If you fancy getting away from the beach or the pool for a day, why not pay a visit to the Roque Nublo? This translates to mean “Cloud Rock” and Roque Nublo is the second highest rock in Gran Canaria at 1809 metres.
It is the most famous rock on the island and you can see amazing views from that height, including Tenerife. Sunset is a great time to visit Roque Nublo.
You will need decent walking shoes and something with sleeves because the air can be very cool at that height. You might already have done some walking and hiking in Gran Canaria and this isn’t a difficult walk at all but be prepared for the drop in temperature.
There is a parking lot nearby and you need to walk via the small footpath in Ayacata to the Pico de las Nieves.
