Beach Bliss and Mountain Exploration
You’ll encounter the island’s longest beach during your time in El Medano, the two kilometre stretch of paradise that is Playa Tejita. Back from the sand is a vibrant boardwalk, lined by great eateries and lively bars, offering a flavour of the Canaries via some wonderful authentic meals. Back on the sand or in the sea, you can burn off those extra calories you’ve acquired from the Spanish cuisine through numerous water sports. Wind and kite-surfing are very popular here given the windy conditions and great waves, hosting various tournaments and championships throughout the year.
If you can stay in one of the hotels with a view of the Montana Roja, then you’re in luck; but nothing beats immersing yourself in the splendour of the mountain scenery first-hand. Head into the nature reserve surrounding the mountain during your El Medano holidays and enjoy some wonderful hiking and wildlife encounters – a wonderful way to balance beach and nature during your time around El Medano.
