Abrante Viewpoint

A glass-floored viewpoint in La Gomera
At first glance, the Abrante Viewpoint seems pretty much like any other. However, high up on the ravine in the north of La Gomera where this viewpoint is located, visitors don’t simply overlook the precipice, they “float” over it. A seven-metre overhang with a glass floor lies at the far end of this viewpoint, overlooking a typical rural landscape of the Canary Islands. Seize the courage to walk on it and feel as if you are suspended in mid-air.
A must-see in Agulo with views over towards Tenerife
On clear days, the small valley of Agulo can be seen 400 metres below the viewpoint, with its clusters of houses and agricultural terraces, sandwiched between almost vertical cliffs and facing out to the Atlantic Ocean. In the distance you can see Tenerife. It is worth noting that visitors to the lookout need a vehicle as it is found off the main transport routes. This internationally praised building with its interesting design is well worthy of a visit as part of any car journey around the north of the island.

- 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.
- 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'.
- Respect and look after the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, binoculars and telescopes, etc.).
- Respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths and spaces causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
