’s peaks, its climate is characterised by highly variable temperatures, both from from season to season and from day to night.

The area owes its name to the nearby site of one of the most recent eruptions in Tenerife: the Garachico or Trevejos volcano, part of the volcanic chain that links the Teno massif with the Teide-Pico Viejo volcano.

The environs are notable for the contrast between the Canary Island pines, some of which are of majestic proportions, and the dark tephra deposits left behind by volcanic eruptions.

There are waymarked routes for walking, cycling, horse riding or motor vehicles that start and finish here.

Vehicle access to the area is via a dirt track.

The recreational area adjoins a camping area for both tents and mobile homes.

Tips

  • 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.
