Explore the diverse surroundings

Playa Bollullo

Two black sandy beaches, Playa Bollullo and Playa Los Patos are close to the finca, another one, Playa El Ancón is about 20 minutes away. At Playa Bollullo comfortable steps lead down to the beach. Downstairs there is a small beach bar that also provides you with tasty tapas, upstairs there is a restaurant. Because of the parking lots above the beach it is quite busy in summer.

Playa Los Patos

The Playa Los Patos (the ducks) is just below the finca. It is not officially accessible at the moment. In the "winter" this beach is relatively narrow. Bathing without clothes is allowed.

Walking and trekking in El Rincón

The immediate surroundings offer a wide variety of walking and trekking trails. Below the coastal trail are three beaches to discover. Or you can walk to Puerto de la Cruz in the center of the city, the Plaza del Charco with the port takes approximately 1 hour and half. The road to the Vista Paraíso cafeteria is challenging, but you will be rewarded with a fascinating view of the Orotava Valley and the sea - and with the delicious food offered by the owners.

Walk to Puerto: You can walk along the coast, passing by the beach of Bollullo, through a ravine that forms the border with Puerto, and closer to the coast to the highest part of Puerto, La Paz, in about 50 minutes.

Food & Drink

The daily opened San Diego Restaurant is located in the vicinity of Finca El Rincón and is recommended by almost all travel guides. Here you will find excellent meat and fish dishes and the tastiest desserts at reasonable prices. Many of our guests end up eating there daily.

Above the nearby Bollullo beach there is another restaurant.

From our finca you can see a yellow building at the top of the eastern slope. There you will find the Vista Paraíso Cafeteria, with a beautiful view of the valley and a good selection.

In Puerto de la Cruz, Orotava and also in Sta Ursula there is a great variety of good and very good restaurants.

Further west, in the Orotava valley, is El Monasterio,, a tastefully renovated and modified monastery complex, with a small park halfway to the second "Montañeta", one of the two small mountains of the Orotava valley, with several restaurants. You can walk to the top. It has a lot of charm to go there during the day, stay there until it gets dark and look at the valley on both occasions.

La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz

Orotava was founded by the natives, the Guanches, originally Berbers of North Africa, because of pirates who were in the distance from the sea, the Puerto de la Cruz much later than the port of La Orotava. It is worth walking through the old towns of Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz (around the Plaza del Charco with port) with a little desire to discover. Puerto has a fascinating promenade with a park of seawater pools of artistic design and the "Café de Paris", where good German cakes are always served. In Puerto there is also a botanical garden, which was already established in 1788 and contains a variety of tropical and subtropical plants and trees from the five continents. 'Abaco' is a beautiful Canarian manor house with a large courtyard on the outskirts of the city, where concerts are sometimes held. The animal park and entertainment "Loro-Parque" is almost obligatory for children.

You can climb up the Orotava valley, through the Orotava in the direction of the Teide, you can often go sideways to the agricultural area and take a walk or higher up to the pine forest. Shortly after its start there is a large picnic centre on the left - Caldera. There start several very attractive hiking trails. When the weather is cloudy, you can climb higher, through the clouds and almost always experience a blue sky.
