South Tenerife, Canary Islands

El Médano

Located on the sunny southeast coast of Tenerife, El Médano translates as “The Sand Dune”.

Although handy to the nearby resorts of Playas de Las Américas and Los Cristianos, El Médano is yet affected by mass tourism.

Sothis Language Schools


This former fishing village is popular with water sports lovers, especially amongst the wind surfers and kite surfers. The locals and Spanish enjoy spending their holidays in this relaxing seaside town.

The sun shines all year round in El Médano and the humidity is low. The typical Canarian village has a beautiful square (plaza) in the centre and offers everything from pubs and restaurants to souvenir shops. At the end of El Médano’s 1.5 km long sandy bay is Montaña Roja (Red Mountain), an unique natural sight which is now a protected natural park.

Sothis Playa Sur

Sothis Language School is based in Hotel Playa Sur Tenerife, located right on the beach. Language school facilities available are classrooms, internet access and a café.

It is also possible to book your course in combination with accommodation. The friendly team of Hotel Playa Sur Tenerife strives to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
