One of the most beautiful beaches in Tenerife, perfect for sun bathing, or ride a windsurf table...
El Medano is a quintessential beaches of Tenerife. It is located south of the island, about 60 kilometers from the capital, and over the years has been gradually becoming a tourist area, but fortunately, without overcrowding.
The beach is bounded on one side by the town of El Medano, and secondly, for Red Mountain, a volcanic crater of red sand, spectacular in all its grandeur.
From the beach of El Medano shows its fine white sand, perfect for lazing in the sun on hot summer days (and not so in summer), but also with high tide, the sea occupies enough of the beach, leaving so many small coves formed by the erosion of limestone common in that area. Because of this, and even with its 2 km long, can be said to be a fairly intimate beach where you can disconnect from the bustle of the big city.
In addition, El Medano is situated in a strategic place, since the continuous wind currents (over 300 days of wind per year) makes it perfect for practicing sports such as windsurfing and kite surfing, which also take into El Medano the perfect venue for valid trials and competitions for the World Championships, and is common to see real professionals stars of these sports practicing there.
