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


Hoya del Abade Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 1,000 metres on the northern slopes of Tenerife and is cool and humid as it is bathed by the trade winds.

The verdant forest is dominated by the Monterey pine (Pinus radiata), a species introduced with the aim of restoring the landscape stripped bare by intensive deforestation. These trees are now being replaced by native monteverde vegetation.

Vehicle access to this area is via a 6-kilometre dirt track.

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


  • 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.
