One of Tenerife's most impressive beauty spots, on the west coast a few miles from the airport, was revered by the ancient Guanche.
Spectacular soaring cliffs you can view from boat excursions.
Tenerife's volcanic nature has given rise to some impressive geography and topography - of which the Acantilados de los Gigantes on the island's west coast offer one of the most dramatic examples, their massive stone walls soaring in some spots to 600 metres (1,970 feet) above the crashing surf. The Guanche considered these cliffs sacred, and protectors against the end of the world. To best appreciate their majesty, we'd recommend taking one of the nearby boat excursions to view them from out at sea, which will provide the additional dividend of spotting some of the dolphins and whales that frequent these waters.
