   El Medano 


Surrounded by golden sand stretching as far as the eye can see, El Medano has the most amount of beach of all in Tenerife and is situated between the largest natural beaches of Tenerife, the Playa Grande and the Playa Tejita. It's an amazing place to relax and wind down. In the heart of the the town you will find a large town square in front of the main beach where they hold many incredible local fiestas every summer and a spectacular annual public firework display across the bay. With many charming beach bars and restaurants on the square where you can take a barraquito (spanish coffee) or eat tapas or sea food you will never have search far.

Enjoy the warmth of the sunshine stroking your skin and go for a walk along beach on the enchanting and cosy wooden boulevard that goes all along the beach up to "kite" beach and through the "medanos" rocky dunes. As El Medano is the surf mekka of Tenerife and still one of the world's best windsurfing/kitesurfing locations you will never get bored watching!

Experience the laid back atmosphere of El Medano, the friendliness of the locals and the tranquillity of the ocean. El Medano is perfect for couples, friends & families and anyone who is looking for a real taste of Tenerife.
