Viewpoint hanging off a cliff
This spectacular viewpoint is in the far west of Gran Canaria and hangs over the sea at the top of a steep cliiff edge with spectacular views out over the Atlantic Ocean. From the viewpoint you get a clear view of a zigzag wall of sea cliffs called the “Dragon’s Tail”. Turning back to look at the island you see the La Arena Valley and the wide, green La Aldea de San Nicolás.
A car trip around Gran Canaria
The viewpoint carpark, on the GC-200 road, has informative panels and is an essential stop on a drive around the island. Everyone should walk down the step stone steps to the balcony hanging out over the ocean. The views are so impressive that you won’t want to leave until you’ve taken in full range of sights and colours and the scent of the ocean. The journey has to continue eventually as there’s still so much to see.
