Visit Mirador de La Garañona in El Sauzal, Tenerife
The viewpoint of La Garanona is located 300 m above the Atlantic Ocean, in a beautiful place from where you can easily observe an incredible landscape like the coast of Acentejo.
This natural balcony over the ocean is placed over the cliffs and they hide a lot of flora and fauna (we even saw a friendly and lovely lizard while walking through the alleys of the park and mirador). The natural area around the lookout point is home to many endangered and protected species of flora and fauna, which is why nowadays the space is considered a Protected Space.
