El Medano holidays 2020 

Located on the south-east coast of Tenerife, just a short distance from the Tenerife South Airport lies the resort of El Medano. In spirit, El Medano is miles and miles from the bustling southern resorts of Playa de las Americas, Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos. Known as the surfing and kite-boarding capital of Tenerife, expect a much more laid-back, surfer-dude kind of vibe, with young families, a completely international array of tourists and plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes that cater for them.

With a choice of such excellent beaches - we’ll get into that in a second - El Medano is really perfect for those looking for a chilled-out Tenerife holiday. You may have visited the island before and had your fill of the buzz of the other southern resorts. Sometimes there’s only so much Playa de las Americas you can take, and although we love it, every now and then you need a holiday with a more relaxed vibe. El Medano is the answer. With a lack of British pubs, very few fast food restaurants and next-to-none late night bars, El Medano instead provides a chilled-out promenade around the main Playa el Medano beach.





There are excellent beaches in and around El Medano. Known as a top surfing and kiteboarding spot, you can imagine that the surf is high and the beaches busy, which they are. However, Playa el Medano lies at the heart of the resort and has a very different vibe. With gently shelving sand, restaurants and bars everywhere you turn and a children’s playground in the main Plaza de Principe de Asturia, this a top pick for a family day out.

Alternatively, you could head east to the beautifully natural Playa La Tejita. You can actually reach Playa la Tejita by foot from El Medano along the coastal path that hugs Montana Roja, the large rocky outcropping it's literally impossible to miss. Playa la Tejita is flanked by gorgeous sand dunes where you can find a peaceful spot for some sunbathing, or you can head to the beach bar which serves up cold beers. Delicious and peaceful.

There are other beaches, too, including Playa Machado, almost entirely full of surfers, Playa de La Pelada is infamous as one of Tenerife’s most popular nudist beaches and Playa el Cabezo, one of the best beaches for surfing on Tenerife and home to international competitions.
