Tenerife No Limits planned a hike.

  • Tenerife No Limits

    Malpaís means directly translated wasteland, but the Spanish word has a different meaning: Malpaís rather means a volcanic landscape that is still characterized by petrified lava flows, underground caves and black lava rocks many years after the last eruption. The Malpaís de Güímar nature reserve is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of these landscapes worldwide.
    Your hike starts at the Plaza de las Indias in Puertito de Güímar. From there you hike clockwise towards the extinct volcano Montaña Grande, which rises prominently from the rocky plain. There is a lookout point right at the foot of the volcano. Here you have a wonderful view of the plain covered with black rocks with its green bushes and above all of the furrowed coastline, where glowing lava once met the Atlantic Ocean.
    The circular hiking path now leads you down to the coast, where you can admire the bizarre shapes that formed when the lava cooled down. Along the rough coast, it goes back to the starting point of the hike. In Puertito de Güímar you can jump into the water on the beach or stop at one of the bars.
    Puertito de Güímar, the starting and ending point of the circular hike, can be reached from Santa Cruz by bus line 120.
