TRAIL TO ANTEQUERA BEACH + BOAT
Nestled in the Anaga massif we find Antequera beach, a hidden natural paradise in the middle of the Biosphere Reserve that today is one of those places in Tenerife capable of maintaining its original beauty..
Access to this remote area means enjoying a fun experience that combines hiking and some beach time before returning by boat to the starting point. It resumes in enjoying Tenerife from a local perspective. The trail to Antequera beach is highly recommended, as much or more than the descent of the Masca ravine.
This hiking route begins at Las Teresitas beach where we will get into the van that will take us to the summit of Anaga, an enclave wrapped in the best representation of laurel forest of the island.
From what is known as Lomo de las Bodegas (in Chamorga) we will start walking down the trail to Antequera beach through it´s ravine leaving behind small hamlets and ridges that open out to the sea before reaching a wonderful virgin beach.
Once the trail to Antequera beach is completed we will have free time to rest and enjoy a well-deserved swim in the clean waters of the Atlantic before taking the boat back to Las Teresitas beach. This second part of the experience will allow us to see the northeast coast of Tenerife and part of the impressive cliffs of Anaga.
