2.AnagaAnaga is placed on the north-eastern peninsula.

This area and theTeno Mountainsare the only parts of the island that were not covered by the volcanic eruptions that formed the Teide, about 600,000 years ago. The landscape is therefore entirely different from large parts of Tenerife

Again a beautiful place to see, the scenery is just amazing!!

Lord of the Rings was filmed thereTRAVELIs better to drive there as driving is part of experiencing the WOW factor of the rangeBus/Taxi

3. Masca walkMasca is one of the most picturesque parts of the island and is the tip of the northwest that is covered by the Teno Mountains.

Reputed to have been a Pirate hideaway, the small Bay of Masca on the coast is a three-hour walk from the village through stunning scenery

There is lush waterfalls on the way down some you can bathe in and in the heat its a godsend!!

4.SURFING5 minutes to the left of Monkey Beach there is a good surf point, perfect for beginners Precautions are that it is a rock beach so be careful Can rent boards and lessons for 10- 15 along the beach there are many surf shops to do so

Taganana(Anaga) surfing is great with black beach, advisable to be an experienced surfer as sea is rough, rocks in water . Will need to take your own board too.On other side of island so driving is best to get there and sleep over at beach overnight if you like.
