Tamadaba (Parque Natural de Tamadaba) is also one of the most attractive places in Gran Canaria, located around Artenara, Aldea de San Nicolás and Agaete. The best preserved natural pine forests of Gran Canaria can be found in Tamadaba.
Exploring the pinewood that is a well conserved area and enjoying the beautiful landscape is really great and one of the best things to do in Gran Canaria for nature lovers in Gran Canaria.
Tamadaba pinewood is not only the best conserved but it also offers one of the most beautiful views in Gran Canaria. The pinewood situated at a height of 1,300 metres on a coastal plateau and at a point where the shoreline rises in a series of truly imposing crags that fall away almost vertically to the sea far below.
For a stroll or walk through Tamadaba, hiking lovers may start the tour by car from the nearby town of Artenara.
At the 8 km. mark, take the right-hand fork in order to circle the pinewood. About four kilometres on, turn right in the direction of the camp area.
When this track peters out, continue on foot, keeping to the left of the campsite, and making for a flattish area.
Here, carefully approach the edge of the cliff face, from which one gets an absolutely spectacular view of the Risco Faneque and the Island of Tenerife.
