Safety Tips When Travelling to Costa Adeje

A holiday to Costa Adeje promises a relaxing time amid shady palm trees and gently lapping turquoise waters. While you'll be excited, remember to always keep your wits about you. At Holiday Extras, we've put together some safety tips when travelling to Costa Adeje, as well as some useful information to keep handy. We've also got some airport transfers. These are a safe and reliable way to get from your plane to your destination.

Staying safe

Costa Adeje is an upmarket resort in Tenerife and, subsequently, it's a fairly safe place to be. Most hotel staff speak English, so if there are any issues at your accommodation, they should be able to help you out. Most police also have English language skills.

When out and about, only bring necessary items. If you can leave jewellery or electronics in a private place (your hotel room might have a safe), then that's advisable. When figuring out the currency, be discreet. There are often thieves on the lookout for vulnerable tourists and will target them when they're distracted.

Beaches

While Costa Adeje has generally calm and safe water, always be aware. Choose your beach with care: look out for ones like Playa de Fañabé and Playa de Torviscas which have manmade breakwaters that create safe pools free from tides. A few beaches are remote and secluded and, as such, don't have lifeguards. Keep an eye on anyone in the water – particularly children. A number of beaches will have flags indicating how safe they are that day: green means swimming is fine (but still be aware), while red means bathing is prohibited because of weather.
