We stopped at Las Penitas Viewpoint after a coffee break in Betancuria during our tour by Pie de Caracol. Fortunately the weather was glorious and the views were stupendous. How welcome to see the very rare sight on the island of some natural greenery, where...More

There is a fair amount of parking at this Mirador, though not as much at the one a little bit further down. Competent driving is a must as this road would be tricky for those with not much experience or confidence, particularly in the sections...More

Follow the FV-30 from Pajara towards Casillias del Angel. We managed to follow a coach up, the steep narrow bit, so not as scary as the last time we came here. The views are stunning. If you have a car, you really should make this...More

This viewpoint has plenty of parking so you can get out and see the wonderful view down the valley. From the car park we clambered across the stoney ground to a small hill to get a better vantage point to take photographs. At the car...More

What a viewpoint. Easy parking just off the road on a bend. Worth parking up and take in the views and trying your best to ignore the squirrels and failing.
