Playa La Tejita is located in El Médan, next to the volcanic cone of Montaña Roja (Red Mountain). The area is a protected natural reservation (part of the Montaña Roja National Reservation), which means that access by car is not permitted. Visitors can use the parking area located a few hundred meters from the beach itself. The beach is not very crowded, even though it is truly beautiful, and this is mostly due to the occasionally high waves that wash over it. The beach is perfect for surfers, as well as those who simply enjoy the colors of the waves while they bask in the sun. Sun beds are available for rent at the beach, and the beach is truly worth a visit.
Skinny dipping is permitted on this beach, and this is particularly common on the east side of the beach, at the foot of the Montaña Roja.
