El Medano – a city located on the southern coast of the island – a place of pilgrimage for fans of windsurfing and kiting. The constant crosswinds and the year-round season create a unique opportunity for the development of these sports. International windsurfing competitions have been held here several times. Since El Médano is not a distinctly touristy area, there is a local flavor and colorful Canarian and national holidays and festivals. The city has a beautiful promenade and an equipped sandy beach. The city has a developed infrastructure: shopping centers, banks, educational institutions and bus connections with other areas of Tenerife. Tourists coming to El Médano stay in the private sector or in a small number of available hotels.
