Cola de Dragón Agaete - Dragon's tail Agaete

The Dragon’s Tail is a stunning geological formation located in the west coast of Gran Canaria, in the municipality of Agaete. It is an impressive cliff formation that stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean, resembling the tail of a dragon. This natural monument is one of the most unique and emblematic landmarks of the island.

The Dragon’s Tail is the result of volcanic activity that took place millions of years ago. The volcanic rock formations that make up the cliff were shaped by the wind and sea, creating a series of rugged ridges and deep ravines that give the formation its distinct appearance.

To fully appreciate the Dragon’s Tail, visitors can take a scenic hike along the coast, it can be seen from different points of the coast such as Puerto de las Nieves and it is a true spectacle of nature. Although there is no specific place to visit it, some people do it from the Balcón viewpoint in La Aldea de San Nicolás.

Overall, the Dragon’s Tail is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Agaete,

    Once you’re here, the views really are just gorgeous any time of the day. If you’re driving the west coast, it is actually a road just off the highway you take and it goes fast as the views are pretty as well driving up! It was easy to go up and down as long as you drive slow.

    Nice, but not as much as the books say. Sunset could be hhe best time to visit. Trip to this place requires driving skills and passion. To take the return trip after sunset will be no fun. No entrance or parking fee 👍 Good kiosk in the parking lot.

    Interesting place to be, but you have to wait as it’s quite crowded as for the small place to stand. And of course everyone tries to take pictures with no people on it. If you are patient and respectful to others, you might get your chance for getting nice view just for yourself :)

    Such a great view!!! I would recommend! Just be aware that there isn't a parking and you might have to park your car near the road

    One of the best views that u will see on this island. The road towards this location is good from any direction. A toilet could be useful there because of the numbers of people visiting the place.
