27 May Granadilla de Abona
Granadilla de Abona is a town of over 45,000 inhabitants which is 650 meters high on the sea winds through vegetation, small and large population centers up to the coasts of El Medano, in the south-east of the island of Tenerife.
It is bordered to the north by the Region of Teide which is the capital of La Orotava (despite its considerable distance as the Teide Region occupies the entire central part of the island), Arico, San Miguel de Abona and Villaflor.
The urban agglomeration of Granadilla de Abona represents a great intersection of tourist, commercial and productive activities which, in the month of April, even results in the Trade and Services Fair now at its 13th edition, without however losing the distinctive features of the town facing on the sea with its calm vital rhythms.
Granadilla de Abona almost becomes a unique town with San Isidro that winds from the TF1 motorway and is spread on the hill climb towards Granadilla joining the two inhabited centers.
However, the interesting hinterland of the coast offers a great naturalistic aspect such as the Monte Guajara that reaches 2,720 meters high, an inactive volcano whose “cone” can be reached either through a traditional road that leads you directly or using a very easy path, and which houses an astronomical observatory well known to the experts.
The coastal area is characterized by the Red Mountain Special Nature Reserve, Montaña Roja, a nature reserve that looms on the beach between Los Abrigos and El Medano, a monumental and now emblematic panoramic view of the south coast of Tenerife; excursions on foot and by bicycle make it one of the most valuable and spectacular natural “gyms” together with the splendid site of the Cueva del Hermano Pedro de San Jose de Betancur which can be reached by crossing a desert land called Little Sahara which for a few minutes brings us back to the rough North African dirt roads.
All this just a few meters from the landing strip of the Reina Sofia International Airport (TFS), second in importance to the Canary Islands which boasts a passenger traffic of approximately 10,500,000 units in constant and considerable increase.
