The small pueblo (village) of Fataga nestles in the so-called Valley of the Thousand Palms, in a picturesque setting of tall cliffs, palms and fruit trees – 30 minutes north of the beach resort, Playa del Inglés.

Perched on a rock threatening to precipitate into the gorge, this enchanted mountain village with charming rural houses, palm groves and a quaint church is considered the most beautiful village on the island. Once there, you might as well visit the pretty craft shops with all sorts of handmade products to take home as souvenirs, such as shawls, pottery or wickerwork.

There are also several pleasant restaurants and bars inviting you to sit and enjoy the pleasures of life in beautiful and tranquil surroundings.

Near the village you will find the two presas (reservoirs) de Chira and Las Niñas, both set in superb surroundings, which definitely deserve a visit because of the magnificent views and tranquility these places have to offer.

On your way out of Fataga and further down south don’t miss the unique experience of a camel ride in the Barranco de Fataga – that’s, if you dare! See more on our Camel Safari page.
