How to get there:

You will have to come from Los Silos, along the TF-42. As you exit Los Silos, towards Santa Cruz de Tenerife take the first right turn, about 700 m (765 yards) from the Town Hall. This leads you onto a road towards Tierra del Trigo, which links up to the TF-423. Some 800 m (875 yards) from that turn-off is the Protected Nature Area, which the road zig-zags all the way across.
