In the north-east of Tenerife is the region known as “Isla Baja,” which is made up of the districts of Buenavista del Norte, Garachico, Los Silos and El Tanque. It is a haven of tranquillity in the heart of the countryside and an ideal destination for outdoor activities. Its towns still preserve all their traditional flavour, and the richness of the local scenery and architecture is remarkable. This is especially true in the streets of Garachico, the old commercial capital of the island, which has been awarded the Fine Arts Gold Medal for the high level of preservation.
In Isla Baja the small coves and seawater pools invite you to take a swim and the stunning Teno Rural Park, an ecological treasure, offers many options for outdoor activities or simply the quiet enjoyment of the countryside. The most typical accommodation is in small, charming hotels or “casas rurales” (rural houses).
