El Medano - Tenerife El Medano is situated on the southern side of the island about ten to fifteen minutes from the airport and approximately twenty minutes by car from Playa de Las Americas. El Medano offers a relaxed and uncommercialised atmosphere, a contrasting alternative to the livelier resorts further round the coast. Having one of the largest natural and safe beaches on Tenerife, El Medano is popular for windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts. Mountain biking and road biking is also available from the resort. El Medano has a small harbour and an attractive sea front with a long wooden board walk overlooking the golden sand. Restaurants and small cafes are plentiful and varied offering a full range of meals, snacks and pastries in pleasant sea front surroundings or tucked away in a quiet corner. Accommodation in the town varies from one bedroom apartments to sea front apartments and larger villas with private pools. Proximity to the airport does make certain parts of the town susceptible to some aircraft noise. Within ten minutes drive is the village of Los Abrigos famed for its locally caught fish which are served in the waterfront restaurants. A further two minutes drive will take you to the resort of Golf del Sur where there are three nine hole golf courses. Villa and Apartment Listings There are 5 listings in El Medano.
