Heading south from the peaceful town of Fasnia, the TF-28 (which the locals fondly call "la vieja", meaning the old road) wends its way through arid lands shaped by the expert hands of local farmers. This well-maintained road will take you past the villages of Cruz del Roque and Icor on the way to Villa de Arico. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by the church of San Juan Bautista (John the Baptist), the most prominent among its historic buildings

Back on the road again, you will come to Granadilla, a town that also houses a number of interesting buildings, including the former monastery of San Luis which has now become a museum, or the church of Saint Anthony of Padua dating from the early 18th century. From here, the Las Cañadas road takes you past the town of Vilaflor and out into the spectacular Lunar Landscape. A long trail can take you to discover the unique shapes and forms created by this volcanic land. Further on is the town of San Miguel de Abona. From high up at the Centinela lookout point, you can look down over the hamlet of Hoya, a great example of traditional Canarian architecture in a breathtaking setting.

The distance from Granadilla to the coast takes just a few minutes to cover by car. From the modern southern motorway, take the San Isidro junction to reach the beaches of El Médano, the most popular destination for windsurfing enthusiasts and professionals. The beaches of El Cabezo, El Médano and La Jaquita are absolutely ideal settings for this thrilling sport. There are plenty of other beaches in the region too, such as Porís de Abona, Playa Grande and Abades in Arico, and Los Roques and Abrigo in Fasnia. On the coast by San Miguel you will also find two of the Island's golf courses, as well as the spectacular Natural Monument of Montaña Amarilla (Yellow Mountain) which will appeal to nature lovers.
