Granadilla de Abona, a holiday in complete relaxation, immersed in the extraordinary beauty of unspoiled nature and small villages overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with an authentic taste.
Granadilla de Abona is a Spanish municipality (ayuntamento), located in the south of the island of Tenerife and covers an area of 162.43 km2 from the coast to the summit of Montaña Guajara (2,718 meters high).
Together with Fasnia, Arico, Vilaflor de Chasna, San Miguel de Abona and Arona it forms the region of Chasna.
The municipality of Granadilla, located 650 meters above sea level, is a historical concentration, in fact here is the largest number of Cultural Heritage, as not to mention the Church of St. Anthony of Padua and the Franciscan Convent of San Luis Obispo. And it is here, that in the distant 1519, it lodged the fleet of Ferdinando Magellano in his first trip of circumnavigation of the world.
Towards the coast there is the Reina Sofía airport, also known as the Tenerife South airport, airport of over 160 airlines, an international crossroads, whose arrivals and departures follow one another at a dizzying pace.
Located on the south coast, near the airport, we find El Médano, fabulous country, mix between traditional village and seafront tourist resort, perfect for those who want to experience true Canarian hospitality.
El Médano is a very popular resort for kite-surfing and wind-surf lovers, thanks to the almost permanent winds that create perfect waves. In fact, for some years now it has hosted the PWA World Cup where the best windsurfers in the world compete.
The two splendid red-clay volcanoes, Montaña Roja and Bocinegro, divide the two main beaches of El Médano, Playa el Medano and Playa la Tejita, the latter little treasure of Tenerife; a vast beach, one kilometer long, of fine sand isolated from urban areas.
Other sites of interest in the municipality are the natural monuments of Montaña Pelada, Los Derriscaderos, Montaña Colorada, Corona Forestal, the Paisaje Lunar (lunar landscape) of Los Escurriales and Los Derriscaderos, which offer different landscapes of great geological and natural interest.
So, if you are looking for a place to fully enjoy hiking and mountain sports, without renouncing the beautiful beaches, Granadilla de Abona will be for you.
From a real estate point of view, the whole area of Granadilla de Abona offers numerous possibilities as the prices of apartments and villas are lower than in the Los Cristianos-Adeje area. Good opportunities for those looking for a main house, a second home or a house for investment use in a quiet location.
