Los gigantes

acantilados-de-los-gigantes

The Los Gigantes cliffs represent a basaltic-type volcanic geological accident on the west coast of the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain), characterized by its vertical walls, which fall on the ocean from heights ranging between 300 and more than 600 meters. They are administratively distributed between the municipalities of Buenavista del Norte (for the most part) and Santiago del Teide, within the Teno Rural Park.

Below sea level these cliffs do not continue towards depth. The seabed in this area is barely 30 meters deep and due to its difficult access they are home to a natural wealth that attracts many divers and fishermen.
