From Puerto de La Cruz Descent of the Barranco de Antequera and return by boat to Santa Cruz

Hiking Anaga to go down to the second longest natural beach of Tenerife, which is very little traveled due to its limited accessibility. It is only possible to arrive there walking or by boat. The route begins in La Cumbrilla from where we will go down the ravine with the same name, to reach the beach of Antequera where a boat will pick us up to move to Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The route is a representation of the Canarian ecosystems, from laurel forests to extensive vegetation of cardonal-tabaibales, which earned it the consideration of Natural Reserve. Antequera is one of Tenerife's most remote beaches, just waiting to be discovered. It can only be reached along a rather rough trail or by sea. But it is worth the effort to take in the extraordinary scenery by the cliff of the Anaga mountain range, with the Antequera rock formation at the end. The best way of getting there is to take one of the boat trips that set off from Santa Cruz and San Andrés. Access along the trail is quite tricky and you will need to be in good physical condition and reasonably experienced. The beach is made of fine grey sand and the best time to come is at low tide when it is not covered by the sea. It is popular among nudists. Useful information Location: Igueste de San Andrés, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Length: 400 m (1,300 ft). Width: 25 m (80 ft). Composition: Black sand. Means of access: On foot (rough) or by boat. Disabled access: No. Type of beach: Very isolated. Amenities: No. Parking facilities: No. Bus service: No. Coordinates: 28º 32' 06.999'' N 16º 07' 56.002'' W.

Semiprivate weekend guided tour: Caminito del Rey from Malaga

Restored in March 2015, the Caminito del Rey, formerly a service road, has now become one of the main tourist destinations in the province of Malaga. The tour is guided, which makes a big difference with doing it alone. The guide explains the history and many anecdotes that make the journey very exciting and pleasant. The route is 7.7 km and 10 km long, which make approximately 3 hours of pure enjoyment in the beautiful Natural Park of the Gaitanes. El Caminito de Rey hike is spectacular all way long: from the Count of Guadalhorce Reservoir to its end at El Chorro Dam. Placed in unique natural surroundings, the path stretches between two gorges, canyons and a large valley, along pathways or boardwalks. All the texts about the path, as well as the photos and videos that follow, were created after many visits of our experts to the site, and their hard work that had lasted for several months. The route is linear, not circular, and it goes in one direction, downwards from the north to the south. Its beginning is in the Town of Ardales and the end in Álora. This route is almost 8 km long, and takes from three to four hours to be crossed. As we consider it to be rather unique, we decided to describe all of its parts so you could understand what can be seen or felt along the route. There are seven parts of the route: Visitor Reception Area Shuttle bus stop and a car park El Kiosko Restaurant Two access areas: the path and Gaitanejo way (2.7 km or 1.5 km long route, depending on your choice). Visitor Reception Centre and Gaitanejo Reservoir. First Canyon Gaitanejo Gorge (2.9 km from the entrance to the exit) Second Canyon Las Palomas Cliff Hoyo Valley Third Canyon Gaitanes Gorge (Desfiladero de los Gaitanes) Last Stretch Boardwalk to the exit Downwards path to the El Chorro Train Station, called Avenue Caminito del Rey (2.1 km). The Gorge Desfiladero de los Gaitanes is a natural beauty spot, placed in the centre of the province, between the towns of Alora, Antequera and Ardales. This is one of the most beautiful spots of the Malaga Mountains. Between its steep and considerably high walls, the River Guadalhorce flows, after having passed through the reservoirs El Chorro (The Spurt), Guadalhorce, Guadalteba and Gaitanejo. The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro, which was meant to make the most of the slope in a hydroelectric power station, was carried out together with a path for maintaining the channel. This one is known as El Caminito del Rey Path (The Kings’s Little Pathway) because it was first opened by King Alfonso XIII. This path, about 3 kilometers long, has just been refurbished, and it goes along vertical walls and a footbridge over the gorge on the same waterway.
