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.

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.
