After visiting Roque Nublo I drove the short distant to Roque Bentayga.It was very quiet there with only 4 cars in the small car park.First I visited the small museum where the girl work there was very friendly and changed the video that was playing on a big screen to English for me.The video was really interesting telling the story of the early inhabitants of the island and why Rogue Bentayoga is a sacred place.The museum is free.There are toilets and you can buy drinks & snacks.It was getting late so I did't not get time to climb up to the rock .

We went up the mountain and visited the stone wall and the tiny caves and wholes built into the mountain. Finally we went to the museum which was interesting and even free of charge. Last but not least, there are no tourist crowds. Clear recommendation!

Very close to Roque Nublo & Pico de las Nieves. If driving the hills, well worth visiting and very quiet- not many people go there. Ample sized car park, free museum, good interesting insight into GC history in about 30 minutes. About 1-200 metres up to the top on foot. Excellent views. Great place for a picnic away from the tourist hoards.

Great views from the top - it's a much smaller summit than Roque Nublo (where you can walk around quite a bit at the top) - here the path ends abruptly and then you have a smaller area to enjoy the view.

It's quite a strenuous walk up and the path is narrow in places - near the top it's not one for vertigo sufferers. Take sturdy shoes - it's very uneven.

The history is very interesting and this is more of a sacred site than Roque Nublo which we preferred.

The museum was closed when we were there.

We hired a car to get around the island and one of the highlights of our holiday was the drive from Aldea on the west coast up through the interior passing Roque Bentayga and it's sister, Roque Nublo. The roads were very narrow, steep in places and they seemed to just about manage to cling to the sides of the hills and mountains, however, the views and the scenery were well worth the drive.
If you are planning to go to the Roque then plan on an early start and make a whole day of it. Also take suitable footwear and some water especially if it's a warm and sunny day.

It is worth taking a small diversion off the road to Tejeda. Whilst the views are breathtaking, the small museum explains the importance of this are to the Gaunches who inhabited this area before the Spanish arrived. The information is well presented to make it interesting without being too lengthy

My wife and I drove up to the Roque Bentaiga during a two-week holiday in Gran Canaria, shortly after visiting the Artenara, the highest village in Gran Canaria.
We arrived at about 4:30 in the afternoon, with the intention of hiking up the trail to the Roque. However, we were told by the local warden that the gate would be closed at 5pm, so regrettably, we did not have time to make hike the trail. Such a shame, as the views were spectacular.
Maybe another time….

The great thing about Roque Bentayga is that you get fantastic views of it without having to go up it. As you drive towards Teresa some of the panoramas are simply amazing. Definitely something to see if visiting Gran Canaria.

Went with my friends in mid-December, first we sat in the town for drinks and then drow to the ramp. The rest of the way we went by foot and caught the most amazing sunset. From the ramp to the top it's 20-25 minutes walk and so worth it, the view is stunning. Going down when the night falls is not the smartest idea ever, but still, not a problem.
