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. Not to forget its naturist beach by the depicted Montaña Roja. 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.
El Medano has a geology that creates almost golden beaches. How? Yellow pumice rocks and a rather African light do that.
Our quiet dog Jesse was allowed inside this restaurant. On a top veranda, though.

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious lunch on its first floor terrace with a breath taking sea view. By the way, the delicious seafood and good wine were not expensive at all.
Tips for nightlife, eating out, English breakfast and the like are to follow soon.
Crime and pickpockets don't come to mind in this part of Southern Tenerife. Seafood, Tapas, local or Jerez wine, good company and action sports are more important there than luxury thrills.
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.
