Never came across such unfriendly staff. This was so bad that after ordering drinks , we decided to leave them untouched, pay abd go to another restaurant. I cannot imagine peopke visiting more than once and fully comprehend why the finger of god, to which this restaurant is named, decided to disappear in the waves.

To be honest, this stone formation is not existing anymore as it was some years ago. When I was there I did not even see this sight. Agaete is very nice to visit anyway.

We were the only Brits in the place and we're expecting some authentic Canarian flavours. The menu is presented in Spanish, German, English and French with some colour pictures. The translations are a bit misleading so I ended up with deep fried calamari rings (a huge plateful) when I'd have preferred the 'baby squids' and my partner had Argentinian sausage.... More

Take a spin to see it - worth the trip! It was December but we managed to take a dip in the sea - it was gorgeous.

The whole place, Puerto de Las Nieves, is a pretty place, we found it worth seeing. As for Dedo de Dios, it wasn't much to see, as the rocks have eroded away almost completely. On some houses there are painted pictures of the rocks, how they used to look.

Interesting to see but only if you are close by. We found a walk to the base from La Palmita, which gave some good views

This place is a nice rock formation. The beach, although of course is not forbidden, it is mainly used by locals.

Nice corner to swim. Have seen more interesting geological formations. Not worth additional efforts to get there.
