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


Las Calderetas is located at an altitude of over 1000 m and is a very popular recreational area due to its proximity to a number of towns and villages. 

The landscape is notable for the presence of a stand of Monterey pine trees, introduced during the reforestation work carried out in the 1940s. 

The aim of the reforestation work was to restore the forest that had been cleared as quickly as possible to its original size. However, due to a lack of further management, these pines grew too close together, blocking out the light needed by other species of trees, shrubs and grasses to grow. 

For this reason, the island’s forestry teams have been working in recent years to improve the biodiversity of these forests, replacing the Monterey pines with monteverde species. 

Thanks to their work, today many other plant species, including faya (Morella faya), acebiño (Ilex canariensis), Portugal laurel (Prunus lusitanica), and tree heath (Erica arborea) thrive here as well, enriching the landscape and the natural value of the site.


  • 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.
