Reviewed September 25, 2013

the reason i have rated it 4 stars instead of 5 is just because the road is far from perfect with some uneven surfaces due to rocks falling off the cliffs but dont let this put you out.... the place is amazing with beautiful views... when you driving to it there is a big billboard warning you in several languages that the road ahead is closed but dont stop and go ahead... its a small winded road but you will defi appreciate it when you get there :) and take some swim wear as there are beaches... pond formations between rocks and several other places to swim :))

Point your GPS to Buenavista del Norte, then follow the signs for Punta Teno. Ignore the signs "Road closed" and go ahead. The road is far from perfect. Drive through the tunnels. There is a parking available. Try to get over the gate and pass by the fares, weather vane and climb the volcanic formations.

Do not be put off by this. There are residences and farming down this road. Clearly there is a need to travel along it. The only real danger I would think is from falling or fallen stones. We went north via the Masca valley and that road was much more intimidating and spectacular. But the trip out to the end is worth it and seems popular with loacls. No facilities.

There is nothing here to tempt tourists who don't want a slice of peaceful nature. I chose to take breakfast and see the point and nearby archaeological site early morning. Accompanying the noise of waves from the two coves that form the point were the sounds of sea birds, and the silence of cliffs with the most fascinating geological structures. dolphins jumped in the distance and I saw two turtles. Pure bliss that carried me through the more hectic places of Tenerife and i wish i had had more time to relax in the energy of this place. check the weather before heading to punta de Teno because the road shuts in rain due to landslides.

Yes, ignore the road closed signs, but be aware that if any rocks fall and damage one's car etc that it would appear that the insurance company most likely won't cover you. Also if you are of a nervous disposition when it comes to heights then this is not the drive for you. The road does have adequate crash barriers along the coast side of the road. Most of the drive has a sheer drop on that side beyond the crash barriers. There are very dramatic rock formations made by the wind. On the other side of the road there is a steep mountain side with holes in it where the wind has driven out the rock. There are stones, both small and large lying in the gutter and in some places on the road. Also, there are tunnels en route which have been carved to accommodate the road. These tunnels are unlit and can feel quite scary.

The road is situation in a National Park which is being supported by the EU. At the end of the drive are places to park one's car. Then one can walk up to the light house. There are also other walks to the edge of the sea. There is even a small beach where one could sit out of the wind. It was very windy when we we there. There is protected wild life, plants, bird of prey, lizards and the like.

The views are spectacular, there is a considerable amount of green plants growing over the mountains. Also the views along the coast are well worth looking at.

If you can be adventurous and not be scared of the drive then go for it, you won't be disappointed.
