This recreational area is set in a beautiful laurel forest, one of the most representative ecosystems of Anaga. 

Also known as laurisilva, this subtropical forest, considered to be a true living fossil, covered much of the Mediterranean basin 20 million years ago. 

This humid, evergreen forest, bathed in the moisture of the trade winds, boasts great biodiversity, with notable trees such as laurel (Laurus novocanariensis), til (Ocotea foetens) and viñatigo (Persea indica). 

It is also the habitat of birds endemic to the Canary Islands, such as the laurel pigeon and Bolle’s pigeon. 

Its name, “La Quebrada”, alludes to a section of this slope that was hollowed out by the landslides that took place on Saint Andrew’s Day in 1922, when heavy rains swept huge volumes of earth and uprooted trees down the ravine and into the sea. 


  • 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.
