    Didi made this visit for us. We decided to visit on a dusty overcast day but our exp reindeer here made it sunshine all the way. Didi who is from Belgium gave us a demonstration that appeared to us like it was just for us and very individual. We timed it right to watch them filleting the Aloe plant leaves which looked just like fish fillets. Didi explained all the process and about the history of this plant. This place is free to visit, all the staff we met were so very friendly and although you are in their shop there was no pressure or hard sell to buy any of the many aloe products. We did though end up buying and my wife is very pleased with her purchases and the special little gifts also put into our bag to take away. We spent nearly two hours there walking round the aloe field and generally mooching about. Thank you all for your hospitality and especially Didi (who does not listen or read about the news)

    Right after the viewpoint with the statues, one turns right and goes up a hill towards what used to be a very nice meeting place with infra-structure, along with a majestic view.
    The venue itself is closed but nothing prevents one from going up, being only careful with the access, which closes at 18h.

    Thursdsy 12th November and we drove the  11 kilometres from Tefia to visit this remote village and its beach.

    Just keep following the twisty road, will eventually get there as the road comes to an end at Puertido de Los Molinos. We parked up in the car park, bar / restaurant Casa Pon nearby, we then walked towards the beach.

    We crossed over a small wooden bridge, which spaned Barranco de los Molinos (ravine of Los Molinos) and its very narrow river. There were a number of unusual ducks here, more like turkeys. The bridge was definitely the newest structure here by a good number of years.

    There were a few buildings here, we assumed were fishermen's house, which had withstood many a battering from the elements throughout the decades, if not longer.

    We walked up the steps on the left hand side of the beach. These were carved into the rock face, which took us to a small pathway which led us across the wild and rugged coastline. It was an opportunity to see the dramatic terrain with the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashing upon it.

    There was another pathway, up to the cliffs, on the right hand side of the beach, it can be found behind the restaurant by the car park, we did not venture up there.

    The beach which stretches for about 200 metres along the coast is located in a rocky bay flanked on either side by sheer cliffs and a mountainous terrain behind it. Towards the waters edge the sand is dark golden brown. However the rest of the beach is cover with large rounded stones which are difficult to walk on, definitely not flip flop territory.

    There are no sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, toilets or sports area here. There are a couple of restaurants, when open, and some bins, that is virtually it.

    An ideal spot to escape from modern life, no phone signals, basically a place to unwind, relax, stroll along the beach or the cliffs.

    We were hoping to visit the caves but we were unable to to so due to the height of the tide.

    Despite not being able to visit the caves it was well worth a visit to enjoy the raw beauty and tranquility of the place.

    And quite a few nice restaurants and bars to take a break, looking at the waves and at Lobos Island...

    We came across Finca Canarias when driving to La Oliva. It is a really nice centre and we were lucky enough to meet Rebecca and she gave us a demonstration on the making of Aloe Vera products. So interesting! Rebecca answered all our questions and we able to try the products. We left with hand cream, which feels wonderful.
    Many thanks for sharing your time and knowledge Rebecca. A worthwhile visit.

    We were staying on the coast and decided to have a trip inland through the mountains to Betancuria.
    The drive through the mountains was spectacular on good roads, there were some fantastic views.
    The village has parking which is signposted and it’s a pleasant 5 minute stroll to the village.
    The village is small with a couple of shops, restaurants, museum and church.
    The views are lovely.

    You could miss this museum as it is not well signed but there is a statue outside which is what caught our attention. The house is really well kept and the welcome on our entrance was most welcoming. We were the only people there at the time so we took our time to wonder round the rooms, some very interesting pieces on display.

    Took the bus from Caleta de fuste, cost 1.40 euros pp. Very informative reception, great museum showing the history of the site and others across the Canaries. They are working on site to do repairs but would love to come back and ‘scrape’ ‘harvest’ or ‘make’ some salt myself! A very nice morning spent there

    A drive on the FV-30 is considered one on the best drives in Europe. I had read prior that the road had hairpin turns and some sheer drops. It did not disappoint. We started from the North and headed South. After the first ascent and the descent into Betancuria I thought it wasn’t too bad but shortly after leaving Betancuria is when the gun begins. The road becomes narrow and in places just wide enough for a single vehicle, some pretty blind hairpin turns with sheer drops. I do not know how big tour buses travel this road. Luckily we did not need to pass any while we were driving. Just keep your eyes on the road, go slow and have your passenger take some pictures of the wonderful views so you can see them when you are off the road

    This is the sort of place that's crying out to be made into a High Class Hotel & Spa, but instead it's being used as a squat, being allowed to deteriorate.

    Unfortunately access is 1 hour drive on the Cofete unmade road.

    Shame to see it's current state of repair, as once upon a time it must have been very spectacular.

    We spent a few hours here and enjoyed the walking around. Stopping for a beer and to do some shopping. That's when we found the church and statue.

    A laid back place , and friendly people.

    We went to visit the shipwreck but most of it has been washed away with the past storms and we could only see a little sticking out of the top of the water but maybe could see more at a different time but we left after an hour so we don’t know, It’s not a road to drive down to get to playa De Garcey and is quite bumpy but is well worth going too see

    a huge and beautiful house, especially the wood works on ceiling, doors and windows. a part of the exhibition is on the house and its history, another part on actual issues, at the moment plastics and recycling. worth the visit.
