Located on the south coast of Tenerife, Costa Adeje is a sophisticated and modern beach resort. Boasting stylish shops, luxurious golden beaches and a great choice of bars and restaurants, Costa Adeje’s laid-back vibe makes it a great place for young couples looking for a chilled-out holiday. If you’re thinking of whisking your partner away for a week in the Canarian sun, here are some of our top tips for things to do when you get there.
Grab your books, towels, and suntan lotion, and make a beeline for Playa del Duque beach. With silky golden sand imported from the Sahara Desert, it’s the perfect place to lie back and soak up the sunshine. In the evening, come back to enjoy a romantic walk along the shore.
Costa Adeje’s nightlife is relatively low key in comparison to nearby Playa de las Americas, but there’s still plenty to keep you and your partner entertained on a night out. The Claddagh Irish Bar is a favourite live music haunt, whilst the Kahluna Beach Club is the place to go for exotic cocktails and great sea views.
From guided dives to jet skiing, you’ll have plenty of water sports to pick from in Costa Adeje. Hire a double-seated jet bike and zip across the sea together. If you’d prefer something slower-paced, try snorkelling or diving at Playa del Duque beach. The beach’s specially constructed wave-breaker walls attract an array of sea life including green turtles, making it ideal for underwater exploration.
Whether you’re into upscale shopping malls or traditional craft stores, you’ll find what you’re after in Costa Adeje. Plaza del Duque’s designer boutiques include Escada and Cartier, while Centro Commercial Gran Sur features popular Spanish high street shops. For the best souvenirs, head to El Mirador, a traditional Canarian-style market of independent clothing and craft shops.
Get your pulses racing with a trip to Siam Park, Tenerife’s largest water park. Race each other down the thrilling Naga Racer slide, or surf the waves in the artificial wave pool. There’s also a Thai-themed floating market where you can enjoy a relaxing massage or indulge in a bit of retail therapy.
Cruise around Costa Adeje together on these safe and easy-to-drive motorised scooters. After a short training session, you’ll be taken on a tour around some of south Tenerife’s most scenic spots, including the cliffs overlooking Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos.
If it’s a special occasion, why not push the boat out and treat your partner to a romantic helicopter ride? You’ll get to enjoy panoramic views of the south coast’s popular resorts and dramatic volcanic landscape.
