The Plaza del Medano is filled with a large variety of creative and delicious tapas from the best restaurants, together with a good selection of  red and white wines, sweet and dry, young light wines or older wines with distinctions.   Many quality products from the Island like golden honey of all colours and flavours, wonderful breads, goat cheeses – fresh, semi-cured or mature are in abundance plus excellent traditional jams, sweets and cookies.

As well as many typically Canarian restaurants and bars, you’ll find many smart cafes and a variety of live entertainment.

Surfers and Windsurfers

Tenerife’s El Médano is the favourite place of surfers and windsurfing enthusiasts. El Médano attracts windsurfers due to the amount of wind the town receives and is well known for its many water sport competitions.

A firm favourite with the surfers and windsurfers is El Medano’s very own underground rock music club which has a great following on Facebook.

Walkers, Botanists and Naturalists

Anyone who loves nature and walking cannot fail to be enthralled by Red Mountain, popular with walkers, botanists and naturalists alike due to the number of rare and unusual plants that can be found there and on the surrounding dunes.
