La Tahona Campsite Tenerife - a compact camping area

This is yet another legal camping area, situated up in the north, near San Juan de La Rambla. If you've been checking through the list of campsites on the "camping" main page, you'll have seen that some have really good facilities, such as showers, toilets, etc, but most are really basic.

La Tahona is one of these basic ones. It is situated right on the edge of the pine forests, so is nestling amongst the trees and heathland.

It's quite small, too, with an area of 400 square metres, only accommodating 10 people.

As I said, there are no showers, no toilets, no disabled access. All it offers is running water, car parking facilities and somewhere to pitch your tent.

Needless to say, though, it has the pretty much mandatory "recreation area", which has the usual closing times - 7:30pm in the winter and 9pm in the summer.

The manager for this site is based at the Casa Forestal Aguamansa, on the Carretera General and he can be contacted on (+34) 922 330701.

To find this campsite is a little tricky, but I'll do my best. You need, initially, to be travelling along the TF-5 north motorway in a westerly direction. Go right to the end of it, where the dual carriageway splits in two. Follow the road, passing under a bridge, where you should be in the right hand lane. Follow this round and, at the junction, turn right.

This will now take you across the bridge you've just passed under. After a few yards, you'll come to a small roundabout, where you should go straight on. This will then put you on the TF-342 road.

You must stay on this road for a very long time. It takes you up into the mountains and is a bit winding. You'll eventually pass through the town of El Guanche, but keep going. Soon after, you'll see a road sign saying "Icod el Alto 5" and you'll need to take the next right after this. This new road will be signposted "parque La Tahona", amongst other things.

From then on, it's still quite a long, winding road till you arrive at the campsite. Unfortunately, I can't provide more directions, but, hopefully, there'll be other signposts along the way, to guide you to your destination.
