bbq-cho-panchoAre you up for some recreation today? When was the last time you had a barbecue in the woods? Grab some marinated chicken and tasty burgers in Mercadona and drive up for some fresh air and chill in the forests.

Today you will:

  • Drive less than one hour one away.
  • Run away from crowded beaches.
  • Visit Canarian woods.
  • Have a different day.


As you leave Pearly Grey Ocean Club drive towards Las Americas, and take TF-28 and drive uphill towards San Miguel. From there follow your sat nav, where finally you will notice signs to Cho Pancho, turn right here and keep driving. Plenty of parking awaits.

Cho Pancho is a recreation area of almost 42.000 square meters. It’s usually chosen by local Canarians to spend the weekend and run away from the daily routine. Cho Pancho is often chosen to celebrate birthdays or simply friends’ gatherings. The area offers built in stove and firewood, long tables and benches, water and stone sinks, as well as bathroom in the middle of the forest! It perhaps is the best and most equipped barbecue area ever.


Not necessarily you have to choose this for a barbecue, it is also great for a simple walking or hiking as it is situated on the hilly area overlooking the ocean in the horizon. If it’s a clear sunny day, you will be able to see its beauty. Otherwise, on a cloudier day, make sure you have some warm clothing, it is much cooler up there.

Once you are back to Pearly Grey Ocean Club, sit back and relax in The Edge overlooking the ocean and a beautiful La Gomera island.

When you’re out and about discovering Tenerife, it’s best to have a rent-a-car. Pearly Grey recommends Pouls Auto for your car rental requirements. Based here in Callao Salvaje they offer Pearly Grey guests a great deal. Telephone +34 922740742 or email
