But still great to go see. Was really raining when we got there but it didn't take away from the beauty. Was great to see it. Wouldn't spend long there though. We got a few pics and went on our way.

First of all, no it’s not a safe place for small kids but our three year old loved it. The water hole was mesmerizing to watch. And the cliffs near by (where the waves doesn’t hit as hard) was a perfect spot to find shells,...More

Stay far away from the actual blow hole as the water does come up without warning and the rocks are so slippery. People were getting dangerously close for selfies. Being January the weather was crazy. The waves were huge coming over the side of the...More

There is something mesmerizing about the "breathing" nature of La Garita. If you have ever found yourself mindlessly watching waves roll in, lulled by the rhythm of their continuous yet ever changing pattern then you will enjoy stopping by La Garita. I visited it twice...More

I can see why the Canarians say this is the island breathing. It can be quite mesmerising just to watch the water fill in and shoot back out into the sky and we were glad we made the effort to stop off here. This place...More

That’s a good way to spend your time when the weather is not so good. It is relatively easy to reach from the GC 1 highway. On the way to Las Palmas, after the airport entrance you’ll reach soon the entrance to Garita. There you...More
