Use of the recreational areas is permitted during daylight hours only (between sunrise and sunset).


El Lagar Recreational Area is located at an altitude of just over 1,000 metres on the north-western slopes of the island.

The landscape consists of Canary pine forest with Monteverde understorey (faya Morella faya, tree heath Erica arborea and acebiño Ilex canariensis).

Several traces can be seen of the heavy use of this area in the past, such as large pine trees with marks on their trunks from pine tar production.

Vehicle access is via a 9-kilometre dirt track.

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

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


  • 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.
