The finger of God is lost durung the storm ´´Delta´´

But... you can still see the leftover... the harbor and restaurants are very good and fresh fish every day will be served for good prices.

As a big attraction was written everywhere the finger of God rock in Agaeta. But there was a storm and it is now less than the half of its former size. Not really an attraction.

They should rename it 'the broken finger of God'. We assumed it was the rock out to sea but no signs to explain. Lovely clear waters for swimming. Very rocky beach but protected from the island ferries coming in and out. Good restaurants nearby at reasonable costs. Beware the guys who charge you for helping you to park

It used to be an attraction, but after a big storm happened in 2005, it is only a big rock emerging from the sea.

Food tasty and large portions. However, terrible rude dismissive service indicate the place if living off it's name through inclusion in guide books etc.

Dedo de Dios ("God's Finger") is the basalt monolith, vaguely resembling a giant hand with an upright index finger, at the mouth of Puerto de las Nieves, the harbour town next to Agaete. Unfortunately for the monument — and the restaurant by it — the finger was broken some years ago, so there is not much to see anymore. A... More

A beautiful and very quiet fishing town with great views. You can eat delicious fish dishes and you can make great photo at sunrise and sunset. Also, from here you can take the ferry for other destinations.

A big storm has broken this landmark but the walk in the village is pleasant. Go and bath in the salinas.

The Dedo de Dios was an impressive lava stack caused by natural erosion. Unfortunately a storm in 2007 washed it away. However the coastline remains very dramatic and the port of Agaete worth visiting for the wonderful fish restaurants and for the sunsets. For the restaurant of the same name - see restaurants.
