Located south of Tenerife, the area of Costa Adeje has everything you need to spend a holiday surrounded by nature, which gives you the opportunity to visit beaches of all kinds, taste its cuisine and enjoy the outdoors in this magical environment. In addition, a trip to Lanzarote to live a different experience in natural seawater pools will undoubtedly make your trip perfect.
An experience that will be even more special if you book a room in one of the best hotels in the Canary Islands.
But let's take things at our own pace.
Multicolored beaches in Tenerife
If you would like to lounge about on a different beach every day, spending a holiday in Costa Adeje is a very good choice. Its 17 beaches, all of them quiet, family-friendly, close to urban centers and equipped with everything you need, will allow you to vary according to your tastes and what you feel like each day.
The beaches of Troya I and II and Playa del Bobo, easily accessible and well connected, are perhaps the most popular, and are next to a promenade with restaurants, cafes and shops. From Playa del Norte, we would like to highlight its toasty-colored sand and its tranquility, which contrasts with the clear sand and the gentle waves of the secluded Playa de la Pinta, ideal for those traveling to Costa Adeje with children, as are most of the beaches in the area. Adding the final touches to this multicolored palette, the volcanic sand of the beach of Las Salinas invites you to spend some pleasant hours under the sun.
Blue flags wave on various beaches of Costa Adeje, such as Torviscas, which is witness to the excellent environmental conditions of the area, while allowing us to admire the picturesque corners of rustic architecture and green spaces, such as Playa del Duque.
In between, and after having a swim in the nearby Fañabé beach, there is nothing better than replenishing your strength at the Sea Soul Costa Adeje, the beach club featured in the 5-star Iberostar Selection Anthelia hotel in Tenerife, with its tapas, rice and fish menu or their classic cocktails.
During mid-afternoon, a great idea is to enjoy the nature of Diego Hernández beach, located in a natural area that is accessed through several walking paths. As for photography lovers, a beautiful experience is to capture the cobblestone pyramids that visitors have created on the beach of La Enramada. And if diving is your passion, the beach of Los Morteros, in the natural protected area close to the Natural Landmark of Los Acantilados de La Caleta, will provide you with a great excuse to discover the ocean.
Sea and mountain gastronomy: this is the Canarian cuisine
Costa Adeje has good-standard international cuisine restaurants. But it would be a shame not to take advantage of this trip to learn about the typical Canarian cuisine dishes, such as ropa vieja, the rancho Canario, the puchero or the watercress stew (potaje de berros), among others.
Golf, surfing, kayaking, hiking, safaris ...
There is no time for boredom here! In Costa Adeje the little ones will find theme parks of all kinds, such as Siam Park, the best water park in the world according to TripAdvisor, or Jungle Park, a zoo and botanical park with 7.5 hectares of jungle where you will be pleasantly surprised by the more than 500 animals as well as exploring walking paths with tunnels, suspension bridges, waterfalls, lagoons and caves.
If you feel like playing golf in Tenerife, you are in the right place, since you have the opportunity of visiting up to eight different courses, including the Costa Adeje Golf course, designed taking advantage of the land’s natural characteristics and the stone walls that surrounded the old plantain areas, with views of the Atlantic Ocean and the island of La Gomera.
Surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, paddle surfing, diving ... You will find an optimal space for all these sports in Costa Adeje. You will also enjoy the beautiful scenery if you like hiking, crossing places like the Barranco del Infierno, which takes its name from the rugged terrain found in this protected natural park.
Lanzarote’s Natural pools
Since you are in the Canary Islands, an advisable experience to round off this trip to Costa Adeje is to visit Lanzarote, and especially to dive into its natural pools.
