One of the best-conserved laurel Laurus forests in Tenerife. Formerly cultivated areas have been invaded by scrub, and vertical cliffs support characteristic vegetation. Human activities include the cutting of branches for use in tomato/banana cultivation.
This site holds the most significant numbers of Columba junoniae on Tenerife, and the main Puffinus puffinus breeding colony on the island. It is also important for other endemic birds.
