We enjoyed the view of the surfers from the other side of the beach and the strong wind, but I would recommend visiting more to fill a slow day, rather than making it a longer trip.

Stumbled across this town whilst looking for somewhere else, and so glad we did. Lovely quaint town with tapas bars and shops lining the boardwalk. Lots of kite surfing going on and brightly coloured kites flying on the sky. Enjoyed out time there.

My family and myself visited El Medano during our stay in Tenerife. This is quaint little place which is traditionally spanish. There are some great views to take in too, well worth a visit.

Yes there is a really good bus service from El Medano to lots of places on the island, the bus does not go to the hotel but it’s a short walk or taxi ride
