Anaga – an excursion for nature lovers

Just a few minutes' drive from the cruise liner moored in the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Anaga Nature Reserve —a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve— is a nature area that has managed to maintain its characteristics to an exceptional standard. Marked by deep valleys and cliffs that drop down to the coast with its beautiful black sand beaches, the ecological richness of this nature area is surprising, especially its laurisilva – a living memory of the vegetation that covered the European continent millions of years ago.
A unique opportunity for hillwalking
A full network of trails takes you into the forests and brings you as far as the sea but you can also visit it by car and enjoy the views from the viewing points. In Anaga, there are also some picturesque country houses with restaurants affording the visitor the chance to enjoy a good sample of typical Canarian cuisine. And there are companies that provide guided excursions on foot – or even on a mountain bike along specific trails.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
