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...More

On our wat towards Tejada we saw this big peace of rock, kindda landmark. It looks like a huge hull of cruiseschip and the chimney from the distance. Did not climb it.

It is definitely great place for view guys. Shorter journey compared to the one on the Roque Nublo but BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE OPENING HOURS (just to 5p.m.)!

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!

The road winds up to the visitor centre where there is a large car park. On the day we visited there was no one else there, no idea if that's normal. The visitor centre is extremely well presented. Lots of interesting information about the history...More

Visited mid-week and mid-morning. Five other cars in the car park. Steep but not too precipitous path leads up to foot of main rock. Small museum has interesting information on local archaeology and past occupants. Cold drinks available.

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...More

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.

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...More

Hi. I am going to visit Gran Canaries for about 2 weeks. I will travel alone and will only use public transport. I love hiking and enjoy the nature a lot. Here is the rough itinerary that I had planned and I have some questions about the accessibility of some places by bus. I hope someone can help me in these. Day 1-4: from airport to Las Palmas Visit Caldera de Bandama, Firgas, Arucas, Teror and Agüimes Stay in Las Palmas Day 5-6: from Las Palmas to Agaete Visit Valle de Agaete and...More
