The surrounding area is sparsely populated, so that you enjoy peace and quiet there as well as fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the lusty, harsh volcanic landscape.  It is a place where the formation history of the island is unfolded in front of your eyes.

There are also a variety of destinations for trips and hiking tours.  Those who go for this region certainly won't be disappointed.

El Diamante — the name says it all: a rough diamond turned into a sparkling gem.

Originally on this property there were only the formation walls of the living room. With loving attention to the detail the owners created a dreamlike country-style Holiday Home, which was finished in 2013.

The Holiday House is a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday for only one or two befriended couples.

Between the two wings of the Holiday House there is a terrace which is accessible from almost every room with wooden benches and a table with chairs.

It is a nice place to enjoy a dreamlike view of the mountains and the volcanic landscape in the south, the unspoilt nature and the deep blue Atlantic Ocean as far as the horizon.

On clear days you can actually see the neighbouring islands Tenerife, La Gomera amd El Hierro.

There is another beautiful view point on the Aljibe, a masonry water storage tank. 

In a separate small house there is a utility room with a washing machine. Next to it there is a terrace sheltered from the wind and not visible from outside - a perfect place for your sun loungers.

Behind the house a nice green, terraced area with trees extends uphill.

Both volcanos are situated below Fuencaliente.

Other beaches in the surrounding area are Punta Larga, Playa de Echentive, Playa Nueva and Playa del Faro at the light house. The beaches are sandy, in places stony and they are noticeable less frequented than the large beaches in the west.

Only 6 to 8 kilometres from El Diamante you find the two excellent restaurants La Cabaña and La Era. There are all kinds of shopping facilities, restaurants, bars, banks and a gas station in the nearby Fuencaliente / Los Canarios and Villa de Mazo, which is almost the same distance from the Holiday House. On weekends you find a nice food and craft market there.
