Costa Adeje can be found on the southwest coast of Tenerife. The area has year-round sunshine and is a popular holiday destination for families, couples and single travellers.
As a coastal area, many of the things to do in Costa Adeje centre around the beaches. Paragliding, boat trips and beach-side bars are just some of the things on offer. When it comes to dining out, the variety of cafes, restaurants and bars available is wide.
Mediterranean, British, Indian and Chinese eateries line the streets close to the beach offering menus to suit every taste and budget. Shopping is plentiful as well, with weekly markets and two commercial centres to browse around. For lovers of the sport, there's a championship golf course in Costa Adele with views across to the island of La Gomera.
With around 11 different beaches in Costa Adeje, there's a perfect patch of sand for everyone. Lively Playa Fanabe offers all kinds of water sport activities and there are plenty of places to eat and drink at the back of the beach. For dark volcanic sand, spend the day on quieter Playa de Ajabo where there are umbrellas and loungers to hire and a handful of bars for refreshments. For somewhere a bit more upmarket, head to the Playa del Duque which is backed by luxury hotels and fine restaurants.
Spend a day away from the beach and visit the Aqualand water park. There are water slides with names like Tornado and Kamikaze for adrenaline junkies, and family play pools for the little ones. The daily dolphin show is not to be missed either. Get there by a shuttle bus that collects visitors from a few locations around Costa Adeje.
When it comes to booking 4 star hotels in Costa Adeje, visitors are spoiled for choice. All the hotels have great pool areas, with plenty of sun loungers and parasols dotted around the edges, so making the most of the sunshine is easy to do. The Hotel Jardin Tropical has large gardens and a lagoon pool with views over the sea. For an all-inclusive option, the Bahia Principe Tenerife offers four restaurants, entertainment, a kids' club and a spa. The H10 Las Palmeras is a modern, chic hotel with tennis courts and a small gym for visitors who like to keep fit on holiday.
