Tiny El Medano Tenerife for big adventure sports and leisure.
El Medano Tenerife with its red peak Montaña Roja is a phenomenal place.
Red, blue, brown and white boats dance in its Kobald blue bay. Powerful winds lift kite boarders from impressive swells high up into the air.
The Medanos (sandy hills) make up 2km natural beaches. They are unrivaled on the island by size and quality alone. By the way, a good 500 years ago, Guanches could still venture in its low wetlands behind dunes and collect small fish called Gueldes and the like.
El Medano has a geology that creates almost golden beaches.
How? Yellow pumice rocks and a rather African light do that.
The laid back life style of El Medano Tenerife
- No big, fancy resorts and no mass tourism
- Normally, the Tenerife holiday home, such as a studio or apartment is prefered by the surf fans.
- Scenes with Tenerife flyfishing at El Medano with a nonchallant fisherman with dog and a totally stress free fisher boy
- A big easy go village of roughly 7000 inhabitants, only.
- Deep blue waters in a bay where two pretty SUP surf girls in bikinis are not unusual.
Restaurant El Timon that has balcony above the sea is as laid back as it could get. There our quiet dog was allowed inside with us, on a top veranda though.
Live and let live? Lol, by the looks of it.
Let El Medano Tenerife remain the way it is
Often imperfect and laid back
Charming and mysterious
Down to earth and affordable
Warm and welcoming
Competitive in its own way

Tips for nightlife, eating out, English breakfast and the like are to follow soon.
Crime and pickpockets don't come to mind in this part of Southern Tenerife. Seafood, Tapas, local or Jerez wine, good company and action sports are more important there than luxury thrills.
