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,

    Spectacular view of the landscape, where the ocean meets the land. Cities visible far away. A clever build platform makes you feel like flying. A few, but enough parking spaces and a small food and snacks truck for refreshments. Windy, but not too cold.

    This is a very nice place to visit if you have a car. We rented one and visited this panorama on a sunset. It was an amazing view! Also there is a parking right next to this sight so you don't have to worry about that. PS: The road that leads to this place is a beautiful as the panorama. Just go slow and enjoy the view!

    View accessible directly in car with a parking on the site. Very beautiful view on the sea and Tenerife. There is a balcon where you walk above the sea and can take great photo. There is also explanation about the night sky view according to the season. Which is a plus if you come at night or in the evening.

    Mirador de Balcon offers a stunning view, but the journey along its serpentine road was more impressive than the viewpoint itself. It perfectly captures the feel of Madeira a bit.
