El Medano Tenerife with its red peak Montaña Roja is a phenomenal place.
Red, blue, brown and white boats dance in its Kobald blue bay. Powerful winds lift kite boarders from impressive swells high up into the air.
The Medanos (sandy hills) make up 2km natural beaches. They are unrivaled on the island by size and quality alone. By the way, a good 500 years ago, Guanches could still venture in its low wetlands behind dunes and collect small fish called Gueldes and the like.
Spot Hotel Arenas in the opposite direction beyond another large bay. There young folks learn to surf on Playa La Jaquita.
Return towards town and Playa Chica with the tiny fishing boat port. Enter Paseo Marcial Garcia the pedestrian walk with its many shops, agencies, bars and restaurants and charming details where look out for posters of events.
News: Granadilla de Abona the administrator of the entire El Medano Tenerife area decided in summer 2015 to promote it from now on as Costa Magallanes after the Portuguese explorer Magalhães who stopped there on his discovery of the route to the East via the Atlantic and then via the Pacific ocean.
