Gran Canaria is one of the most attractive
places to explore on the island. Tamadaba pinewood
is a well conserved area and it offers spectacular
landscape to its visitors. One of the best
things to do in Gran Canaria.
The Tamadaba pinewood stands on a 1,300 meters of
altitude on a coastal plateau. Visitors are able to
experience the beautiful panorama where the
shoreline rises in a series of truly imposing crags
that fall away almost vertically to the sea far
For getting to Tamadaba and make a nature walk or
hiking in Tamadaba, you should start your tour by
car from the nearby town of Artenara. On the 8 km.
mark, you should take the right-hand fork which is
the the only one permitted in order to circle the
pinewood. After about 4 km., you should turn right
in the direction of the camp area.
After reaching the campsite, than you should
continue on foot keeping to the left of the campsite
and making for a flattish area.
Here you will come out to the edge of the cliff face
from which one gets an absolutely spectacular view
of the Risco Faneque and
If you continue a few hundred meters on the
northwards along the edge, you will see the very tip
of the outcrop, with the ocean visible and audible
over three thousand feet below.
An excursion to the Tamadaba pinewood is a great
attraction in your Gran Canaria holidays.
