  • This is the best known gorge on the island and as far as I know the biggest. Been here a few times. I suggest it to anyone that likes the outdoors, just remember during warmer months to start early as it can get difficult walking to the gorge in the heat, the gorge itself is nice and cool. During some winter months it is advised - based on the signs on location, not my personal experience - not to visit as the water level can get high. It can easily be combined with a visit to Lara beach.
  • A great walk, with some scrambling over rocks in places. We managed it with a 5 year-old without any problems, indeed they coped better than the adults. Don't be tempted to follow Google Maps and drive in from the east, but take the coast road on the west.
