Granadilla de Abona south of Tenerife
Agriculture, gentle tourism on the coast, tourism in the countryside such as holidays on a holiday finca in El Salto and many plantations characterize the appearance of the municipality of Granadilla.
The products from the local agriculture of Granadilla are well-known all over the island and sold on weekends at the farmers' market Mercadillo de Agricultura. The product range contains wine, cereal and especially vegetables, potatoes and pulses.
When you drive on the old mountain road, you come to many small villages with nice houses. In some villages, it seems as if time stands still. In each village, you find one or more bars to take a rest and to eat typical local food or the famous tapas. But also many gas stations contain a small restaurant, where you can get almost always excellent and cheap food.
The fascinating mountain landscape of Tenerife pleases especially our hiking friends with jagged landscapes, wild gorges and dreamlike view of the coastal towns and the Atlantic.
The coastal towns of the municipality of Granadilla are El Medano, Los Abrigos, Las Galletas, Costa del Silencio.
The coastal town of El Médano with its 6 km long natural sandy beach is best-known and popular with holiday-makers as well as locals.
El Médano has a wonderful plaza by the sea and a very child- and family-friendly sandy beach that slopes down gently into to water. You can go for a long walk or sometimes watch the kite surfers on the beach of El Médano. Just behind the mountain Montaña Roja that fits perfectly into the water, there is the La Tejita beach. Among others, there is an isolated nudist bathing bay. From there, the beach extends to the next town - Los Abrigos. Los Abrigos offers many fishing restaurants by the sea. Here, fishermen still go fishing every day.
