The views are fantastic, and the access is very easy: you can get there by car (the road from the north part of the island is less hard), and a 20 to 35 mins walking in a very well demarcated pathway. So, go and enjoy. (Take fresh water, and hat - the sun will be strong).

It's a must. Walked with my wife a two boys up to the rock and would recommend for both walking enthusiasts and casual visitors. A highlight of Gran Canaria!!

We travelled by hire car from Melonaras with a couple of stops on the way. The scenery is breathtaking but it's fair to say it's not quite as relaxing for the driver as it is for the passengers. The roads are very winding and reassuringly have barriers! The views are spectacular and it's really refreshing to see another part of... More

Having visited almost only beaches for our trip we loved Roque Nublo. The road to get there is slow and very nice, with several pit-stop for pictures; impressive how it changes compared to the dry south: everything is green and vegetation are very nice. the walk to Roque Nublo is long but it worth. Take some water with you.

In Tejeda, you can connect with Global bus #305 Tejeda to San Mateo where you can connect to Global bus #303 San Mateo to Las Palmas. From Las Palmas take... More

We left our hotel at about 8.40 and arrived at the car park at around 10am (from Maspolomas). The walk is across tracks and rocks so not suitable for flip flops and rises about 500m from car park over a distance of about 1.3km. Our 8 year old daughter had no problems with the short trek. Views from the top... More

Good destination for a day trip from your beach. Hire a car and climb the narrow bending road to the parking area at Degollada de La Goleta. It is an easy walk around 3 km (return) from here to the rock, altitude difference 180m. Start early to avoid crowds (all year round) and heat (in summer). The hike is suitable... More

A must see when on the island.This is a stunning piece of natural beauty,We parked at Pico De Los Nieves and was treated to a vista that I can't even try to describe.You can trek to the rock from this point but beware it's a 13 k walk there and back.

With a nice half hour to three quarter walk/climb you arrive at a almost flat plateau with an impressive over 60m high wall. Also the view from this point is great. We could see Tenerife from there.
