Los Roques Viewpoints

Viewpoints en route from San Sebastian to Garajonay National Park
Five 'guardians of rock' watch over the entrance of Garajonay National Park as you approach from the capital of San Sebastian. These enormous rounded blocks were formed by magma that never came through the earth's surface and were then made visible by erosion. Today they protrude dramatically from the island’s green forest canopy like sentries. This group of viewpoints in Los Roques offers stunning views of the landscape and is part of the Unesco Biosphere Reserve of La Gomera.
The best views of the Agando rock
Driving up from San Sebastian on the TF-713 road the first viewpoint appears before you. Divided into two parts by the road, it is set between the rocks of Agando and La Laja. Enjoy the spectacular sunrises over the mountains of northern La Gomera (with the island of Tenerife in the background) and the beautiful sunsets that tinge the 180-metre high Agando rock with wonderful shades of red. O your way to the top, another three viewpoints offer excellent views of the rocks of La Zarcita, Carmona and Ojila and impressive panoramas of El Gato ravine to the south.

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.
- 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.).
