Scenes of Isla Baja, Tenerife's Secret Corner

As secrets go, Isla Baja in the north west of Tenerife isn’t a well kept one. Well, it is and it isn’t.

Millions of visitors to Tenerife will have visited one of Isla Baja’s treasures. Masca falls within the boundaries of Buenavista del Norte, one of the municipalities (boroughs) that make up the area known as Isla Baja. Garachico, another favourite on the coach excursion circuit, is also part of Isla Baja.

Less visited are the towns of El Tanque and Los Silos. The prettiest part of El Tanque lies away from the main roads that link the north west coast with the south west coast, whilst the streets of Los Silo are far too narrow to accommodate coaches. These historic lands, so sought after by the richest conquistadors, have slipped from the beaten track. It’s ironic that many of the routes most modern visitors follow are not the same as those which our Victorian counterparts tread.

Isla Baja isn’t particularly easy to get to from the main tourist resorts. This little fact does actually keep much of it secret.
