In its environment highlights a protected area of 166 hectares known as the Red Mountain, a volcanic crater of reddish sand semi destroyed by the erosive action of the sea, emerged with a half and half submerged.

It is considered one of the prime examples of inorganic sand habitat in Tenerife. Given to the extreme aridity of the area you will often see native birds as the bird Moor, the short-toed lark, the curlew, the broker or the lame bird.

Another place that deserves to be mentioned is the Bald Mountain, a volcanic cone that has a boiler of about 1 kilometer in diameter. The geological formation of this building has played a very important successive violent explosions resulting from the vaporization of water from the sea. It is also a protected area of 152.7 hectares where you can observe the presence of birds Moors, Cory's shearwaters and menders.

Playa El Medano. Beaches El Medano has two magnificent beaches, the beach of La Tejita and El Medano, with a relatively large extension of 1.5 kilometers.

These two beaches are separated by Mountain Red, reddish pyroclastic cone where erosion has carved a cliff about 50 meters high and 170 meters above sea level which dominate this coastal area. Slightly further east is another very interesting volcanic outcrop in which we can distinguish Montaña Pelada, and beside it a boiler explosion.

The beaches of this town are a strong appeal, although the foreign population is not relevant. However.

El Medano has attracted the inhabitants of the island capital and the residents of the municipality itself, becoming a major hub of the secondary residence.
