Teno Rural Park

The Teno Rural Park is one of the most beautiful areas on Tenerife. This park, traditionally isolated due to its limited and difficult access, with its mountainous massif in the north-west of Tenerife, is of great ecological value, both scenic and cultural: it includes many examples of traditional island architecture. Large areas of laurisilva forest still survive here, a type of rich leafy forest vegetation, and are the home of many species of animals, such as the Osprey. It is precisely its rich birdlife that has led to its being declared a protected area for birds.

From the Punta de Teno, the most westerly point of the island, which is marked by an old lighthouse, there are spectacular panoramic views of the Gigantes Cliffs, which drop straight down to the sea from a height of almost 600 metres. To get to the Punta de Teno you have to follow the coast road that leaves from the centre of the town of Buenavista del Norte.
