Llano de Ucanca
At around 2000m above sea level, Llano de Ucanca is the island’s largest plain and offers stunning vistas. Visitors here have commented on the area’s unique and inviting charm and its proximity to the nearby Teide Volcano, which is also undoubtedly worth a visit.
Key Fact: The site has been used during the filming of a number of very famous movies (including One Million Years BC) thanks to its unique and peculiar landscape.
This is not only the highest mountain in Tenerife but also in any Spanish territory, so you’d really be missing out if you don’t get the chance to visit. You won’t struggle to spot it, as Teide is visible from almost any point on the island – including the beach!
You won’t have to climb up the Teide Volcano if you don’t feel like it. You can take a cable car, and gaze out at the terrain and natural beauty that surrounds the mountain as you travel upwards.
