El Médano is a small resort on the south east coast of Tenerife very close to the south airport.
It is really a town on the sea front that has turned its self into a resort. El Médano is a very laid back and casual, with restaurants and bars lining the sea front promenade and around the main square, Plaza de Principe de Asturía, that is also situated on the sea front.
The town is clean and well-kept and very popular with windsurfers, mature holiday makers, families and windsurfing beach types.
In the back streets you will find restaurants, some right by the sea, where you can enjoy lunch or dinner overlooking the sea, or tapas a nice glass of wine. Restaurants are also to be found around the cobbled stoned lanes linking the two town centre squares, ranging from establishments serving locally caught fresh fish and seafood, traditional tapas and Spanish food, to pizza, pasta, crepes and ice-cream.
