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


Lagunetilla Chica Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 1,200 metres, on the northern slopes of the island and at the top of the slopes of Pinolere, a prime location that affords magnificent views of the Orotava Valley.

The landscape consists of fayal-brezal (Morella-Erica heath) mixed with Canary Island pines. In the vicinity you will also find trees typical of monteverde woodland but less demanding in terms of humidity, such as the sanguino (Rhamnus glandulosa).

Vehicle access is via approximately 5 km of dirt track, which requires an off-road vehicle.

There are waymarked routes for 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.

Recommendations and tips


  • Compulsory authorisation via this link for groups organised by associations, schools or businesses. This is to protect the natural environment and ensure that the maximum capacity of the recreational area is not exceeded.
