Windsurfing on El Cabezo beach

A spot with extreme wind and waves in Tenerife
In the south of Tenerife, in the town of El Médano, there is a spot that is popular with the most experienced windsurfers due to the extreme wind and waves on offer at its beach: El Cabezo. Frequented by experienced windsurfers, the spot can be dangerous, especially on days when the waves and currents are powerful. The location forms part of the PWA (Professional Windsurfers Association) world tour for the discipline of wave sailing and is at its best when the trade winds blow N-NE.
Windsurfing on a beach of sand and volcanic reef
The left hand wave at El Cabezo is more consistent and has a better wall than the right hand wave. The bottom is sand and volcanic reef, and protruding rocks just off and to the right from launch area of the beach mean that it is worth avoiding at low tide. Nearby there are many services aimed at sports enthusiasts in the town of El Médano, which has a relaxed, holiday and surfer vibe.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
