Cabildo de Tenerife



What is it?

Ijuana Nature Reserve is located within the Anaga Country Park Protected Area. It is a craggy, difficult-to-reach area that is of great environmental importance owing to the spurge and halophilous ecosystems (those with an extremely high concentration of salt), in addition to numerous very well-preserved endemic species. Moreover, it also contains geomorphological structures that typify the island’s geography, such as the Antequera Peninsula and Roque de Juan Bay, and lend the area significant value in landscape terms

Getting there

As the legislation pertaining to the conservation of protected natural areas prohibits human entry to nature reserves for non-scientific purposes, information on how to access the park cannot be provided.
