Apartments in El Medano

We rent apartments, villas and holiday houses in El Medano. This lovely harbour village is a typical Spanish and sportive town. No neon lights, pubs and fish & chips shops. It's a world famous spot for wind and kite surfers, thanks to the everblowing wind, Great waves and in July the Windsurf World Cup. Thanks to these sportive setting it is great family holiday enviroment. The beach is golden, the towncenter is car free, so a very safe area for the children.

Welcome to El Medano

The village is situated on the south west coast of Tenerife, entirely bordering the sea with a wooden ramp for strolling along the beach front. The beach of El Medano is about 3 kilometres long stretching from the centre to the rusty-red mountain of Montana Roja.

El Medano is primarily a pedestrian village with a large square in the centre where the locals celebrate and organize activities. Many Canarios (inhabitants of the Canary Islands) visit El Medano over the weekends. Around the square some restaurants, a hotel and a children's playground are located. The square ends at the central beach where many of the locals meet. In the morning the elderly villagers come for a swim, to be joined from eleven onwards by the mothers and children.

The afternoon is fairly quiet and from early evening until night the square is a real meeting place for young and old with singing, dancing and festivities in the open air. Merry-go-rounds, trampolines, cafe pavements; one huge party. The price level in El Medano is a separate attractive feature: you can shop, dine and drink at relatively low prices.
