Timijiraque-Las Barranqueras-Las Playas

Timijiraque is nice little village situated in the southwest region of the isle, right next to a cosy black-sand cove. Of special interest are the remains of an ancient salt marsh, of which only the walls and tank –where the salt production process began– have survived the passing of time.

Timijiraque also has a picnic area where visitors can enjoy the views. The village was officially declared protected natural area in 1994. Its virgin landscapes, with staggering ravines, almost untouched by human activity, are home to perhaps one of the most important populations of Canary Island spurge within the isle. Other rare and unusual plant species –such as the Globularia salicina, also known as ‘Bird’s tongue’– can also be spotted in the same area.

Just five minutes from Timijiraques, Las Playas features a unique and spectacular geological formation with two vantage points –Mirador de Isora and Mirador de Las Playas– on the road to El Pinar. From there, one can behold and contemplate the extraordinary natural beauty of this singular place. Also at Las Playas is the Parador de Turismo.
