“If you keep walking North of Playa Las Canateras Beach you will find yourself here. Great for nature hikes. Lifeguards now patrol the area and washrooms have finally been installed. This used to be the locals hideaway from tourists and is one of the best sunset watching spots on the island. ”

You cannot choose your food here, it is already decided, for 10 euro per person you get Pork Roast with canarian potatoes, paella, Garbanzada, icecream, cake, coffee and drinsk included, and you can have as many times you like. Right next to you can go for a donkey ride around the farm. They also sell privately made olive oil, olives in glass etc. Bring cash.”
