Best Viewpoints in Tenerife

The Best Viewpoints in Tenerife

Tenerife an island with volcanic character that has the highest peak of Spain. Coast that mixes sand and abrupt cliffs offering unique landscapes. If you are going to spend a few days in Tenerife we invite you to discover places with extraordinary views where photographing becomes a pleasure.

Mirador de la Piedra de la Rosa

Located on the road to Teide in the north of the island we find this particular viewpoint. In front of a parking lot we can see the wide pine forest of the northern slope of Tenerife, a leafy green spectacle that crowns the image of Teide and on  clear days the skyline of La Palma. In the days of low and dense clouds, visitors can observe the sea of clouds, a blanket of white clouds that do not allow the view of the landscape beneath them and which give the impression of seeing a coast of white water.

Crossing the road through an indicated underground passage is the rocky formation that gives name to this lookout, a structure sculpted of natural form in the wall of a slope. The organic form of this wall takes to denominate Rose Stone  or Daisy Stone.

Mirador de La Corona

From the upper area of Los Realejos you can see the entire Valley of La Orotava, with views that run from the summit to the sea. This part of the island stands out for the leafy and greenery, a very different landscape than the one found in the south slope of Tenerife.

This projection in the orography is a typical place for the departure of paragliders, because its altitude (780 m) and its location is strategic for the practice of this sport.

Mirador de La Garañona

This viewpoint at El Sauzal offers beautiful views of cliffs and sea from the north face of the island. At 200 meters of altitude and surrounded by landscaped areas is an area of easy access and the ideal place to watch the sun go down over the sea.

In the viewpoint there is a nice café where you can enjoy coffee or ice cream.

Mirador del Llano de Ucanca

In the Teide National Park, next to the Roques de García you can find a volcanic panorama that mixes the highest peak of Spain with a large hollow in the ground. The earthy colors attached to the sparse vegetation that survives the altitude generate a pattern similar to the landscapes of satellites and planets.

If you are visiting the Teide National Park do not forget to take a few minutes to this viewpoint, from there you can get great photographs of an atypical and very characteristic natural environment of Tenerife.

Mirador del Pico del Inglés

A visit to La Laguna is a good excuse to end up going to the Mirador del Pico del Inglés on the ascent to the mount of Las Mercedes. Sculpted in the same rock this place offers panoramic views of the north and center of the island of Tenerife, at a glance you can tour the Roques de Anaga, Santa Cruz and Teide.

The steep orography of the island is revealed from this point showing the heart of valleys and leafy ravines and several cities and villages in the distance.

Mirador de Cherfe

From the municipality of Santiago del Teide this viewpoint offers a view of the west side of the island. Its 1,100 meters of altitude make it an exceptional place to be able to contemplate both the Village of Masca, as the Valley of Santiago del Teide and Teide itself.

On clear days you will see how the islands of La Gomera and La Palma arise from the ocean.

If you are going to make a visit to the remote Caserío or Barranco de Masca do not miss the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views.
