Time Viewpoint

Views over banana plantations in the Aridane valley
The Time Viewpoint overlooks one of the most spectacular views on the island of La Palma: the vast valley of Aridane, covered by banana plantations and cut by the deep gorge of Las Angustias, which ends in the charming port of Tazacorte. On a clear day, the island of El Hierro can be seen. This viewpoint, located 700 metrers above sea level, is on the LP-1 road, between the towns of Los Llanos de Aridane and Puntagorda: an ideal place to recharge on a car journey over the western side of La Palma.
A pathway with spectacular views from Tazacorte
It is also possible to reach the Time Viewpoint on foot by walking up a steep, rocky, three-kilometre road that zig-zags up from Tazacorte’s old quay on the coast. The trail is difficult, but the breathtaking views more than compensate. On arrival, walkers can reward themselves in the viewpoint bar, with a slice of Spanish omelette and a barraquito – a typical local way of drinking coffee with condensed milk and liqueur. The view after dark is even more amazing, if that is possible.

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.).
