Canary Islands Sights

El Médano

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 09/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Stretching for more than 2 km (a mile), this is the longest beach on the island and also one of the most distinctive—the conical top of Montaña Roja (Red Mountain) lies at its southern tip. The golden sands and exemplary facilities earn it the country's "Blue Flag" rating, and the gentle waves make for safe swimming. It's a good beach for those who want to try their hand at windsurfing. To get here, drive along the TF1 past the Reina Sofía Airport and take the TF64

south shortly afterwards. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
