MTB Bike Tour Tenerife: Costa del Silencio – El Medano – Palm Mar
Tenerife by bike for everyone
This simple itinerary proposed by Cycling in Tenerife is ideal for MTB beginners. The route, which encompasses seaside resorts, coastal views and lava paths, was created specifically on very safe paths along some corners of the island that are as evocative as they are accessible and can be modified by shortening it in the short version for families with children.
Your experience will begin with the pick-up from your hotel by minivan, which will take us to the starting village Costa del Silencio for the initial briefing.
We will individually set up and adjust your bikes and depart immediately for the beginning of our off-road route, heading north towards Amarilla Golf. After crossing the Golf del Sur, we will arrive in Los Abrigos, an old fishing village that is very welcoming and well known for its elevated position on the port. We will continue our pedaling crossing the Playa della Tejita, up to the turning point located in the windsurf paradise El Medano.
From here we will enjoy the wonderful view of Montagna Roja and taste a fresh batido de fruta and take some photos. The return is planned by an alternative road, for an evocative passage near the south airport Reina Sofia, crossing banana plantations, in the direction of the natural reserve Malpais Punta de la Rasca, famous for the majestic Lighthouse Punte de Rasca, where we will stop one last time before returning to the meeting point with our minivan.
The tour presents a low level of difficulty both with mountain bikes and with e-bikes. During the ride we will cross some short stretches of volcanic rock and compacted dirt, but the itinerary remains simple even for MTB beginners.
