Mirador del TimeDeze pagina in Nederlands
The Mirador del Time (locally known as El Time) is an viewing point with cafe on the top of a rock face 500metres above Tazacorte beach on the road from Los Llanos to Tijarafe and Puntagorda.
From the viewpoint is a magnificent view over the Aridane Valley, Tazacorte, the Cumbres, the entrance to the Caldera and the coast past Puerto Naos and towards Fuencaliente.
Looking north across the steep slope of La Punta you can see the village of Tijarafe and the Point (Punt) after which Puntagorda is named.
