2.ANAGA Anaga is placed on the north-eastern peninsula.
This area and the Teno Mountains are the only parts of the island that were not covered by the volcanic eruptions that formed the Teide, about 600,000 years ago. The landscape is therefore entirely different from large parts of Tenerife
Again a beautiful place to see, the scenery is just amazing!!
Lord of the Rings was filmed thereTRAVEL Is better to drive there as driving is part of experiencing the
WOW factor of the range Bus/Taxi

is the tip of the northwest that is covered by the Teno Mountains.
Reputed to have been a Pirate hideaway, the small Bay of Masca on the coast is a three-hour walk from the village through stunning scenery
There is lush waterfalls on the way down some you can bathe in and in the heat its a godsend!!
3. MASCA WALK DURATION: 3hrs without breaks, 4-5 hours with
stops having lunch, waterfall bathe and for you photographers you’ll need 5 hours!

good surf point, perfect for beginners Precautions are that it is a rock beach so be careful Can rent boards and lessons for €10- € 15 along
the beach there are many surf shops to do so
