El Medano – Red Mountain Volcano

We started from El Médano, Tenerife and went down the longest stairs of the town towards the beach and its promenade. We turn left and immediately we see what our destinations will be.

We entered immediately and walked through the sand of El Medano beach, in the Natural Reserve of the Red Mountain. We continue through the area marked towards the Red Mountain Volcano.

It has no loss is all day and every day quite crowded. At the top we can see El Médano, Tejita beach, Tenerife Sur Airport and Teide Pic.

We descend initially along the same road to turn right towards Montaña del Bocinegro and on its descent we can see an old World War II bunker.

We continue along the Los Balos beach and arriving to the village we see another bunker between windsurfers and kitesurfers.

Easy route that serves to stretch the legs. It has no chance of loss and is highly recommended!
