After an exciting and beautiful drive up in the high mountains, you arrive at Faro de Teno. A dramatic and beautiful place. Walk down to the right side of the car park and sit and watch the spectacle of the Atlantic waves.

we were there on a windy day in early march. The North of Tenerife: clouds and rain, the South of Tenerife: sunshine. The location is at the outmost western end of Tenerife. Everything there is volcanic rocks. The most impressive to me were the locals who perfectly know to make use of that location. Despite some heavy winds there are... More

Note: road is closed on weekends and holidays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (there should be a connecting bus, 1 Euro) Nice view to both sides, lighthouses (old and new one), though access to lighthouses is closed. There is also small rocky beach nearby, but swimming will be quite extreme - so it's rather for waves-watching :) Place is... More

A must see place.. we have been there in a sunny and clear day and the landscape was amazing. You have a fantastic view of Los Gigantes, La Gomera.. and you can take memorable pictures. If you have your own car keep in mind on Saturday and Sunday you need to leave in Buenavista del Norte and catch a bus.

Attention: road ro Punta de Teno is closed on weekends between 10 and 17. You need to go on weekday! Quite remote place with nice views of Los Gigantes cliffs and Teno. There is a lighthouse (not for visiting), small fisherman port and a rocky beach. Very windy, but worth visiting.

The road to Punta de Teno is still restricted at the weekends from 11am to 5pm. A cheap and regular bus service is in place and those at the road block are friendly and have leaflets for advice. We however simply waited until after 5pm and went to see the sunset at this beautiful place. There is little parking at... More

We visited the lighthouse and headland and as other reviewers have noted it is a stunning location with the waves crashing against the rocks. The road is now open again and beautifully resurfaced with extensive preventative measures to prevent further rock falls! However on Saturday and Sunday it is not possible to drive all the way to Punta de Teno... More

We been here today 30.12.16 The road is newly opened, with new asphalt and there are new protections against rocks and stones falls. Arrived at the lands end you have a amazing view of the cliffs, lighthouse,and Atlantic ocean. Put Attention on the wind --can be very strong -can caused very high waves!!!! Simply RECOMMENDED!!!

The road to Punta Teno is still closed off to the public due to the road collapse a few months ago, and when you look from Punta del Roque Negro you can still see the debris scattered across the mountain side. Unfortunately we made the one hour trip there (we took a chance, since we couldn't find solid info on... More
