El Médano Beach is in the district of Granadilla de Abona, next to the small seaside resort of the same name. It is the longest beach on the island, a two-kilometre stretch of fine golden sand that ends at a volcanic cone called "Montaña Rojo" (Red Mountain). The surrounding area is a protected nature reserve due to its important ecological value. The beach has a range of facilities and a very pleasant seafront walk to stroll along. Above all, El Médano beach stands out for being the ideal place to go windsurfing. The winds in this area, especially from spring to September, do not deter other beachgoers who enjoy the calm, shallow waters of this beach and a family-friendly atmosphere where locals and tourists from all over the world mix happily together.
