Best for Watersports - Expert review of Playa Machado

Tenerife's Nirvana for windsurfers and kiteboarders.

In the bohemian resort of El Médano on the east coast, is the windurfer's paradise of Playa Machado.

Littered with brightly coloured sails on all but the calmest of days (a rare day in El Médano) the beach is entirely given over to the wind catchers.

Lining the boardwalk are shops and hire outlets providing everything a surf dude could possibly need.

Expert tips: 
Kite boarders should head to La Cabeza at the resort headland for bigger waves.
Non surfers will find the town beach more sheltered for catching rays without sand.
