Los Gigantes y Los Acantilados
The Cliffs of the Giants, which the ancient inhabitants of the Canary Islands (the Guanches) called «Muralla del Infierno» (Wall of Hell), are the most spectacular coastal landscape of Tenerife. They consist of vertical rock walls that rise up to 600 metres above the sea as the result of constant erosion of the Teno Massif.
The base of the Cliffs submerges down to about 30 metres under the sea, and it is characterised by its very rich flora and fauna, making it a real paradise for scuba diving and fishing. The best view of the Cliffs is from the sea, for which you can choose one of the boat trips included in the Guide. Let yourself be enchanted by the colours and majesty of the Cliffs and you will be able to understand why the Guanches considered them sacred, believing that the world would end there.
