As one of Tenerife’s oldest port cities, Puerto de la Cruz embodies a hip, island personality, while still retaining its historic fishing village charm.
Explore Puerto de la Cruz's surroundings by going to Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Parque Rural de Anaga, Sendero de los Sentidos, &more) and Icod de los Vinos (Parque del Drago, Cueva del Viento, &more). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Loro Parque, see the interesting displays at Museo del Pescador, get great views at Mirador de Amogoje, and stroll around Plaza Victor Perez.

El Medano

El Medano ©
El Médano is a town in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona, on the island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands.A place of strong winds, it has been the site for various windsurfing competitions and championships, though in recent years, an increase in the number of high-rise hotels and apartment buildings has reduced these winds' power. Change things up with these side-trips from El Medano: Reserva Natural Especial del Malpais de Guimar (in Guimar) and Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria (in Candelaria). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa El Medano, pause for some photo ops at Monumento Natural Montana Pelada, look for gifts at Bike Point El Medano, and stroll through Playa de la Tejita.

To find photos and other tourist information, read our El Medano trip planner.

El Medano is just a stone's throw from Costa Adeje. In March, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 18°C. On the 23rd (Mon), you're off to home.
