El Sauzal (Spanish meaning willow tree) is located on the north coast of Tenerife 19 to 20 km E of Puerto de la Cruz, about 20 km SSW of the island's capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, NE of Los Cristianos and Las Américas of Arona and WSW of Tenerife North Airport.
The population is 9.100 (1 January 2013), its density is 451.50/km² and the area is 18.31 km². The elevation is 300 m. Santa Úrsula is linked with the TF2 superhighway and the old highway linking Icod de los Vinos and the capital. The lower lands, near the Atlantic are mainly dedicated to farming, with the urban areas covering the hills are to the southeast. Its climate is warm with some heavy rains giving lush vegetation.
Much of the area was made up of farmlands, but more recently this has shifted to housing with immaculate white villas lining the eastern slopes. Consequently, its population has shifted from rural to mainly urban and tourism. El Sauzal has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, churches, a beach, a football stadium at Las Breñas, a post office and a few squares plazas.
