About  El Médano

  El Médano has long been popular with island residents, because of its natural sandy beaches and year round sunny climate. It is between two mountains with cliffs into the sea.  Both Montaña Pelada, ‘the bald mountain’, and ‘the red mountain, Montaña Roja, are Nature Reserve areas and can be climbed in less than half an hour giving extensive views.

 Tejita Playa is beneath the west side of  Montaña Roja . This beach is ideal for beach picnics and now has a beach bar, loungers and palm-leaf covered roundels. Nearest to the mountain is a secluded small naturist beach, and the sea here is fine for snorkelling. This bay is used by windsurfers and kite boarders when the wind is from the west.

Playa El Médano. This is  the longest natural sandy beach in Tenerife. It stretches from Plaza de El Médano, the town square, to foot of Montaña Roja to the west. There are wide variety of restaurants and bars around the square and along the boardwalk at the top of the beach. This whole area is traffic free.  By the square the beach is sheltered from the predominantly easterly wind by the Hotel El Medano which extends out over the sea. Towards Montaña Roja the bay is very popular with wind surfers and kite boarders and there are shops for their requirements.

 Playa El Cabezo. To the east of El Meulle, the small harbour, is Playa El Cabezo, ‘The head’. Although rocky it is the favoured area for experienced windsurfers and kite boarders because the wind and wave conditions are often to their liking. A refreshment bar on the beach provides the social focus.

Playa de la Jaquita. Further along the coast the bay area beside the Hotel Las Arenas is used by those learning the sport.

Pelada Cove. Beneath Montaña Pelada is the sandy beach  Ensenada de la Pelada. It is an undeveloped beach where beachwear is optional, ideal for sunbathing and swimming. Under the unusual weather-sculptured cliffs is a good snorkelling area.

 Shopping. There are a good variety of small shops in El Médano including a pharmacy, opticians, photographers, and of course many small boutiques, souvenir and gift shops. Also, there are several small supermarkets as well as one large one, Hiperdino.  In the town square is the Tourist Information Office and a Bank and the taxi stand. The town has many good restaurants, including Italian, Chinese and Japanese.

Busses. There is a good bus service called Titsa . The local name for a bus is gua-gua, pronounced ‘gwa-gwa’  Find your gua-gua at the harbour, El Meulle, to go to Santa Cruz, Granadilla, Los Cristianos and Las Americas.

Doctors.    El Médano has a new health centre and there is a very good English doctor in Los Cristianos.        She has her surgery in the line of shops attached to the Arona Gran Hotel.  It is  next door to the pharmacy. I can recommend her. It is best to book an appointment to avoid what could be a long wait. Telephone 922 798226
