Southward facing, Playa de la Tejita is located immediately to the west of the hill called Montana Rosa, a short distance from Tenerife Sud International Airport. One of the island’s clothing optional beaches, the dark coloured sands run for around a kilometre, giving plenty of options for seclusion for those looking to go au naturel. Away from the tide line it is edged by shingle.

At the furthest point from the summit of Montana Rosa are a block of sun loungers and their accompanying umbrellas, as well as a small kiosk for basic refreshments. 

Strong currents rolling in directly from the Atlantic mean Playa de la Tejita is not the ideal swimming beach, however it is popular with windsurfers and kite surfers because of the near constant winds. It hosted the World Windsurfing Championships in 2015.
