Description

Las Hayas Recreational Area lies at about 1,000 metres above sea level on the lava flows of Roques Blancos, an eruption that occurred in the central highlands of Tenerife less than 2,000 years ago.

The trade winds bring with them humid conditions, which favours cool and dense vegetation with typical monteverde plant species such as faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis), mixed with Canary Island pine trees. As for the fauna, the most common species in the area are chaffinches, chiffchaffs and blue tits.

Vehicle access to the recreational area is via a 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 tents.

Tips

  • 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.
