The Wild coast SPAIN/ANAGA, TENERIFE, CANARY ISLANDS The Anaga peninsula is a remote and wild corner of Tenerife, with a brutally rocky coastline and misty laurel forests, accessible only through ancient hiking trails, that have been renovated in recent years. Most of these start or end at the coast. Many species in the Canary Islands, especially among the plants, are so-called endemics – meaning they live only there and nowhere else on Earth. More than 30% of the land area of the Canary Islands are Natura 2000 reserves.
