Description

This is the only trail on the island that takes you to the photogenic Faro de Anaga lighthouse and its spectacular views of Roque Bermejo. 

The route starts from Chamorga, the most easterly village in the Anaga mountains. It ascends to El Pilón, crosses Paso de la Burra and climbs stone steps up to the ruins of Caserío de Tafada.

From this point the descent to the Anaga Lighthouse begins, with incredible views of the Roques de Anaga and the entire east coast of the massif. 

This is a route with almost no shade, so make sure to protect yourself from the sun and stay hydrated.

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.
