North side of Tenerife never disappoints, neither with grades nor scenery. There is no other hamlet that radiates the true flavor of Tenerife’s traditional villages more than Taganana does. Oozing with cultural and historical importance, this gem is well worth a visit for anyone who will be in the Canary Islands. From a distance, it’s hard to miss the white-walled houses that stand out amidst lush greenery. These houses are tucked into the emerald folds of the Anaga Rural Park which coats the north-eastern tip of Tenerife. Brave the paved winding road that goes down between ravines and then bask in the glory of this hamlet. Surrounded by unspoiled beaches and towering sharp peaks rising from the Atlantic Ocean, one can’t ignore the mysterious yet magical air about Taganana.
