Holiday in Igueste de San Andrés, Tenerife

Igueste Vacation close to sea, mountains and nature

Igueste de San Andrés Map TenerifeIgueste de San Andrés is a small picturesque hamlet of around 700 inhabitants which belongs to Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The village is tucked away at the end of a coastal road and at the bottom of a valley close to the sea.
To many, Igueste is the next best thing to paradise, with tropical fruits like mango, guava, avocado and banana growing cheek by jowl.

Igueste is the starting point for several walks into the picturesque Anaga Mountains, one of which leads to the idyllic and remote Playa de Antequera, a beach of fine sand.

Igueste was an important lookout point in the defensive ring that warned the island capital Santa Cruz of an impending attack and a signal post left over from those bygone days is still to be found close by the village.

Some seven kilometres along the coast lies the golden sands of the man-made Playa Teresitas, created in the 1970s by an estimated four million bags of sand brought over from the Sahara desert.

This village is largely undisturbed by tourists and relaxation, peace and recovery are its main attractions.

Igueste has its own beach, Playa de las Gaviotas, but a visit is not for the faint harted since it involves a steep descent to a hidden bay, one of the reasons it remains so undisturbed. Its remoteness makes is popular with nudists.

Hiking and excursions in the surroundings of Igueste and Chamorga are perfect to discover the landscapes of the Anaga Mountains.
