Los Gigantes

Rock wall which emerges from the depths of the Atlantic

Los Gigantes (The Giants) are on the south-west coast of Tenerife, where they form an imposing rock wall which emerges from the depths of the Atlantic to reach up to 600m in height.

The Guanches, the island’s pre-Hispanic inhabitants, referred to them as the “wall of hell”. Once you see them, you’ll understand why.

They are one of the most amazing natural monuments in the Canary Islands, and over time they have become a symbol of the island of Tenerife.

They can be seen from the land, sea, and even from the air. The most spectacular option is definitely the second two. You can see them from the land at various points along the south-west coast, where you can even find some viewpoints. The boat journey is especially interesting as it is in the part of the island inhabited by a large colony of pilot whales, who aren’t afraid to come to the surface and say hello if they’re in a good mood.
