It takes a while to reach this spot. I had taken some friends to
the Hermita de la Virgen for them to walk the camino along to
Cruz de los Reyes. In the time until meeting them I visitied
El Sabinar (twisted Juniper tree) and this mirador. Of the two
the mirador was more interesting. However it is roped off as
part of the wall by the access path had fallen away. With
care and in daylight this is not a problem. It is necessary
to enter the roped-off area in order to get proper value from
the visit. As well as the view of El Golfo as a whole, it was
good to see Arenas Blancas and to get a perspective of
the area as if from a low-flying aeroplane. The nine-hundred
metres is about three-thousand feet and so the experience
is similar to the view from a glider.
Care is needed in that the road from the Hermita is only
a "dirt road" (like nearly all the roads were in 1989 when
I first visited this island). Some car hire companies do not
cover damage on such roads. As the track is only single
width for most of the way one has to choose a passing
place in event of oncoming traffic.
