El Rosario, one of our jewels of the south coast of Tenerife

El Rosario, on the south coast of Tenerife, in Spain, is one of those places privileged by nature. Surrounded by wooded landscapes, sunny coastline, vegetation, and trails, it is an ideal destination to enjoy with the family; recreate and relax, appreciating the sea. 

A territory full of nuances that invites you to have fun, to relax, to evoke memories, to rest. It is a destination, whose capital owes its name to the patron saint, the Virgin of the Rosary, is appreciated by locals and visited by foreigners.

Its greatest uniqueness is the variation of its boundaries, agreed in the seventies of the twentieth century. 

Therefore, it is located to the east of Tenerife, on the southern slope of the mountain range and sheltered from the winds of Tabaiba and Radazul. Along 4.52 kilometers of coastline the autonomous cities of Santa Cruz, La Laguna, Tacoronte, La Matanza, El Sauzal and Candelaria converge.

North, South or Coast of Tenerife?

On the island of eternal spring, as Tenerife is known, the temperature is very pleasant throughout the year, which is around 20 ° C, which translates into a balanced climate (little cold in winter and little heat in summer), little rain and always clear skies. 

Most of the properties are located along the island or near the coast, however, we recommend that you make a detailed search and choose the one that best suits your needs. 

Tenerife is divided into north and south, both with very different characteristics and realities, in the residential area.

To the south is the area with the largest number of tourists, who, coming from different parts of the world, have invested in homes that they have little use for during the year. 

To the north is Santa Cruz, the most populated city on the island. Innovative and cosmopolitan, its houses are dream homes, planned and built on easily accessible spaces. 

If you are thinking of investing in a second home or vacation place, this is a very good option.
