El Medano Holidays Guide
If you want to be off the plane and by the beach as quickly as possible, try a holiday in El Medano. Popular with wind surfers and kite surfers, this area of Tenerife's southern coast has more of a chilled vibe, with restaurants and surf shops dotted along the promenade.
Getting to, from and around El Medano
Situated in the south of the island, El Medano is one of the closest coastal towns to Tenerife's South airport, about a ten minute drive away. A taxi or hire car is probably your best option as you'll need to take a couple of buses if using public transport.
The town is quite self contained with supermarket, bars and restaurants, but if you want to head out of town, El Medano to Playa de las Americas will take a couple of buses and around 50-60 minute journey time, so a car is a much more convenient option.
Things to do in El Medano
El Medano beach is what attracts many holidaymakers to the town. The beaches here run along to Playa de Montana Roja and offer the wind and waves to enjoy some of the more adventurous sports like surfing and kitesurfing. Lessons can be booked in advance or at a number of the outlets along the promenade.
If you're feeling active on your holiday another way to spend a couple of hours is to head up Montana Roja, the red rock which sticks out to sea. Is a 171m volcano which offers far reaching views of the area, including El Medano, the airport and out to sea. Be sure to check El Medano on Trip Advisor for other activities in the area too.
Where to stay in El Medano
There are a couple of hotel options in El Medano and you'll also find holiday apartments for rent too. Try the Hotel Playa Sur at the southern end of the town with easy access to the beach and many rooms offering a partial sea view, or the Arenas del Mar which is a short walk away from El Medano.
