Roque of Garachico – Tenerife Natural Monument
The roque is a volcanic geological formation of basalt flows that has been isolated due to the retreat of the coast by marine erosion.
The vegetation in Roque de Garachico is scarce, its majority presence is cardones and tabaibas.
Its walls constitute a nesting point and refuge for various migratory birds and others that are threatened such as the Bulwer’s Petrel, the small shearwater or the Madeira paiño.
