    Trail description

    This trail along the coast sets off from the Maritim Hotel to explore the Protected Landscape of Rambla de Castro. It will take you through two residential estates before finishing at the San Pedro lookout point in the municipality of Los Realejos. Cliffs and beaches are the star features in this area, where the vegetation has grown accustomed to its salty environment and the rocky terrain. The palm trees in this area are among the most exuberant and stunning on the Island, together with a few dragon trees. You will also see several historically relevant features, including the water elevation system of La Gordejuela, the small fortress of San Fernando, the stately home of the Castro Family and the chapel of San Pedro.
