Playa San Juan

One of the most popular beaches among Tenerife residents.

In the south of Tenerife you will find one of the local residents' favourite beaches on the island: El Médano, a beach of golden sand, shallow waters and moderates wave with all the necessary services an urban beach requires.

Playa El Medano

Over time the centre of El Médano has become an important second home base for many islanders and is a hugely popular spot for wind and kitesurfing due to constant winds, which gives the town a real buzz in the evening after a day spent on the beach.

A family friendly urban beach in El Médano with excellent accessibility

El Médano is a family friendly beach with sunbeds and parasols for hire, a beach promenade with restaurants and excellent accessibility for those with reduced mobility thanks to ramps, amphibian crutches and help in and out of the water during summer. The tourist facilities in the town include frontline apartments and hotels as well as equipment rental for water sports. And due to the nearby port of El Médano there is an anchoring zone for boats.
