Between Los Abrigos and El Moderna and close to the South Airport.
There is a small beach Montana Roja (Red
Mountain) just beyond an outcrop of rocks at the eastern end of Playa Tejita.
While La Tejita is also a nude beach & everyone seemed quite relaxed
about nudist strolling along the full length of the beach you may feel
more comfortable being screened from the main beach (and sometimes the
wind too) behind the rocks that separate the two beaches.
Like Tejita this beach is under threat from a proposed deep water
port (Granadilla - this will be for tankers and containers not yachts)
the authorities want to build in the bay. The EC is currently
undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment but the Government
appears to think this will give the go ahead and announced money for the
project (October 2006) along with the expansion of the nearby airport.
Local campaigners against the port will need all the help they can get
to protect this area from development.

The beach from the other end ... typical a cloud arriving
just as I took the picture!
