A ride on the narrow roads of the northern Anaga Mountains, magnificent views and rugged coastline, attacked by ocean waves, is a relaxing day in this beautiful part of Tenerife.

East Coast

The TF-12 road leads along the Anaga mountain ridge. In several places there are rest areas with views of both sides of the coast. To the east you can see the neighboring island of Gran Canaria.

Taganana

The road leads through the original wine village Taganana, which is worth a separate visit.

Benijo

From Taganana we continue by car along the coast, our destination is Benijo. There is not much parking space here, at ten in the morning we find one of the last available spaces.

From here, only the unpaved road leads to El Draguillo with a beautiful dragon and the opportunity to continue along the attractive and rugged coastline.

Coast

The massive rocky island of Roque de Dentro dominates in the opposite direction. From the glued traffic sign we descend a narrow path down to the ocean.

Playa Benijo

There is not much for swimming, there are usually large waves or strong back currents. But you can spend a long time here bypassing the coast and watching the waves relentlessly attacking the rugged coastline.

Playa Benijo

Sometimes we get too close přib After a steep ascent in the same way, we watch a beautiful natural theater from a respectful, safe distance from the terrace of a local restaurant. They have great fish specialties and the popular café cortado.
