La Playa de Leocadio Machado is located in El Médano, in Granadilla de Abona, on the island of Tenerife. It has an approximate length of 800 meters, with golden sand and runs from the end of the Playa de El Médano to the beginning of Playa de Montaña Roja.

The beach, named Leocadio Machado, in homage to the novelist of «El Loco de la playa», inspired by the town of El Médano; is the capital of surfing and kitesurfing in Tenerife.

Playa de Leocadio Machado is the highest point for windsurfers and kiters in Tenerife, so on good days you can see a multitude of colourful sails on the water and in the air.

However, the wind conditions are extremely demanding and are only suitable for advanced skiers.

If you don’t surf yourself, you can watch the lively hustle and bustle in the water from land, but it’s best to move to the neighbouring, more sheltered El Medano town beach for a leisurely swim and sunbathe.

Due to the strength of the trade winds that lash the beach all year round, this is a paradise for lovers of such water sports.
