Everybody loves ice cream! - by Kyrre Dahl
Nice surprise in El Medano, Tenerife

- 10.12.2013 - Kyrre Dahl - in category: Spain

There are tourists in El Medano, but it is far away from the tourist ghettos of Los Cristianos og Playa de Las Americas. I was therefore surprised when I found a good ice cream caf in the small town of El Medano, Tenerife.

It has a strange name and it is not directly on the tourist strip, but very close to it. Gelateria Demaestri lies on the red square right next to the old harbour, where the bus turns around. When I saw that Demaestri had spaghetti ice cream on the menu, I just had to try it.

And, I was not disappointed. It was not perfect as the cream is supposed to be inside the ice cream, not next to it, but otherwise it was very good ice cream with strawberry sauce. The price was 4.80 euros, cheaper than most places in Tenerife.

That said, the prices on the menu was both quite cheap and a little pricey. Other cups, copas, was quite expensive at 6 euros, but you could get one scoop of ice cream in a small cup for just 1,20 euros, which is cheap compared to what you have to pay in the more touristy areas on the island. And it is homemade and good-tasting, so quite a bargain.

Many people have never heard of El Medano, but it is the village you see next to the sea as your plane lands on Tenerife Sur. There is no bus connection to the airport, but there are buses to Los Cristianos and a few pr. day to Santa Cruz. El Medano itself is nice, with a combination of tourists and locals, and especially popular with surfers.
