El Medano properties for sale Tenerife
El Médano, Tenerife
El Médano (the sand dune), which is located close to the Tenerife Reina Sofia Airport, on Tenerife's Eastern coast, is famous as Tenerife's home for water-sports, and can claim to be world class when it comes to sports such as windsurfing and kite surfing from several different beaches.
However, El Médano (pronounced with the emphasis on the "é" El Meh Dan O) has much more to offer than this, as it's location, only 15km or so from the southern tip, means one can be almost guaranteed good weather, no matter what time of year you are here.
El Medano’s location is also excellent for accessing the many local amenities and other small towns and facilities. The South airport is only a few minutes drive away, as are the Golf Courses at the fabulous 27-hole Golf del Sur and the 18 hole Amarilla Golf. Both golf courses have a huge number of bars and restaurants and other facilities, so much so that they are almost the size of a small town, and El Médano's nearest neighbour, Los Abrigos has some of Tenerife's best fish, seafood and fine dining restaurants located around it's picture postcard harbour.
Going North from El Médano, takes you to the Island's capital, Santa Cruz, around 35 minutes drive along the excellent TF1 motorway, and 20 minutes drive South takes you to the major resorts of South Tenerife, Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos.
However in it's own right, El Médano is a lovely small town with many excellent facilities, build around the large town square in front of the main beach, which is home to many fiestas and firework displays which take place, particularly in Summer time. Food in El Médano tends to be more traditional than you generally find in the South, with many fine tapas bars and restaurants serving delicious, typically Spanish food, usually at very attractive prices.
Next to El Médano is the famous Red Rock or Red Mountain (Montaña Roja) a volcanic cone, which is a protected nature reserve, and the beaches of Playa Grande and Playa Tejita. Access to El Teide, Spain's highest mountain and active volcano, is easily found from El Médano.
Compared to the flamboyant resorts of Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos, or even the neighbouring Golf del Sur, life in El Médano is much slower and quieter and it can be an excellent location to relax and unwind, yet still have easy accessibility to the other places when required.
In common with many of these coastal towns & villages in Tenerife, the language spoken by the local people is Spanish, however most these days understand English, although the ability to say hello and goodbye in Spanish is always appreciated by the local people!
For people interested in buying a place in the sun, El Médano has some very nice properties, a mixture of new and old and you can certainly expect to pay much less than you would in Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos, and enjoy the benefit of less tourist noise or hustle and bustle than the large resorts. Everything from a studio apartment to a villa is available, and many people from abroad have bought here, whether they sought a holiday home in the sun, or to permanently reside here.
