It doesn’t look too bad from the bottom, but about three quarters of the way up I thought the gradient had defeated me. So glad I pushed on up though as the fresh air at the top, not to mention the view, was great. And then by walking on down the other side we got to explore the very desert-like landscape. It was quite amazing, and really beautiful in a very arid way.

We wandered up Amarilla by accident. We didn't realise just how high up it was but when you get to the top Wow! The views are amazing and it's such a great way to see some of South Tenerife. Take fluids and wear proper footwear are the only words of advice I will give. I recommmend you do this if you get the opportunity.

Great detour, with beautiful sedimentary layers exposed by oceanic erosion. You can walk along the cliffs, but be careful, they might be slippery.
The rim of the caldera is also worth a walk.

Its good if you want a bit of walking exercise. If you are on public transport its best to walk from El Medano. If in a car you can use any of the car parks by the road into El Medano from Los Abrigos

All I can say it’s a great place to go and snorkel and dive but under supervision as strong currents there is a cafe there with some seating they sale drinks and do a bbq for food which the place needed for years, Getting over the rocks to get to the sea edge is a little tricky trainers are a must once you have found a spot to relax it’s a loverly place to go to fish or sun bath been going down there for over 20+ years and seen some changes with the coast line and the surrounding area there is a bit of a parking area.

this place is an under-rated destination in Tenerife.

If you are sporty traveller then this is probably a good place in the island. It offers a mini-hiking trail that offers a wider view of Amarilla and its nearby towns, as well as a grasp of the island.
Down the hill is a stunning view of rock formations.
The beach is rocky with moderate waves but still good for swimming.
If you like to cook fresh seafoods then you can catch crabs and shellfish here!
There is a small cafe on the side of the hill for small refreshments or alcoholic drinks.

This is a pretty easy climb to the top. You'll get to see some decent territorial views. If you have a chance, after you get to the top, continue down the other side to the lava field next to the coastline. This is a pretty area & not many people walk there.

It is really great place to explore and much cleaner water to swim comparing e.g. to Los Christianos beach. It is not save place to swim for children. There is a bar in this place as well.

If you are staying in Costa del Silencio, Montana Amarilla will definitely appear on your tourist radar! It is not difficult to climb and a couple of trails lead to the top. It will not be a challenge even for those who are not very sportive and the ascend takes about 20-25 minutes. Beautiful views of the ocean, the island and Costa del Silencio open when you reach the top and on the way. A small rocky beach, accessible by concrete steps, is available for those who love to swim and dive. Close to the beach, a small wooden shed-like bar is situated, offering cold beer and other stuff to replenish your power after burning some calories.
Keep in mind that it is usually quite windy on that side of the island!
