Legend has it, the Barranco de Badajoz ravine is brimming with supernatural activity, so thrill-seekers have good reason to visit the nearby Santa Barbara Golf and Ocean Club this Halloween season. This haunted ravine on the coast of Tenerife is perfect for anyone seeking a spiritual, spooky adventure.
Barranco de Badajoz Legends
Start your ghost hunt with a drive up the coast of Tenerife to the town of Güímar. There you will find the famous Barranco de Badajoz ravine. Several paranormal encounters have been recorded over the years, and a few TV shows have investigated the area to see if they could find evidence of lurking souls. Some visitors report UFO sightings, ghosts and orbs appearing in photographs and disembodied voices heard in the ravine.
One famous story about the “Girl with the Pears” claims that in 1912, a young girl was sent to gather fruit from trees in the ravine — but she never returned. Some say she was taken into a cave by a mysterious figure dressed in white, before returning to the ravine. Decades later, the girl was spotted at the ravine looking exactly the same, and she was completely unaware of how much time had passed.
Search for the “Girl with the Pears” and countless other ghostly figures in the ravine, you’ll surely feel a chill in the air when traversing the Barranco de Badajoz.
Local Halloween Activities
For those seeking a less spooky activity, check for local events held in Tenerife during your visit. Several shopping centers and restaurants host family-friendly Halloween activities.
