Garafía

27.10.2021
The small natural beach in Garafía can only be reached on foot or by boat via an adventurous, steep path. Soft sand can only be found here in the summer months, otherwise the wild bay is stony. It is popular with surfers, but you should only swim close to the shore here - whirlpools and currents surprise even experienced swimmers. Photo: Kike Navarro

echium wildpretii ssp trichosiphon The pink viper's buglosses can be seen on Roque de Los Muchachos from May to June. To form its impressive inflorescence, the "tajinaste rosado" needs 3-5 years. By the way, Palmerian tajinaste have a greater genetic diversity than their red relative on Tenerife. Therefore, it is proposed to recognise the Palmerian tajinaste (previously Echium wildpretii ssp. trichosiphon) as a separate species under the name Echium perezii Sprague.

A small path leads down the steep coast to the old harbour. Goods were once loaded onto small ships from here and taken to the island capital Santa Cruz de La Palma. Three rocks lie in front of it in the Atlantic, and to the side you will find a small beach, which is very attractive at low tide and calm seas. Photos: Kike Navarro

The great-grandfather of Patricia Perdomo, who studied oenology, and her sister Lucía, an agricultural technician, already made wine here. In the protected location of the vineyards in Briesta , the Subzona Norte, they grow dark grape varieties such as Vijariego, Listán negro, Tintilla and Castellana, as well as the white grapes Albillo and Listán blanco. The red wine variety Negramoll grows on a lower terrace. Photos: Uka Roesch
