  • Tenerife No Limits

    This route takes you all the way to the north of Tenerife and is characterized by the wild Atlantic coast. You start on the beautiful beach of Benijo, whose fine sand is framed by rugged rocks. A staircase connects the dreamlike bay with the settlement of Benijo, which consists of only a few isolated houses.From there it goes steeply uphill, over rocky slopes and terraced fields. In countless hairpin bends, the path winds up to Cruz del Draguillo, where two hiking trails meet in the forest. A detour to the summit of the Cabezo del Tejo is worthwhile - above you will be rewarded with a fantastic panorama over the Anaga Mountains with its nature reserves.
     
    Then you descend to the village of Chamorga. Because of the many streams and the mild climate at the sea, you will find many agricultural businesses in this region. The population comes from pre-Hispanic times, here lived the "Guanches", the indigenous people of Tenerife. Through the rocky, breathtakingly beautiful gorge of the Barranco de Roque Bermejo you walk down towards the coast. Meter-high cacti, flowering bushes and small pools line the path. With a view of the Atlantic, the route takes you to Roque Bermejo - a place that can only be reached on foot or by boat. The village is known for the striking rock in the form of a shark fin.
    You can take bus line 946 from Santa Cruz to the starting point in Benijo. From Roque Bermejo you can either hike the same way back to Chamorga, which is served by bus line 947, or you can take the boat taxi from the beach to Las Teresitas, for example.
