This time we go to the North and there is nothing better than to start the day having breakfast with sea views in one of the terraces of Costa Teguise. After breakfast and if the weather is good, we could take a bath in the „Jablillo Beach“ or „Las Cucharas“.

We continue our way and we go to the inland, La Villa de Teguise waits us. We will walk through its narrow streets and refresh ourselves by drinking something in one of the terraces that we will find in its cobbled streets. We continue the way and pass the town of Los Valles, a little further on we find a detour to the Hermitage of Las Nieves. A good option to get stunning views of the Famara coast.

Keep going through the curves of Malpaso and arrive to the town of Haría, where the most carnivorous could taste good meat in one of its restaurants. And as we will have to low the lunch … Do you dare to go around the town and count the palm trees? Is it true that there are 1000 palm trees here?
