Costa Adeje is a popular purpose-built resort on the south west coast of Tenerife. Nestled at the foot of a mountain range in Teide National Park there are modern bars, restaurants and shopping outlets, which help give Costa Adeje a stylish, laid-back feel. Cosy waterfront restaurants tempt you in to try the excellent local cuisine and shopping centres and markets invite you to shop to your heart’s content. There are plenty of sandy beaches and children are made to feel welcome in most places so it’s no wonder it’s a hit with families.

Fantastic beaches

This area has a wonderful coastline. There’s a brilliant range of beaches from dark volcanic sand and pebbly coves to bays with golden sand from the Sahara Desert. Costa Adeje has two Blue Flag beaches, both with modern facilities and lovely promenades. You can stroll along the seafront following the path from Playa Fanabe around the Toscas headland. Windsurfing, sailing, surfing and waterskiing are just a small taster of the wide choice of water sports you’ll find waiting for you. Behind the beaches are shopping centres with plenty of food options including fast food, British, international and Canarian.

Lush landscapes

There’s lots of striking scenery to be seen in and around Costa Adeje in the form of rugged mountains, volcanic remains, pine forests and canyons. It’s a great place for getting outdoors and being active. It’s well worth the hike through Barranco del Infierno canyon for incredible views; alternatively take the steep Arona mountain pass, which will lead you through a lush pine forest. One of the best ways to see some of the most dramatic landscapes is by walking along the coastal path. It won’t cost you anything of course and is a great chance for families to spend time together. A boat cruise is a relaxing way to see the coast from a different perspective and there are daily excursions from most of Costa Adeje’s beaches.
