Vacation in El Médano

El Medano, the surfing capital of the island

El Médano, a former fishing village, has some of the island's best beaches - fine golden sand rather than the black lava sand found at many other resorts.

The beaches, over a mile long, are gently sloping and the shallow waters of the bay make it an ideal location for families with small children.
