Description

This trail runs through a spectacular natural coastal area of great beauty located on the north coast of Tenerife. 

It starts in Roque de las Bodegas, a small village overlooking the beach of the same name. The route heads east from there, crossing several fields in the direction of Almáciga beach, a paradise for surfing enthusiasts. 

Keep walking until you reach Benijo beach, which you can see in all its splendour from the Playa de Benijo viewpoint. 

Continue along the route until you reach El Draguillo, so called because several dragon trees (“dragos”) grow there. From here you can enjoy magnificent views of the north coast of the Anaga Massif and then return along the same route.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.
  • Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in ravines with water courses.
  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls. 
  • Check out our guide to hiking in Tenerife and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
