Long Description:


Near the lighthouse.

Faro de Punta Rasca is situated in a natural park in the south part of Tenerife. It's placed on rocks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and walking in this area shows you how the south part of Tenerife looked before tourist got an eye on this lovely island. You are not permitted to visit the lighthouse by car, so you have to walk or use a bike.

Recommended walk or mountain bike trip could be from El Palmar N 28°01.275 W 016°42.321. From here you have a nice walk/ride along the coastline right to the lighthouse, which you can se from a long distance. Teide is also to be seen, so this is indeed a nice and easy walk. But as always: Bring good shoes and water.
