Stumbled across this town whilst looking for somewhere else, and so glad we did. Lovely quaint town with tapas bars and shops lining the boardwalk. Lots of kite surfing going on and brightly coloured kites flying on the sky. Enjoyed out time there.

My family and myself visited El Medano during our stay in Tenerife. This is quaint little place which is traditionally spanish. There are some great views to take in too, well worth a visit.

Not recommended. Also the small town is crowded: usual crime against the shore: large building and hotels everywhere. Move to la tejita instead: a few km west, immaculate and beautiful

Great beaches. Fabulous views. Vast range of water sports. Activities in the main square during summer like live music and kids foam parties. Easy parking.

Windy - hence the dozens of kite-surfers. Nice beaches - dark sand. Selection of shops and restaurants was good.

Yes there is a really good bus service from El Medano to lots of places on the island, the bus does not go to the hotel but it’s a short walk or taxi ride
