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


San José de Los Llanos Recreational Area is located at an altitude of over 1,000 metres, on the northern slopes of the island, so fog and cool temperatures are very common.

The area is set in a Canary Island pine forest that was reforested to restore the landscape to its original state, and also contains vegetation typical of this area, including monteverde species such as faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and tagasaste (Cytisusproliferus).

Due to its easy access by car – it is located next to the main road – and its proximity to the village of San José de Los Llanos, it is a very popular area, especially on holidays and weekends.

Several footpaths lead both from the recreational area and its surroundings.

The recreational area adjoins a camping area for tents.


  • 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.
