Bodyboarding in La Machacona

A bodyboarding wave with a long, pristine tube in Tenerife
La Machacona is loved for its impressive long, pristine tube and the high quality bodyboarding it offers. The left is a machine that generates powerful tubes, but the right can also be ridden. It is located on the south coast of the island of Tenerife, between El Médano and Los Abrigos. Although the spot is not visible from the road, the break is next to La Tejita beach, where there is a camping area which is easily accessible. There are no services nearby, but you can park in the area.
A summer spot for advanced level riders next to La Tejita
The wave in La Machacona breaks over volcanic rock very close to the shore around high tide and when there is a south swell. The spot demands control and is only suitable for advanced riders. The wave holds up well on days when the wind blows from the north, but it really comes into its own when the sea is glassy. The best conditions are between June and September at high tide with northerly winds and S-SE swell. You can access the spot on foot. Be aware that on big days this is a very heavy wave with strong currents.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
