These viewpoints are:
1. Mirador del Alto de Garajonay

2. Miradores del Rejo
Located at the top of the Rejo Ravine, they allow you to observe the ravine from its topmost point in the highlands, with the view continuing down to the bottom of the Hermigua ravine and the coast. Likewise, the immediate environment is an excellent place for observation of the attractive plant life which colonises the numerous rock walls which are to be found in the vicinity.
3. Mirador del Bailadero
Located at the crest of the island, they show an excellent panorama of the Conjunto de los Roques towards the south and a view of the head of the Hermigua Ravine towards the north. This is an excellent place to see pigeons passing by.
4. Miradores de los Roques
Located in the vicinity of the impressive set of volcanic pitons, it makes it possible to enjoy these geological monuments which make up one of the most impressive landscapes anywhere in the Park. It also enables you to see the piling up of basalt lava flows which make up the dominant geological substrate of the Park, the so-called horizontal basalts. Furthermore, on appropriate days, they are a superb place for watching the cascades of fog which come over the ridge and evaporate as they run down the southern side.
5. Mirador Cumbre de Tajaqué
Located in the highlands of the island, at the very edge of the Park, this viewing-point overlooks the erosive caldera of Benchijigua to the south, with its arid landscape standing in contrast to the leafiness and luxuriance of the El Cedro Ravine, which is oriented towards the north, covered in laurel woodland.
6. Mirador de Igualero
Located at the southern end of the Park, at the edge of the central plateau of the island, it offers a superb view of the Chipude Fortress and of the erosive Caldera of Erques. The viewing point has a monument devoted to the Gomeran whistling language.
7. Mirador de Vallehermoso
It offers a panoramic view of the northern slopes of the island in the borough of Vallehermoso where the most extensive juniper woods of the Canaries are to be found.
8. Mirador Lomo del Dinero
It offers a panoramic view of the valleys and hills of the northern slopes of the Park, covered in laurel woodland.
9. Mirador de Alojera (Piedras Hincadas).
A view of the east coast of the island with La Palma and El Hierro on the horizon, as well as the cliffs which run around the central plateau of the island where the National Park is located.
